From 25th March 2020, businesses will be able to apply for a 3 month extension for filing their accounts.

The joint initiative between government and Companies House will mean that businesses can prioritise managing the impact of Coronavirus.

Companies will have to apply for the 3-month extension to be granted and those citing issues around COVID-19 will be automatically and immediately granted an extension. Applications can be made through a fast-tracked online system which will take just 15 minutes to complete.
