The financial year for Limited Companies runs from 1st April to 31st March and the financial year for Sole Traders and Partnerships runs from 6th April to 5th April each year. Limited companies have 9 months to complete and submit their company accounts to Companies House and HMRC and Sole Traders and Partnerships have 10 months. The final filing date for self-assessment is 31st January each year. After which fines of £100.00 commence. Filing company accounts at Companies House on time and within strict deadline dates is essential as severe financial penalties for late filing are imposed and Companies house will dissolve your company if you fail to file company forms such as confirmation statements or company accounts.
It is the aim of the HMRC for all company and personal accounts to be filed digitally each quarter like the filing of vat returns which is known as Making Tax Digital. HMRC propose to do this by 2020 but some experts have argued this is not feasible at present so the filing of annual self-assessment tax returns will continue until further notice. Tax returns are issued each year to tax payers in April and must be filed by the following 31st January.
