A dormant company in the UK is defined as a company that has never had any accounting transactions since incorporation
There is no time limit on a company remaining dormant however; the company must still comply with the statutory reporting requirements required of a normal active company. The fact that the company is not trading does not dilute the directors’ responsibilities for running the company.

A dormant company should not be confused with a non-trading company. A company that is non-trading (i.e. not carrying out any business) may nevertheless be involved in other day to day financial transactions. For example, costs such as rent, wages, bank charges or legal fees must be reflected in the company’s accounting records and if this is the case, then even if non-trading, the company will not be considered a dormant company. Remember that a company will only be considered dormant by Companies House if it has never had any accounting transactions during its existence.
As the name suggest, trading accounts means that the company has traded during the financial year.
The company must still comply with the statutory reporting requirements required of a normal active company. They need to submit their financial statements and Corporation Tax returns to Companies House and HMRC.
