When you incorporated your company, you provided us with an email address for communication. We use this to communicate important information about your company, including sending reminders when your company's annual return is due. If you provided a mobile phone number, we’ll also send txt reminders to your mobile phone.
How to receive annual return reminders
To help you meet your annual return deadline, we send reminders during the month your return is due.
We send email reminders
We send email reminders to the address for communication for your company. We also send an email reminder to any person with confirmed authority to act for your company.
We also send txt reminders
If you’ve provided a mobile phone number as a contact number for your company, we’ll send you a txt reminder. We’ll also send a txt reminder to any person with confirmed authority to act for your company.
When reminders are sent
A reminder is sent on the first working day of the month that your annual return is due.
For example, if your annual return is due during the month of August, we send a reminder on 1 August (or the next working day).
If you haven't filed your annual return by the third week of the month it's due, we send you a second reminder.
If you haven't filed your annual return by the last working day of the month it's due, we send a third and final reminder.
If your annual return becomes overdue, you must complete it as quickly as possible to prevent your company being removed from the Companies Register.
