A company is dormant if it has no significant accounting transactions during the accounting period. A significant accounting transaction is one which the company must enter in its accounting records. All companies formed at UK Companies House are initially classified as dormant. However, you may begin trading at any time provided you complete the CT41G form within 3 months of beginning trading. HMRC will send you a CT41G form within 4 weeks of your company incorporation.
