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 ....?
