2020 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).

Welcome to the Companies Registration Office E-Zine

*** Update to filing of Annual Returns ****

The Registrar of Companies has decided that all annual returns due to be filed
by any Company now and up to 30th June 2020 will be deemed to have been filed on time
if all elements of the annual return are completed and filed by that date.

If you are due to complete your annual returnfiling at any time up to 30th June
your annual return will be deemed to have been filed on time if you capture
the B1 form, upload your financial statements, pay the fee and submit it online and
then deliver the signature page as normal to the CRO by that date.  You may also complete
the filing as normal using Revenue Online Services (ROS) signatures instead of a signature page.
