Running a business brings with it many challenges and concerns, and the production of statutory accounts (also called annual accounts) is no exception. If you want to make sure you do not miss anything and that your reports are accurate and provided on time, then you should consider our Nottingham annual accounts services. Not only do we give you an accurate picture of your business, but we also have a unique diary system which helps us prepare and send information on time.

What are statutory accounts?

Almost all registered companies in the UK have to prepare statutory accounts for HMRC and Companies House every year. Their purpose is to report the financial activity of the company. They are also used to determine the amount of tax due. There are different deadlines for your tax return to HMRC and for sending your accounts to Companies House. To ensure you do not miss the deadline and to submit accurate accounts, it’s always better to search for professional help.

Based in Nottingham, our company has many years of experience in providing tailored year-end accounts. No matter how large the project is, we always give our customers a first-class service.

  • They give you a clear picture of your business and its progress;
  • They help ensure your tax returns are completed to the required standards and timescales;
  • Any tax bill not paid punctually will increase over time.

statutory accounts are a report of a company’s financial details. They are usually done as a profit and loss account and a balance sheet.

Annual accounts must be produced and filed every year.

Your ARD is the date on which your company’s accounting reference period finishes. Your ARD is calculated by the month end after one year of incorporation.


Company incorporated 15th January 2019

Accounting Reference Date: 31st January 2020 (and 31st January for all subsequent years)

A company’s first accounts start on the date of incorporation and finish on the ARD. All subsequent accounts start a day after the previous accounts and finish on the ARD.

Annual accounts must typically include:

  • A profit and loss account
  • A balance sheet which has been signed by a director
  • Notes for the accounts
  • Group accounts if applicable


Accounts should usually be submitted alongside:

  • An auditors’ report
  • A directors’ report

The late fees from Companies House range from £150 to £1,500 and are determined by the length of the delay.
