New Customer Portal in the Registry of Friendly Societies

 

The Registry of Friendly Societies (RFS) is responsible for the efficient and effective registration and general regulation of over 1,000 Friendly Societies, Industrial and Provident Societies and Trade Unions in Ireland.

The RFS first foray into an online presence occurred in 2012 so, the launch this month of a new customer portal is a timely and welcome enhancement to all users.  The portal will enable a substantial level of business to be carried out online such as:

  • creating a new entity; and
  • filing Annual Return and amendments.

Apart from the ease of online filing, Users will be able to avail of reduced fees for online filings.  Quite how valuable the reduction of fees will be to Users is questionable given the total average annual filing fees paid to the RFS appears to hover around €46,000 to €50,000 per annum.  As my Grandmother always said “Every mickle makes a muckle” so, improving filing capabilities whilst also providing for some cost savings can only be a good thing.
