The Registrar of Companies has issued a reminder that the deadline for the waiver of penalties for late filing of annual returns is Tuesday, April 30, 2019.
Last November, the Ministry of Finance, Economic Affairs and Investment had granted approval for the extension under Section 15A (2) of the Companies Act, Cap. 308 for domestic companies, and Section 343 (2A) for external companies.
Outstanding returns should be filed with the Registrar of Companies no later than Tuesday, April 30; failing to comply shall result in the waived penalties becoming payable forthwith to the Registrar of Companies.
There shall be strict adherence to the enforcement of any relevant penalty on companies that fail to regularize their affairs by Tuesday, April 30.
