The Purpose of the annual return ?

In keeping with legislation, each close corporation/company is compelled in terms of the Act to lodge an Annual return once a year. The Registrar needs to determine two things:

- Whether a registered organisation is still in business

- Confirmation that the Registrar is in possession of the latest information of the close corporation/company.

What will happen if I fail to lodgement the close corporation's/company's Annual Return ?

Should a close corporation/company fail to lodge and pay for its Annual Returns for a period of more than 6 months, the Registrar may conclude that the close corporation/company is no longer conducting business and may refer it to be deregistered
