Default submitting abbreviated accounts

hi,

anyone have any advice on submitting abbreviated accounts? what do I need to
send to Companies House?

I have produced a balance sheet and profit and loss sheet for the year in
question, do I just send that to them?

An accountant wants to charge me over 1000 for submitting the accounts, but
also wants to audit them.
I don't have money for this as the company makes no money and I am a
student.


thanks

sounds over the top quote and no reason for audit assuming you meet
exemption criteria. Your best of having an accountant for many reasons. I
know we bill small companies less than that, especially if reliable records
are in place. Suggest another quote! Where you based?

I would have thought that any accounts submitted must be audited - you
could come up with any figures if this was not the case.

I am no expert but would think that this is a condition of any limited
company.

Sounds like on size limits you dont need audit so unless your into financial
services I think you'd be safe from an audit. I'm sure if you ring around
local firms and explain situation you'll find one that will get accounts
sorted and desolve the company for well under 1000. I'm not sure whether
you can submit accounts yourself without a qualified accountant but sure
someone will be along to let you know that one.

Not any more. The threshold is t/o of about 5m. There are exceptions
such as FSA regulated companies but even that is changing form next
year.

You dont need an audit.

The info needed is quite limited but there are some other thngs like
directors details etc., An Acct wold do just that few a few hundred
quid.

You don't need a qualified accountant but you should use someone who
does it all the time otherwise they would not be able to do it
properly.

I would charge around 400 pounds for taking fully reconciled draft
accounts and putting them into full and abbreviated statutory accounts
and a tax return.

You don't need to submit a profit and loss account, but you do need some
notes to the accounts, and a director's report.
