What is a confirmation statement review period?

Confirmation statements and review periods

All UK limited companies need to submit a confirmation statement every 12 months. The purpose of this is to confirm the information held by Companies House is correct.

In addition to verifying the company address, Directors, and PSC's, the confirmation statement is also required by the Companies Act to include:

  • their name as it appears in the company's register of members;
  • the number of shares of each class held by each shareholder;
  • the number of shares of each class transferred during the review period by and to each shareholders at that time; and
  • the dates of registration of these transfers.
Each confirmation statement will start a new 12 month review period with a new statement needing to be submitted before this period ends.

Confirmation statements are typically sent once a year on the anniversary of the companies incorporation, although a statement can be submitted at any point within the review period up to a maximum of once a day.
