Filing your annual return
All companies are required by the Companies Act 1993 to file an annual return with the Companies Office regardless of whether or not they are trading.
If an annual return is not filed by the due date, the company risks being removed from the register as the Registrar may be satisfied that the company has ceased to carry on business.
