Companies House Support for Businesses Hit by COVID-19

Businesses will be given additional support to help them meet their legal responsibilities under changes announced recently.

Companies House will temporarily pause the strike off process to prevent companies being dissolved. This will give businesses affected by the coronavirus outbreak the time they need to update their records and help them avoid being struck off the register.

In addition, companies issued with a late filing penalty due to COVID-19 will have appeals treated sympathetically.

This news builds on measures already implemented by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which give businesses the ability to apply for a 3 month extension to file accounts with Companies House
