In April, Companies House introduced temporary measures to support businesses during the coronavirus outbreak. The changes primarily affected the strike-off and late filing penalties processes.
The voluntary strike-off process will resume on 10 September 2020 and, from 10 October 2020, Companies House will resume action to strike off and dissolve companies through the compulsory strike off route. For companies which are late filing their Annual Accounts and/or Confirmation Statement, Companies House will continue to send correspondence requesting these documents. From 10 October, if the company has still not filed the relevant documentation, further strike-off action will be taken including the publishing of Gazette notices as per normal procedure.
