Why is a corporation required to file a Corporations Information Act Annual Return?

The Annual Return is a mandatory filing requirement for all federal and provincial corporations. Annual returns help to ensure the corporation’s information is up to date on the corporate Public Record.

Company Formations offers fast & easy Annual Return Online Filing. The annual return must be filed within the prescribed dates and must be accompanied by the government filing fee. The dates and fees vary depending on the jurisdiction.

Company Formations will send the annual return directly to the government department or agency on your behalf.

If a corporation fails to file an annual return within the prescribed delay, a penalty fee may be imposed. If a corporation repeatedly fails to file its annual returns (typically for 2 consecutive years), the government department or agency may remove the corporation from the government records. If a corporation has been struck from government records, the corporation may be affected in a variety of ways. To re-register the corporation must typically bring its annual filings up to date and pay a penalty fee.
