An Annual Return is not a Tax Return but it is an annual requirement with the Companies Office.   It is your company's name re-registration which must be filed during a certain month each year.

A limited liability company must file an annual return with Companies Office as required by the Companiers Act 1993.  Every company has a specific filing month and your Company will receive a reminder to file either from the Companies office or if Lowthers is your registered office we will send you a reminder. If the annual return is not filed your company will eventually be struck off the register and cease to exist.

  • You can complete our annual return form and we can file it for you - Please see options below.
