The majority of companies in Ireland have an Annual Return Date of 30th September so to avoid getting caught out start preparing now.


  • Check status of your company’s filing in the Companies Registration Office is correct

  • Check if any of the directors have changed their personal details. The two most common changes are where directors have changed home address or their list of directorships are not current.

  • When a director moves home address a statutory form must be filed noting the new address and effective date of change.

  • The list of directorships should include all directorships held worldwide, past and present, within past 5 years.

  • Have the Financial Statements ready for filing.

  • Confirm the designated signatories for the Annual Return will be available to sign when required, i.e. a specific named Director and the Company Secretary.


Taking the above steps now can help to ensure there are no delays when it comes to filing the Annual Return.


One last thing – docu-signatures are not permitted on the Annual Return – you have been warned!
