2019 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).

Restoration documents and objections to strike-off (H16/H17 forms) can be forwarded to the Bloom House Office for registration. Please forward signature pages (annual returns for dissolved companies) directly to: Enforcement Section, CRO, Bloom House, Gloucester Place Lower, Dublin 1  with regards to a restoration application. This will speed up the registration process. 

Form B1X can only be used for the revision of financial statements or the revision of the directors report. Form B1X cannot be used to amend an auditors report that was submitted on an earlier return. Form B1X has been revised to make this clearer for presenters. Chapter 16 Part 6 Companies Act 2014 does not provide for the amendment of an incorrect auditors report.

The 2018 Annual Report for the Companies Registration Office (CRO) is now available from the CRO Corporate Publications page.
The 2018 Annual Report for the Registry of Friendly Societies (RFS) is now available from the RFS Corporate Publications webpage.


The CRO are in the process of a digital transformation of all the registers under its remit.

Phase 1 with the Registry of Friendly Societies is complete. We are now moving to digitalising the Limited Partnerships Register. While the applications will remain paper based for the time being, it will be possible or order copies of documents online. Unfortunately, for a short period until the other registers are complete it will not be possible to pay for Limited Partnership applications (LP1, LP2, LP3, LP4, P1) using CRO customer account.

These documents should be paid for by cheque. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will update customers as soon as possible regarding other payment methods.
