Abbreviated accounts dates for submission


I checked a Company to see if they had filed abbreviated accounts.

So (say) they registered the Company on 1st August 2014, normal last date to file would be 1st May 2016, exactly 9 months after 1st August 2015. Accounting period would end 31st August 2015.

What the company has done is shortened the accounting period to (say) 1st August 2015 and now they don't have to file abbreviated accounts until 1st August 2016.

I'm just curious as to how that works?

Hi John,

It is a get out of jail card for people who leave it until the last minute. If you change the ARD ( but this has to be before that date) you are given 3 months from the change date to file the accounts.

Gordon

Ah, that explains it then. Thanks Gordon.

Would it then revert back to the 31st May for the following year?

Hi John,
No the ARD would not revert unless changed again. Although I mentioned it as a get out of jail card, there could be other good reasons to lengthen or shorten the period. Companies House website has a section on changing the ARD, which is properly worth a quick read for future reference.

Regards
Gordon
