Extending Companies House filing deadline
My client has a 31 March year end. We are unlikely to meet the 31 Dec filing deadline due to personal circumstances (his not mine). I don't think Companies House will give an extension as I know they can be very unsympathetic and they will not consider that his circumstances warrant an extension (it relates to illness of a close friend, not family).
But I know if I change the year end the filing deadline is extended. Can someone please remind me how this works. If I extend the year end to say 6/4/12 I can still do accounts to 31/3/12 as it is within 7 days of the year end and the filing deadline will be extended to ....?
