2016 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).


From 16 November, CRO will commence issuing digital Certificates of Incorporation to companies who have filed N1, N2 and N3 forms to convert to a new company type or change their name under the transition provisions in the Companies Act 2014.

This is the 4th phase of the roll out of CRO's Digital Certification strategy which was launched in April 2016 with Mortgage Certificates followed by Business Names Certificates in August 2016 and Certificates of Incorporation for new companies in September 2016. 

These digitally certified documents will replace paper certificates where an e-mail address has been provided in the “Presenter Details” section of the N1, N2 or N3 form filed with the CRO. This will facilitate same day receipt of the digital certificate by the presenter as they are e-mailed to customers after 6pm on the date of registration. 

The certificate will be issued as a PDF attachment to the e-mail and contains a coloured banner at the top of the screen to confirm that it has been digitally signed as certified by the CRO. This provides an assurance to the recipient that the document is authentic, has not been tampered with and has been independently verified as sourced in CRO. Presenters can forward the digital certificates directly to third parties by e-mail.

Please note than if you can see on CORE that your N form has been registered but you haven't received an e-mail with the digital certificate attached, you should first check your spam and junk mail folders before contacting the CRO.
Companies that have enterprise level e-mail are advised to "whitelist" @cro.ie domains in order to ensure these e-mails are not blocked. Please also note that the digital certificates are issued after 6pm on the day the document was registered.

Up to 30 November 2016, CRO will issue a papercertificate where no e-mail address has been supplied by the presenter on the N1, N2 or N3 form. However, from 1 December, all certificates of incorporationissued by the CRO as part of the automatic conversion / change of name processwill be digital certificates and no paper certificates will issue after that date.
