Companies Registration Office Compliance

Introduction – The Function of the Companies Registration Office
The Companies Registration Office is the Appropriate Body responsible for the Incorporation of New Companies & the Registration of New Business Names in the Republic of Ireland.
It is a legal requirement that every company whether trading or not is obliged to file an Annual Return form (B1) & Financial Accounts every calendar year following the conclusion of the Financial Statements.
The date to which the return must be submitted is determined by the Company’s Annual Return Date which is normally 9 months following the Financial Statement Year End.

• Balance sheet total does not exceed €4.4m
• Turnover does not exceed €8.8m
