All companies are required to submit an annual information return with CIPC as of the 1st of May 2005.

This return needs to be submitted to CIPC within the month of incorporation of the Company on an annual basis.  This return provides the Registrar with the necessary information to ascertain that the company is still in business and all information provided by the Company is up to date and still valid.


A company (PTY or CC) may incur penalties if their return is submitted late and if not submitted at all, CIPC reserves the right to de-registered the Company or Close Corporation.
Penalties are only added if the company is non-compliant.
Entities with a public interest score of 350+ are required to submit AFS and must be supplied to us in iXBRL format.


3 – 5 Business Days from receipt of all the requested documentation and provided no additional documentation is requested by CIPC.


All final and original documentation is issued by CIPC in electronic format.  Following completion, all final and original documents are emailed to the client.


Order Prices are based on returns being submitted within their due date.  An additional fee will be charged where CIPC returns are late or overdue to bring the client into good standing with CIPC
