What is a Confirmation Statement, When Does it Need Filing & What are its Contents?

Guidance Notes – Confirmation Statement

CO.CS.01

From June 2016 companies no longer submit an annual return. Instead companies are required to confirm (and update) similar information at any time during a 12 month period in a confirmation statement. It is a criminal offence not to do this and the company and its officers may be prosecuted for failure to file a confirmation statement within the specified time period. 

This Guidance Note is a user friendly and practical guide covering what a confirmation statement is, how and when it needs to be filed as well as the contents of the confirmation statement. More information is available on Companies House website.

This note has been updated as of June 2017 following changes to the people with significant control (PSC) regime. PSC information is now confirmed in the confirmation statement but all updates must be submitted directly to Companies House in a much shorter timeframe and on forms PSC01 – PSC09. Further details can be found in our PSC Registers group of documents.
