Prepare annual accounts for a private limited company

Corrections and amendments

You must send amended accounts to Companies House on paper.

Amended or corrected accounts must be for the same period as the original accounts.

You must clearly say in your new accounts that they:

  • replace the original accounts
  • are now the statutory accounts
  • are prepared as they were at the date of the original accounts

Write “amended” on the front so that Companies House know your accounts are not duplicates.

Your original accounts will remain on file at Companies House.

If you only want to amend one part of your accounts, you need to send a note saying what’s been changed. The note must be signed by a director and filed with a copy of the original accounts.
