Companies House, average number of employees check

From 13/10/2020

Didn't find your answer?

Appears that from 13/10/2020 Companies House will be 'validating' the average number of employees note on all electronic submissions of statutory accounts.

Fairly sure that for years DIYers using the Companies House templates have been filing accounts without this info. Wonder if Companies House appreciate the irony.

Does "validating" mean checking the veracity of the information supplied. If so how will they do it? Perhaps contact HMRC and ask them - good luck with that

Doubt it. They used to 'validate' signatures by insisting they were in black ink. Didn't matter if they were forged and completely different from previous signatures by the same director- what mattered was the colour of the ink!

I love a good irony, me.

Btw, you forgot to select the anonymous option. You are so far behind the trend that it's almost lapped you.

I am pretty sure the only check is that there is a tagged field, not that the field is correct.

Its classic "file something even if its wrong" tick box compliance.
