Year-End Financial Statement

All UK registered company must prepare and file statutory annual accounts or year-end-financial statements 9 months after the company year-end date. It is the director’s responsibility to prepare and file the account on the due date or the filing deadline, whether the company is actively trading or dormant and failure will result in a late-filing penalty. Our accountants will support you in creating and filing the company statutory financial statements, accurately, correctly and on time to avoid the last mintue rush.

Benefits of having a Limited Liability Company

Limited Liability

If you run a limited company, you are personally protected should things go wrong. As a company director, you will not be personally liable for any financial losses made by the company.

A Separate Entity

A limited company is a legal entity in its own right. That means everything from bank accounts to assets is in the company’s name; they are owned by the company, not the directors or shareholders.

Professional Image

If you plan to do business with larger companies, it’s good for perception to work as a limited company, which gives off a more professional appearance.

Tax Liability

The company will pay corporation tax on profits after accounting for all allowable expenses. As a director and shareholder, you can elect to take the majority of your income in dividends, enabling you to manage your own tax liability and potentially save on National Insurance costs.


 In addition to limited liability protection (see above), your company name is protected by law upon the successful completion of registration. Companies House has very stringent rules about the naming of companies, preventing anyone else from using your name or anything deemed too similar.

Ownership and Succession

If you are the sole shareholder in a business, you own that business. However, a limited liability company can easily transfer ownership of shares. Also, existing shareholders can sell a stake in the company to other parties at any time, though this may involve personal tax implications.
