From 1 June 2017, it will be mandatory to file with the Companies Registration Office (CRO) the following forms electronically:
- B1- Annual Return (including financial statements and electronic payment)
- B2- Change of registered office
- B10- Change of Director and/or Secretary or in their particulars
- B73- Nomination of a new annual return date
The signature page for the Form B1 must be printed, signed by the officers of the company and delivered to the CRO.
Paper forms and paper financial statements filed after 1 June 2017 will be returned and if this results in the Annual Return being late, the company will be subject to financial penalties and will lose audit exemption if it is exempt.
Our clients will not need to worry as we will continue to take care of all matters relating to the filing of forms with the CRO when instructed.
