Closing a company with excess 1 yr final accs

I need to close down company & file final a/cs with more than 12 months accounts

Didn't find your answer?

Could anyone tell me how to do this?  The trading period needs to run a few weeks over the 12 months to allow the last few transactions to go through the company and then it can be closed down as no longer required.    Appreciate your help and advice.

For tax ?

You can't.

Maximum length of a Corporation Tax period is twelve months.

Or for Companies House ?

No need to file if you're applying for striking off.

Thanks for your response.
Just to clarify, once I've filed the year outstanding, I can strike off without filing closing accounts, even if there have been further balance sheet transactions? (payments in/out)

Your filing obligations at Cos House end when you have filed your application to strike off. No matter how many years' accounts are outstanding.

But do I still need to file closing accounts with HMRC?

Yes, of course. The company must pay its taxes.

Was it actually trading past the 12 months or just collecting the trade debtors?

Not trade debtors, but loan repayments in and out
