2014 Ezine Newsletter

Email Newsletter
The CRO newsletter facility allows subscribers to receive regular news updates from the office by email. These emails are delivered in text format:

1. CRO E-Zine
This is an electronic bulletin published once a month. It informs all subscribers of the current developments within the Office and also notifies subscribers of future events.

2. Interim Messages
The email newsletter service is effectively split in two (though only one subscriber list is used). Every subscriber receives delivery of the CRO E-Zine once every month. In the interim subscribers may receive further updates if necessary from the Office (urgent or time sensitive messages).


The Companies Act 1963-2013 will shortly be replaced by a new Companies Act.  The legislation is currently passing through the Oireachtas. It is expected to be enacted before the end of 2014 and commenced in 2015 on a date yet to be decided.

On foot of this CRO has added an area to the website, this tab being called Companies Bill.

 We will be adding further information to highlight some of the main changes that have been proposed. We will inform you of further developments through the website and ezines.


e-DAY - 19 SEPTEMBER 2014

The CRO will continue to accept cheques after 19 September 2014.

The approach of the CRO to 'e-Day' is to encourage customers to migrate from cheque usage to payment by electronic means and to build on the impetus of ‘e-Day’ with a view to phasing out handling cheques and other paper forms of payment entirely from 2016 on (see CRO's September Newsletter)


The CRO requests all customers who currently pay by cheque to begin the process of moving away from cheques and other paper forms of payment by:

(a) familiarising yourselves with CRO’s electronic methods of payment, and

(b) making whatever changes in procedures are necessary within your firm/company to allow you to discontinue using cheques and other paper forms of payment from 19 September 2014, or as soon as possible thereafter.



The Companies Registration Office will be one of 19 agencies who will be at the Ploughing Championships in Stradbally, Co. Laois from 23rd to 25th September, 2014. These agencies will be together in a dedicated Taking Care of Business Marquee so that all the information you need about regulation and business supports will be right there in the one place. This is a great opportunity for informal dialogue, questions and answers and getting the information you need to run your business more effectively.
