Number of employees tag requirement from Companies House
 

Update: If your average number of employees is zero it might be showing as '-' rather than 0. If so you need to change the format on this cell by by right clicking on the cell and selecting 'Format cells' then selecting the 'Number' tab and change the setting from 'Custom' to 'Number' so that it appears as 0.

 

From 13 October 2020, Companies House require 'Average number of employees' to be a mandatory item tagged in iXBRL accounts.

The latest templates in VT Final Accounts (April 2020 and June 2020 versions) automatically include 'Average number of employees' as a mandatory tag.

If you are using an older template please refer to guidance here to ensure that the iXBRL file is correctly tagged.
