Information: CIPC Annual Return Deadline

The CIPC annual return deadline for the submission is the month in which the specific company has been registered. It is very important that this annual return deadline gets done on time.

If CIPC do not receive this on time, they can assume that your company be inactive and deregister it. What typically happens. Soon after one fails to submit the CIPC annual return, the note on the system will be that the company is in "deregistration process". At this stage one can still submit the annual returns, pay some penalties, and change the status back to 'in business".

Information: Name Reservation

Before one register a new company, you can first do a name reservation with CIPC to see if your chosen name is available. We always suggest to our clients to provide us with about 5 preferred names, in order of which you one prefer most, from 1 -5. The process of the CIPC name reservation usually takes about 1 - 3 days, but all depends on the CIPC workload. Once your specific name has been reserved, we can proceed with your registration of your company.

Information: Annual Return Fees

The CIPC annual return fees are determined by the turnover of a company each year. The turnover must be taken from the latest set of financial statements compiled for the company.

It is important to submit your CIPC annual return within 30 days from the registration date of the company each year, failure to comply to this will incur further penalties and even worse lead to the deregistration of your company.
