A reminder about the change in Companies House filing deadlines for accounts from 10 months to 9 months.

This applies to Companies and LLPs for their financial year starting after 6 April 2008.

For most companies with a 31 March year end this means the 10 month deadline still applies for their 31 March 2009 year end, as the year started before 6 April 2008, however these companies will have a 9 month deadline from their 31 March 2010 onwards.

However some companies with a 31 March 2009 year end will have a 9 month deadline if either (i) they have changed their accounting year by shortening it or (ii) this is the first year of trading and is less than a full 365 days (or less than 360 days to be precise).
