You may be aware that the Registrar of Companies is now automating its system of maintaining company records in an exercise called link/claim a business.

As a result of this, it is no longer possible to file company returns manually.  They must be filed online using the new system.

In order to be able to file online, registered companies and businesses must be linked to the platform via E-Citizen so that the Registrar can verify their details.

If your company or business is not linked, it will not be able to file by the deadline and leave it and its directors open to substantial penalties of 200,000/- for the company and for each director.

It is clearly essential that to avoid these penalties, you ensure that your company or business is linked before the end of June and because of the volume of businesses being registered, the process can take some time.  If you need some assistance with this, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We can provide this service for 30,000/- plus VAT for each company or business.
