FAQ – Annual Returns

When must a company or close corporation file its annual returns?

  • Companies and close corporations are required to file annual returns once a year within a given time period. Companies must file within 30 business days after the anniversary date of its incorporation while close corporations must file within the anniversary month of its incorporation up until the month thereafter.

 

If a company or close corporation has filed its tax returns with SARS, is it still required to file annual returns with CIPC?

  • A clear distinction must be made between an annual return and a tax return. An annual return is a sort of “renewal” and has the purpose to confirm whether CIPC is in possession of the most up to date information of a company or close corporation and that the company or close corporation is still conducting business. A tax return focuses on taxable income of a company or close corporation in order to determine the tax liability of the company or close corporation to the State and is filed with SARS. Compliance with the one does not mean that there is automatic compliance with the other. It is two different processes administered in terms of different legislation by two different government departments. Therefore, even if the tax return has been filed with SARS, the annual return must still be filed with CIPC.

 

Will the annual return replace the filing of other prescribed or statutory forms?

  • An annual return is not an amendment form and therefore, the annual return must be followed by the appropriate statutory form to update the CIPC registers after filing if CIPC is not in possession of the most up to date information. An example of this is if the company address changes, a form CoR21.1 must still be completed and submitted to CIPC.

 

Should all annual returns be up to date before a close corporation converts to a company?

  • If a close corporation converts to a company and the conversion application on Form CoR18.1 is received on or before the last day before the start of the anniversary month of the close corporation, then the annual return for such year does not need to be filed. The reason for this 4 is that no obligation has yet arisen for the filing of the annual return for the current year. All other outstanding years must be brought up to date. For future filing of annual returns, the anniversary month will then be the month within which the close corporation was converted. Should the close corporation file its application for conversion within the month of the anniversary of its incorporation or the month thereafter then all annual returns must be brought up to date including the annual return for the current year.

 

Should all annual returns be up to date if the company converts from one category of company to the other?

  • The company does not have to be up to date with annual returns before converting but it should not be in “deregistration process” or “final deregistered”. If in “deregistration process” the company must first object to deregistration in writing (if not due to annual return non compliance) or file all outstanding annual returns (if due to annual return non compliance) before applying to convert. If the company is final deregistered it must first be re-instated.

CONVERSION FROM A CC TO A PTY LTD

Why your clients should convert their Close Corporations to a Private Company?

Firstly, the principal reason for why close corporations were introduced in 1984 was to cater for the owner-managed type company that did not justify having the same administrative, secretarial and assurance requirements of a medium or large company, including the audit function.

However, with the new Companies Act reporting standards are based not on whether the company is a public or private company in terms of its number of shareholders, but on the concept of public interest exposure, known as the PI Score.

Most Close Corporations are owner-managed and in terms of section 30(2A) of the Companies Act, owner-managed companies do not require to be audited or independently reviewed, unless their public interest score is in excess of 350 points or between 100 and 350 and their financial statements are compiled internally.

On conversion Close Corporations must meet the Solvency and Liquidity Test-a compelling reason to ensure that the company is solvent, liquid and economically viable.

The converted Close Corporation will enjoy the benefits of the Business Judgment Rule of section 76(4), which applies to directors, not members.

All companies (including external companies) and close corporations are required by law to lodge their annual returns with CIPC within a certain period of time every year.
An annual return is a statutory return in terms of the Companies and Close Corporations Acts and therefore MUST be complied with. 
Failure to do so will result in the Commission assuming that the company and/or close corporation is not doing business or is not intending on doing business in the near future. 
Non-compliance with annual returns may lead to deregistration, which has the effect that the juristic personality is withdrawn and the company or close corporation ceases to exist.

We unfortunately cannot assist with filing the annual returns if your company is audited.
