  • Informing HMRC that your company is active: When your company starts trading, you must inform HMRC. You can do so by downloading the form CT41G (Corporation Tax - Information for New Companies) from HMRC website, completing the form and sending it to HMRC.
  • Data Protection Registration: Do you use personal information on a living and identifiable individual? If the answer is yes, then you need to register for Data Protection and notify the Information Commissioner's Office. Failure to notify is a criminal offence and carries a fine of up to £5,000.
  • Annual Return: An annual return is a general information about the company's directors, registered office address, shareholders and share capital. Every UK company must file an annual return to Companies House at least once every 12 months. It must be filed within 28 days of the anniversary of incorporation of a company or the anniversary of the made-up date of the last annual return.
  • Annual Accounts: Every UK company, whether it is trading or not, must file their annual accounts at Companies House. You must do so 9 months after your company's financial year ends.
