What is a Confirmation Statement

No matter if you own a small business, or own a multimillion-pound Company, you must file your Confirmation statement each year or risk criminal consequences.

That sounds intimidating but it is usually a very simple process. The confirmation statement (previously called Annual Return) is a document that limited companies and LLP’s must file at Companies house every year. The confirmation statement contains the general details of the company such as its directors, shareholders, registered address and nature of the business.

How to File Your Confirmation Statement

Firstly, you will need to make a Web filing account on Companies House.

Secondly, assuming your company has been registered to Companies house, you should have you Company number and Authentication number, using these you can access your companies’ details.

Once you have logged into your Web Filing account and accessed the company that you wish to file for you will need to update the following information 

  • Registered office address
  • Directors and Company Secretary
  • Address of your statutory records 
  • Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code – what your company or LLP does
  • Information about the share capital (share classes, share class rights, number and value of shares in issue, amount unpaid on the shares)
  • Shareholders, guarantors, or LLP members
  • People with Significant Control (PSCs)
