Limited Company Filings at Companies House
Companies House have stated that if immediately before the filing deadline, it becomes apparent that a company’s accounts will not be filed on time due to coronavirus (COVID-19), they may make an application to extend the period allowed for filing.
Applications to extend the filing deadline can be made online. Please contact your account manager if you wish to apply for this.
HMRC Time To Pay
HM Revenue & Customs to increase capacity for their “Time to Pay” arrangements by having 2,000 further staff available to man the dedicated hotline (0800 0159 559) for those with outstanding tax liabilities who are experiencing hardship due to coronavirus.
HM Revenue & Customs are also to waive late payment penalties and accrued interest where a business experiences delays and difficulties in contacting them or making payments due to coronavirus.
We recommend that you speak to your account manager if you anticipate making late payments due to coronavirus and obtain their assistance in appealing against any late payment penalties or interest charges issued by HM Revenue & Customs.
