Companies House are now allowing businesses to apply for automatic extensions if the coronavirus pandemic has affected their ability to meet deadlines.

The maximum extension is three months, but stringent conditions apply, the most important being that any appeal must be lodged before a company's filing deadline.

Updated government advice states that all appeals are treated on a case-by-case basis, and the COVID-19 appeals process will follow the existing criteria based on those for unforeseen poor health.

Although we are currently still working as normal at Prime to fulfil your accounting requirements, if you believe your filing deadline may be affected, please contact us today to discuss any concerns.
