We offer Company
We offer comprehensive company secretarial service to all of our clients. Bearing in mind that a company’s financial statements are downloadable off the CRO website we will advise you in a proactive manner on how best to keep your information confidential. A company can incur financial penalties for filing their annual return late and it can also result in the loss of audit exemption for the company which clearly increases the cost burden on business.
We work closely with all of our companies and their officers to ensure that they meet the strict statutory obligations imposed by the Companies Act 2014 and the Companies Accounting Act 2017 and that all of their corporate affairs are in good standing with the Companies Registration Office

What is an Annual Return?
An annual return (Form B1) is a document setting out certain prescribed company information which is required to be delivered by an Irish company, whether trading or not, to the Companies Registration Office (CRO) at least once in every calendar year.
All Irish companies are obliged to file an annual return with the CRO. The company’s first annual return will be due 6 months from the date of incorporation and there is no requirement to file financial statements with the first annual return.
The Annual Return Date (ARD) of the company can be a maximum of 9 months after the financial year end of the company. The company has 56 days from its ARD date to have all of the annual return documentation filed with the CRO.
Using software packages to manage the process our qualified accountants will prepare and file your annual return for you correctly and on time. This will reduce your compliance burden and ensure that important deadlines are met. It will result in the company avoiding late filing fees and the loss of the entitlement to claim audit exemption for two years.
