A guide to Micro-Entity statutory accounts format

While most companies now have to give more info on their abbreviated accounts to the Companies House, many companies can qualify to submit accounts as a micro-entity.

According to the gov.uk, Micro-entities are very small companies. Your company will be a micro-entity if it has any 2 of the following:

  • a turnover of £632,000 or less
  • £316,000 or less on its balance sheet
  • 10 employees or fewer

If your company is a micro-entity, you can:

  • prepare simpler accounts that meet statutory minimum requirements
  • send only your balance sheet with less information to Companies House
  • benefit from the same exemptions available to small companies

1. Cover

2. Balance Sheet

The Balance Sheet is required for both Full and Abbreviated Accounts and must be signed by the Director.

3. Notes

No further Notes are required for Companies House submission.
