Companies House (Email) and (Letter)

Dear Mr Shan


Thank you for your e mail of 17/10/2014 concerning the overdue annual
return (form AR01) for 05/09/2014 which should have been filed by

I can advise our records show we have received your accounts for the
company. Accounts for the period ending 31/08/2014 were received and
accepted for filing on 03/10/2014.

As the company is required to remain on the register, the proposed
strike off action has been discontinued. The failure to file an annual
return is a criminal offence but I will defer any prosecution action
until 18/11/2014.

If the company record is not brought up-to-date by that time, the
directors may face criminal proceedings. Conviction for this offence
will result in a criminal record and a fine of up to £5,000 for each
document not delivered on time.

You may be able to deliver your annual return form online via our Web
Filing service, which has in-built checks to ensure that you get it
right first time. Our web-site www.companieshouse.gov.uk gives
information on this along with a full range of guidance booklets and
forms. The filing fee for filing the annual return online is currently

    You probably should remove the name of your client from the text you've entered.

    @BeccalouJ9 looking at the user name I wonder if it is the owner of the company himself asking the question.
    Becca is right it is asking you to file an annual return (not the statutory accounts). You can find more info on:

    If you are indeed the owner of the company you may want to discuss this with your accountant?
