CRO Update Regarding Filing of Annual Returns with Annual Return Dates falling on or after 30 September 2020
The Registrar of Companies has decided to extend the filing deadline for companies with an Annual Return Date falling on 30 September 2020 or later.
Any company with an Annual Return Date of 30 September 2020 or later will be deemed to have filed on time if all elements of the annual return are completed and filed by 26 February 2021.
However, entities are encouraged to file as normal during this period if in a position to do so.
This update does not apply to companies with earlier Annual Return Dates.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, section 6 of the Companies (Miscellaneous Provisions) (COVID-19) Act 2020 (the “2020 Act”) allows a Company to opt to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on a date that is not later than 31st December 2020. Should a Company opt to hold its AGM on a date up to and including the 31st December 2020 then in a small number of exceptional cases the company may not be in a position to file its Annual Return until after the date the AGM is held. In those rare and exceptional circumstances the company will be afforded additional time to file its annual returns up to the 26th February 2021. If the company opts to hold its AGM pursuant to section 6 of the 2020 Act and as outlined in this note, then the company must notify the CRO in writing in order to avail of the additional time to file its annual return. Please email email@example.com with the relevant details.
