What is a Confirmation Statement?
All businesses must meet statutory obligations, which are set out by Companies House in the Companies Act. Every year companies must comply by submitting a confirmation statement (previously called an annual return) to Companies House with up-to-date information about your company. The confirmation statement needs to detail:
- The internal structure of a limited company or LLP including registered office, directors, secretary and the address where your company keep your records
- Statement of capital and shareholder information which could include an increase, sub-division or consolidation of shares
- Share transfers in the confirmation period
- Trade classification code or SIC code (the number that identifies what your company does)
- A register of ‘people with significant control’ (PSC)
- Changes in your company’s trading name

Very pleased - professional and prompt service, with relevant points remembered and followed up a few months later. I would definitely recommend this firm. They act with integrity - something which is often lacking in many high street accountants these days (as I've discovered to my cost previously)Julie J.

I use an accountant to give me comfort that I'm paying and have paid the right amount of tax. Kieran and his team do that and more at very fair prices!
