Late Filing of Annual Returns and Filing Form B83

Since commencement of the Companies Act 2014 (“CA2014”), on a transitional basis, requests to accept a late Form B83 (Alteration of Financial Year End) have been considered on an individual basis. With effect from 1 January 2018 such discretion will no longer apply. What this means, in practical terms, is that if a company delivers a Form B83 with a late Annual Return, it may not alter the Financial Year End for the financial period to which that Annual Return relates (i.e. it cannot alter the previous Year End).
