When it comes to snow, companies often face difficult decisions. Should you stay open and hope your customers are braving the cold weather? Or just shut up shop, send everyone home and accept that the next few days will be a write-off?

If ‘snowmaggedon’ has well and truly set in, or is due your way soon, here are 7 things your company can do to make the most of a snow day.

Register for online filing

If you haven’t already, register for online filing and save your company time and money. Over 80% of companies already file online and amongst other things, benefit from built-in checks that help you to avoid errors, and the possibility of rejection.

Sign-up for email reminders

As an online filer, you can then sign-up to our email reminder service. When your company’s due to file its accounts or confirmation statement, we’ll send you a reminder by email, giving you plenty of time to meet the filing deadline.

 Check company information for free

Check if your company records are up to date using Companies House Service. You can view your filing history, check when your next set of accounts or confirmation statement is due and make sure your People with Significant Control (PSC) information is correct.

 Use our Follow service

Start using our Follow service to keep tabs on your own company’s filings or follow your business competitors and receive instant email alerts when they file anything with us.
