Company struck-off the Companies House register
If directors are late in filing their company accounts, and don’t reply to warnings from Companies House, their company can be struck-off the Companies House register and cease to exist.
If Companies House doesn’t receive a response from a company to three reminders sent over a two month period, it will commence proceedings to strike-off the company.
The legal steps in Companies Act 2006, s 1000, due to changes made by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015, s 103, can take only four months.
Therefore; you must act on correspondence received from Companies House otherwise you can lose your company!
Legislation: Companies Act 2006, s 1000 / Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015, s 103
