Company Registration – No Deal
If the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 29 March 2019, your business may need to change its company registration if it’s:
- a European entity formed under EU law
- a UK company with an EEA corporate officer
- a UK company involved in a cross border merger
- an EEA company
The UK’s exit from the EU will not affect how most UK companies report information to Companies House.
Please see the following guidance for more information: Changing Your Company Registration – No Deal
Companies House Forms - No Deal
The UK’s exit from the EU will mean some forms used by Companies House will change. If the UK leaves the EU with No Deal, these changes will come into effect at 11pm on 29 March 2019. It is not clear at this stage whether the old forms will still be legally valid or not. We will update further on this when there is more certainty.
The forms affected are those relating to corporate officers with reference to 'EEA’ and ‘non-EEA’, which will be replaced by ‘UK registered limited companies’ and ‘Other corporate bodies and firms’’.
The following forms are provided within TaxCalc
- AP02 Corporate director appointment
- AP04 Appoint a company secretary
- CH02 Change corporate director detail
- CH04 Change of corporate secretary details
- CS01 Confirmation statement
- IN01 Company incorporation
- LLIN01 LLP Incorporation
We will endeavour to reflect the changes in our software as soon as possible after a definitive decision is made for a No Deal scenario. There are additional forms that will also be affected by a No Deal, which we do not currently cater for within the product; these include Overseas Companies, Societas Europea (SE) and European Economic Interest Groupings (EEIGs)

Companies House Forms – Deal
According to Companies House, if a deal on the withdrawal period is reached on or before the 29 March, the transitional period will kick in. This means the existing forms will still be accepted until further notice.
Companies House Forms – Extension agreed
In the event of the UK exit being delayed, the existing forms will also continue to be accepted until further notice.
We will continue to keep you updated, however please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
