Coronavirus: Extension to deadlines for filing Annual Accounts

25-Mar-2020 9:25 AM | Anonymous

From 25 March 2020 businesses can apply for a 3-month extension for filing their accounts to allow for the prioritisation of managing the impact of Coronavirus.

Companies will have to apply for the 3-month extension but 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.

If you do not apply for an extension and your accounts are filed late, an automatic penalty will be imposed. The registrar has very limited discretion not to collect a penalty.

Companies that have already extended their filing deadline, or shortened their accounting reference period, may not be eligible for an extension.
