Company secretarial

If you operate as a limited company in Ireland then you have to meet certain statutory requirements around reporting to the Companies Registration Office (CRO). In particular, you need to file Form B1, whether you’re trading or not, at least once per year.

Completing all the necessary paperwork and navigating the CRO’s digital systems takes time and energy you could spend on selling, delivery or pursuing business growth. What’s more, if you get your return wrong, or miss the deadlines, you can find yourself hit with some harsh penalties.

Through our company secretarial service, Carlow businesses benefit from our support with these tasks, ensuring compliance and reducing their stress levels.

First, we’ll help you work out your filing obligations. Exemptions sometimes apply, such as for those completing their first annual return, who are exempt from attaching financial statements.

We’ll then manage the preparation and filing of annual returns on your behalf, from start to finish. We’ll also handle reporting to the CRO around the setup of your company, ensuring your records are always up to date. That includes changes of directors and shareholders; changes of address; and amendments to your constitution.

If the CRO has any queries about your annual return we’ll be on hand to talk to them, challenge them and, if necessary, update your return as required within the 14-day limit.
