Producing compliant dormant company and micro-entity accounts is easy and efficient in Inform Direct.

The streamlined approach that Inform Direct applies to all filings means that the preparation and filing of micro-entity or dormant company accounts need no longer be a daunting task. And, if you are unfamiliar with preparing company accounts, lots of help is available at each step.

You can produce draft accounts if you wish, revisiting to make any amendments before submitting the final accounts electronically to Companies House. You’ll receive immediate confirmation of their safe delivery and an email notifying you of their approval as soon as this is received.

Inform Direct helps you to get company accounts right first time.


Companies House reject almost 100,000 sets of accounts every year. The following common errors and omissions account for the majority of rejections:

  • incorrect or absent company name or number;
  • authorising signatory missing from the balance sheet;
  • incorrect or absent balance sheet date;
  • incorrect statements on the balance sheet;
  • missing figures on the balance sheet;
  • balance sheet doesn’t balance.


Our intelligent software has built-in checks that prevent all these errors. We help you to get it right first time.
