Dormant CompanyDo you own a company, which is not doing any business? Tax Navigator in London can assist you with your dormant company accounting compliance at a fixed annual fee. There are different circumstances that may call for keeping your company in a dormant status, whether or not you have the intention to start or resume business activities at some point in the future. And even if the entity is exempt from audit, you still need to comply with Companies House annual accounts requirements.

To avoid serious penalties for incorrect or late submissions of your dormant company accounts at the end of your accounting year, you can count on our qualified team of specialists who can handle everything on your behalf.

Dormant Company Accounts Preparation for Companies House

The two main business regulators in the UK have different definitions for company dormancy and the slightest knowledge gaps in the legislation specifics, with regards to your annual accounting obligations, can bring upon hefty monetary sanctions to the company owner. Companies House considers a business entity dormant if there is no evidence that the latter had any major transactions in the financial year. Those do not include fees and penalties paid to Companies House, or payments made to shareholders when the company was formed. You still need, however, to file your annual accounts with Companies House on time, as well as submit the Confirmation statement, even if your company has stopped trading or it has been dormant since its formation.

Tax Navigator’s accounting team will:

  • Liaise on your behalf with Companies House
  • Prepare and file the Confirmation statement on time
  • Prepare and submit your dormant company annual accounts (usually abbreviated)
  • Can assist you with registering your company as dormant
  • Ensure the dormant status of your company (no accidental significant transactions are carried out)

HMRC regards a company as dormant, usually, for corporation tax purposes. This might be if a startup business has not begun trading yet, a company has not had any income because business activities have been suspended temporarily or in some other circumstances.

When your company is dormant for Companies House, you will still need to inform HMRC, which we can assist you with. You will be exempt from filing a corporate tax return unless you have received a notice to deliver your company tax return, which would indicate to HMRC that the company is dormant.

Please, do not hesitate to contact Tax Navigator if you seek assistance with restarting your business again. Our team of qualified accountants will help you in every step of the way with registering your company with HMRC for all the relevant taxes.

I’ve been working as a self-employed window cleaner for over two years and always had trouble getting my self assessment return done on time and filled correctly. A mate of mine recommended your accountants and I have to say, no regrets whatsoever. Thanks, guys, for being so easy going but professional at the same time. I never knew that there were ways to save on tax through claiming legit expenses. Cheers!

The partnership between „Gelma Services Ltd”, the company I represent, and „Tax Navigator” started about 8 months ago. At the beginning when choosing them I relied mostly on my intuition as both companies have been quite new. However, for me, our first few conversations appeared to be enough to decide to trust their team. Here are some of the main reasons to believe that my choice of tax and accounting consultant was right:+ The unquestionable competence of the executive team+ Clear and comprehensive response to all my queries+ They deal quickly and competently with all the specific issues of their work fieldThat is more than enough for me to remain a satisfied client of “Tax Navigator”.

My daughter persuaded me to look for online accounting services for our family cleaning business and I checked out the Xero software. It all seemed self-explanatory, on their site, but there was a problem convincing our accountant to use it, too. Conservative as he is, he simply refused to accept that I would no longer need to send him my records on a spreadsheet and toil for hours just so it is convenient for him. Well, we parted amicably, as soon as I found you, nice people. Great to work with young professionals, who are technologically-minded and more importantly - Xero experts. So much time on my hands now, thanks to you!

It is a great relief to find affordable help with my bookkeeping, which I’ve always found excruciating to deal with. Your accountant Iva is very friendly, competent and helpful. I would bother her with all sorts of questions but she is always there with the right answer. Thank you, Iva! Great service, Tax Navigator! Will recommend.
