Released 25 March 2021
Companies House has confirmed that the automatic extensions granted by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 will come to an end for filing deadlines that fall after 5 April 2021.
The Act granted automatic extensions for filing deadlines between 27 June 2020 and 5 April 2021 to relieve the burden on companies during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and allow them to focus all their efforts on continuing to operate. Automatic extensions were granted for accounts, confirmation statements, event-driven filings and mortgage charges.
Companies house has confirmed that there will be no further automatic extensions for confirmation statement filings, accounts filings and event-driven filings after 5 April 2021. After this date, companies need to file documents by the usual deadlines.
