Hi. Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. I am a company law expert. Were you fined by Companies House for not filing annual accounts and an annual return ? Kind regards AJ
Hi thank you. The fine is against you personally so you cannot avoid it just by dissolving the company. Have Companies House given you details on how to appeal? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Can you confirm the company has never traded or owned any assets? Did you rely on an accountant at all to provide any administration services for the company?
Hi did he accountant not inform you accounts needed to be filed? If you were relying on the accountant to forward this to you and advise you, your best course of action may be to pay the fine and then sue the accountant to recover the money. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards AJ
Hi. Thank you. While it is a criminal offence not to file accounts you are not going to face prison. The sanction really is only a fine - especially where the failure has not caused prejudice to any third party, as the company was not trading. Was part of the online service to inform you of filing dates? Kind regards AJ
Hi. Thank you. No you won't be forced to travel to the Uk worse case scenario they will try and pursue for the debt in Indonesia. You will not suddenly have an arrest warrant against your name for a Companies House fine. Kind regards AJ
