If Companies House are made aware of a company whose trading disclosures do not comply with Companies Act requirements, they will contact the company concerned to clarify the position. If necessary, they will advise the company that it is committing an offence and request that it updates any non-compliant information.

The primary aim is to seek compliance. If the company refuses to comply, Companies House will consider taking prosecution action as a last resort.
