Dormant accounts are a specific annual accounts filing for dormant companies only. The actual filing is what’s known as Form AA02 by Companies House.
A dormant company is a company that had ‘no significant accounting transactions’ during its financial year. Such companies are considered inactive for Corporation Tax purposes because they are not involved in any kind of trading activity.A business is considered dormant when it:
Only Limited companies by shares and limited companies by guarantee are able to file dormant accounts.They can only file dormant accounts if:
Companies House will issue an automatic £150 late filing penalty if the deadline is missed.
Penalties will increase the longer a company goes without filing their accounts. If a company misses their accounts filing deadline two years in a row, the penalties levied would be doubled from the previous year.
The late filing of the annual accounts is considered a criminal offence, directors coulda face personal prosecution and receive a fine of up to £1,500. If a company repeatedly files late accounts the company could be at risk of being struck-off the register and dissolved by Companies House.
When filing dormant company accounts, we will mark the shares as GBP Sterling by default as well as mark all shares as paid.
Paid shares means the shareholders have paid the company for their shares. Unpaid shares means the shareholders have not paid the company for their shares.
Submitting shares as unpaid means that shareholders owe money to the company, this is a tax liability as it can be interpreted that the company has lent out money to the shareholders who may then be required to submit an S419 tax charge. Contact our support team if you have any queries relating to paid or unpaid shares regarding your dormant company.
Whilst this depends on Companies House workload, dormant accounts are usually filed between 1 - 2 working days (excluding weekends and holidays).
It doesn’t matter how big or small the transaction actually is. If any transaction(s) took place, the company will lose its dormant status.
