Where can one check the due date for the Confirmation Statement?

Given that there is a public register of companies run by Companies House in the UK, finding out about the deadline for filing the Confirmation Statement is easy.

All you need to do is to take the following simple steps:

  1. Visit the Companies House website.
  2. Enter the company name in the “Enter company name, number or officer name” field.
  3. Click on the company name in the search results.
  4. After the main details of the company (name, address, status, form, date of formation) are shown, information about the company reporting and filing deadlines for the Confirmation Statement will appear.

This is the deadline for filing the Confirmation Statement and it is not to be missed.

If you miss out on the filing deadline for the Confirmation Statement for your company, a notice saying “Confirmation Statement overdue” will be displayed with a red exclamation mark on the left side.


You can also find the last filing date beside the upcoming due date. This is because the Confirmation Statement must be filed yearly.
