The Registrar of Companies has decided to discontinue the Fast Track facility for company restorations. The Fast Track facility was introduced to deal with a backlog in restoration applications. This backlog in restoration cases no longer exists and the CRO is introducing a new customer service target whereby companies will be restored within 5 working days of receipt of correctly completed applications, including all outstanding annual returns.

Since 1st June 2017 efiling has been extended to facilitate the filing of multiple annual returns (B1s). Once a H1 application form (Restoration of Company on application to Registrar) has been filed within the statutory timeframe of 12 months after dissolution, outstanding annual returns can be efiled up to 15 months after the date of dissolution.

The Fast Track facility is discontinued with effect from 1st August 2017.
