Nationwide Barristers have specialist expertise in representing directors facing prosecution for failing to file company accounts. The Companies Act 2006 provides that directors must deliver accounts and reports for each financial year to Companies House. You may face a fine or possible disqualification as a company director if you are convicted of an offence under the Act. Nationwide Barristers will provide expert advice regarding the prospects of successfully defending such a prosecution.
You may be entitled to a defence if you can demonstrate that you have taken reasonable steps. Such circumstances are fact specific and early advice can help prevent prosecutions by Companies House.
If you have been summoned to attend the magistrates court we can represent you directly without the need for a solicitor. Please complete our online enquiry form for a free initial consultation.
We also offer expert advice regarding a number of regulatory offences.
