On average, the Companies Registration Office receives 200,000 Annual Returns (form B1) of which 26,000 (15.3%) are sent back to the presenter/company. This is a very high error rate and creates extra work for all concerned. Listed below is a breakdown of the most common reasons for sending back Annual Returns and possible solutions to prevent or reduce the number of send backs.
Annual returns must be paid for online since June 2017. It is not possible to pay using a cheque and it is not possible to complete a paper form B1 either.
Presenters can open a CRO Customer Account by downloading a form a/c1 or by registering online. They can also make deposits to their account using Services on the website www.cro.ie.
