Statutory Accounts

what are statutory accounts

All Limited Companies in the UK must submit Statutory Accounts to Companies House. These accounts are also commonly known as ‘Annual Accounts’ or ‘Year-end Accounts’ and depending on the size of the business, the accounts required may be simpler or more complex, but they must be filed annually.

Statutory Accounts take the form of financial reports showing the financial performance of a company during the year and the financial position at the end of the year. A Profit & Loss statement (P&L) and balance sheet must be included, as well as notes about the accounts and a Directors report.

    ensuring you remain compliant

    Statutory Accounts must be fully compliant with IFRS (International Financial Reporting Standards) or the UK GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Practice).

    To avoid penalties, the accounts, must be filed with Companies House within 21 months of business formation and within nine months of the end of each financial year thereafter. Once complete, statutory accounts must be signed by a company director.

    Depending on the type, what do statutory accounts include?

    • A balance sheet
    • A profit and loss statement
    • Notes about the accounts
    • A director’s report
    • An accountants or auditor’s report (if an audit is being completed)
