Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.
It is a great pity you did not prepare your company accounts when you did your company returns as they can be filed along with the other returns when you do your Corporation Tax (CT) declaration.
If you have not done the latter then file them on line and if you select the appropriate box an abbreviated return for Companies House will be extracted and filed automatically.
Alternatively Companies House will still accept abbreviated accounts on A4 paper format.
What you must do now is prepare your company accounts, file them with HMRC for CT and at the same time accept the CH filing option as you do so. Then it is all over.
I do hope I have helped point you in the right direction.
Hi Keith many thanks for your response, it surely did put me on the right course and I think I understand the process a little better now.
I've been told that as I'm seeking to strike off the company, it may be best to do this as it negates the need to fill in the company account. Can you tell me if this is indeed correct? The company only ever traded small amounts and has been inactive for the past 6 months.
Thanks for all your help Keith! It's much appreciated.
