Every year a UK company has to file an Annual Return with Companies House. The form is called AR01. This form is several pages long and asks you to provide the current structure of the company on the date the form is due.
The form can be processed manually by post at Companies House or online using the web filing service. We would recommend that where possible an Annual Return is submitted online. This ensures the document is submitted correctly and also provides a quick confirmation that the form has been accepted or rejected. Postal applications often experience delays and lead to incorrect completed forms.
