Companies House does not hold information on the number of companies that had their financial statements rejected. However, the table below shows the number of financial statements that were rejected by Companies House as unsuitable for filing in the periods requested. These figures are not reflective of the number of companies which have had financial statements rejected, as it is possible that more than one set of financial statements were rejected for individual companies within the year in question’
