Extension to accounts & confirmation statement deadlines
On 27 June new regulations were signed into law which provides extensions to accounts & confirmation statement deadlines. The key changes are outlined below.
The filing deadline will be automatically extended if it falls any time from 27 June 2020 to 5 April 2021. This will be a three month extension. If your company has already had an extension the extension granted by the regulations will apply to your original filing deadline. If you’ve extended your company’s accounting reference period you will be eligible for a legislative extension if your filing deadline falls on or before 5 April 2021.
The current 14 day deadline to file your confirmation statement will be extended to 42 days. The review date will remain the same.
