Late filing penalty statistics 2015-2016

A statistical report on late filing penalties imposed and appeals received for private, public limited companies and limited liability partnerships.



We’re proposing to change the size and format of our statistical releases and the frequency we publish them. Read more information on the proposal or access the consultation on Companies House statistical products.

The figures in this report give details of:

  • penalties imposed
  • appeals received
  • discretion used not to collect penalty
  • penalties cancelled
  • value of penalties imposed by month

The figures quoted are for appeals received. Discretion used not to collect and penalties cancelled may not apply to the penalties imposed in the same month as differences in time can occur.
