Ltd Companies accounts dates change?


M

Mick Miller

I have set up a ltd company over a year ago, for the first 6 months it
was dormant then started to operate it.

companies house and the tax office think my accountancy period starts
at formation can is this correct or can i change this to reflect my
true trading.

Thanks

Put in 6 months accounts and then 12 months if you wish.

You can choose your own period end by sending in a form from Companies
House. You have to start your period from the formation date though.
Look at the precise rules on Companies House website.

our resident dildo, peter sextoy isn't very good with advice....

http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk is the main site.
look for change of accounting reference date and form 225

OK, it's at:
http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/about/gbhtml/gba3.shtml#one


You'll get a pdf version of 225 at:
http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/forms/generalForms/225.pdf


you'll need to read *very carefully* the bit that says :

<quote>You may not extend a period so that it lasts more than 18 months from
the start date of the accounting period. <unquote>

as I guess it'll apply to you if you've had at least 6 months of being dormant
and you can't just "choose your own period end".

Of course you can.

You may be filing a set of completely dormant accounts, but that happens all
the time.
