The Confirmation Statement is a yearly statutory filing requirement for UK companies. It replaced the Annual Return in 2016 and collects important information about your company. Unless you have changed the filing date this must be filed within a two weeks of the anniversary of the incorporation date. The Confirmation Statement depicts the current structure of a business on a given date, displaying information of the current appointments, persons of significant control and details of the share capital. Failing to file can lead to a company being struck off the register so it is essential company directors are aware of this filing responsibility.
