  • 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.
  • The Annual Return should include the PPSN of each Director.
  • Where a Director does not have a PPSN, they must instead provide a VIN (Verified Identity Number).
  • A VIN can be applied by submitting a notorised VIF Form in advance with the Companies Registration Office. The turnaround for registering notorised VIF Forms is approximately one week.  
  • Annual Returns without either a PPSN or VIN number will be rejected.
