Regardless of whether your company is dormant (not trading), you still have annual requirements that your company must complete as you would do for a fully trading company. You don't have to pay Corporation Tax or send a Tax Return if you're dormant.
Please Note: Avoiding filing these can result in penalty fines or dissolution of your company.
Your annual dormant company requirements with Companies House are:
Confirmation Statement - You will need to choose the dormant SIC code (99999)
Dormant Company Accounts - The accounts will be marked as 'nil'
*A special bundle of both of these services can be purchased from any of the above links
Simple Tip: You will also need to inform HMRC that you are dormant to avoid any issues in regards notices to pay Corporation Tax or any other notices from HMRC in regards to your Limited company. It may be best discussing options with them on how to move forward, especially if you have registered for PAYE or VAT as you may need to deregister.
