The annual return which is currently lodged at Companies house is being replaced with an annual check and confirm “confirmation statement”.  These changes are scheduled to come into force in April 2016.

In an attempt to reduce fraudulent activity, the day the director was born is no longer made public at Companies House – only the month and year is now visible on the public register.  However, the new rules do not appear to remove historic data previously filed with this information on it.

If you have any queries or would like to know more please let us know.
