BEIS Update – The Impact of COVID-19 on SECR Obligations
There is no change to the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) requirements to include necessary disclosures for company reports relating to reporting periods starting on or after 1 April 2019. That said, businesses are able to apply for an additional 3 months to file accounts with Companies House to help them avoid penalties as they deal with the impact of COVID-19. Any agreed extension would also apply to SECR disclosures as part of annual accounts filing obligations.
Listed companies which need the extra time to complete their audited financial statements, have been given temporary relief which allows an additional 2 months in which to publish them, please see link below.
