What is Year End?

In the UK, businesses require to report their statutory accounts annually to the Companies House and HMRC. Year end refers to the day when your business's financial year ends.

For all the limited companies, partnerships, charity and non-profit businesses registered at Companies House, year end is the last day of the month of the company formation, beginning from the subsequent year. So, if your company was formed on 15th March 2023, your first year end date is 31st March 2024.

What is Year End Accounting?

Year-end accounting, also known as year-end financial reporting, refers to the process of finalizing and summarizing a company's financial activities at the end of its fiscal year. The fiscal year is the 12-month period that a company uses for financial reporting.

Key aspects of year-end accounting include:

  1. Financial Statements: Year-end accounting involves the preparation of financial statements, including the income statement (profit and loss statement), balance sheet, and cash flow statement. These statements provide a comprehensive overview of the company's financial performance, position, and cash flows during the fiscal year.
  2. Closing the Books: Companies "close the books" at the end of the fiscal year. This process involves completing all financial transactions, making necessary adjustments, and ensuring that the financial records accurately reflect the company's business activities for the entire year.
  3. Compliance: Year-end accounting is crucial for ensuring compliance with accounting regulatory requirements, and legal obligations. Companies must adhere to specific reporting standards and deadlines set by UK government.
  4. Tax Planning: The year-end is a critical time for tax planning. Companies assess their taxable income, apply deductions, and calculate their tax liability. Proper tax planning can help optimize a company's tax position.
  5. Financial Analysis: The financial statements prepared at year end provide a basis for analyzing the company's financial health and performance. Stakeholders, including investors, creditors, and management, use this information to make informed decisions and assess the company's overall financial condition.
  6. Strategic Planning: Year-end accounting is often linked to strategic planning for the next year. Companies use the insights gained from the financial statements to set financial goals, develop budgets, and plan for future initiatives.

Who Requires to File Year End Accounts?

All the limited companies, LLPs, charity and non-profit registered with Companies House are legally obliged to report to HMRC and Companies House annually. The company's birthday, which means the day when the company started trading as registered with Companies House, considered as the start of the fiscal year. The year-end falls on the day before the company's birthday in the next calendar year. Do not confuse it with the tax year, which runs from 6th April to 5th April. Usually, your financial year is the same as your accounting period for corporation tax. This is the period on which you need to report Company Tax Return to HMRC and your Statutory Accounts to Companies House. Sometimes, you can file both of them together.

Financial year-end reporting is a legal obligation, ensuring accurate tax payments and providing precise information about the company to the public, banks, shareholders, and potential investors.

While typically delegated to accountants, company directors are responsible prepare and file year end accounts, file corporation tax return and pay on time. We recommend hiring a small business accountant for your year-end reporting.

Apart from the year end accounts, you need to submit your VAT returns (if the company is VAT-registered) and your Confirmation Statement.

Components of Year-End Accounts

Company Tax Return:

You need to submit form CT600 to HMRC which contains the details of your turnover, expenses, tax allowances and profit. HMRC calculates the corporation tax you owe based on this information.

Statutory Accounts:

Also known as annual accounts, you need to submit it to the Companies House. Summarize overall outgoings and income instead of detailing individual transactions in statutory accounts. Statutory accounts consist of following:

  • Profit and Loss Statement (or Income Statement)
  • Balance Sheet (or Statement of Company’s Financial Position)
  • Director’s Report
  • Notes to the Financial Statements

Year End Accounts Deadline

There are different deadlines to submit to both HMRC and Companies House as stated below:

What Submission Deadline
First accounts to Companies House
21 months after your company’s registration date
Next annual accounts with Companies House 9 months after the end of your company’s financial year
Paying corporation tax to HMRC 9 months and 1 day after the end of your accounting period
Filing Company Tax Return with HMRC 12 months after the end of your accounting period

Company Accounts Late Filing Penalty

There are late filing penalties both for HMRC and Companies House. Take both the reporting obligations seriously or the company can be struck off from the register. You need to pay late filing penalties based on how late you submit:

Late period Penalty Amount
Up to 1 month £150
1 to 3 months £375
3 to 6 months £750
Over 6 months £1,500
