All companies and close corporations are required by law to file their annual returns with CIPC every year. CIPC uses this information to ensure that it is in possession of the latest information of the company or close corporation and to determine whether the company or close corporation is conducting business activities.
Did you know?
- All companies are required by law to file their returns with CIPC every year.

- If annual returns are not filed, CIPC will assume your company is inactive and deregister it to remove it from its active records.
- Our turnaround time for filing a company’s annual return is 1-2 days, after receiving proof of payment, but may be subject to delays from CIPC.
