Electronic filing and XBRL

Companies House has announcing that by March 2013 the vast majority of its filing services will be digital only. It hopes to mandate electronic submission for all incorporations and for filings of annual returns, accounts and the main company changes for the standard company types and corporate entities.

It will move from the current 30% electronic filing to 98% of the entities on the public register and over 92% of all transactions. For the small number of other corporate entities and transactions it will continue developing electronic services but will not mandate them at this stage.
