The penalties will be doubled if a company files its accounts late in 2 successive financial years beginning on or after 6 April 2008. This means that if a private company has an accounting reference date of 30 September and the accounts for the period ending 30 September 2009 were delivered late, and you delivered accounts for the subsequent period ending 30 September 2010 late, then you would incur a £300 late filing penalty.
