1 September 2008
The Purpose of the annual return ?
In keeping with legislation, each close corporation ia compelled in terms of the Act to lodge an Annual return once a year. The Registrar of companies needs to determine two things:

  • Whether a registered organisation in still in business
  • Confirmation that the Registrar is in possession of the latest information of the company.
  • What will happen if I fail to lodgement the close corporation/company’s Annual Return ?
    Should a close corporation/company’s fail to lodge and pay for its Annual Returns for a period of more than 6 months, the Registrar may conclude that the close corporation/company’s is no longer conducting business and may refer it to be deregistered
