Annual returns are the most basic legal requirement for a registered company. As per Section 33 of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 (as amended) and Section 30 of the Companies Regulations 2011: 

“Every company must file an annual return in the prescribed form with the prescribed fee, and within the prescribed period after the end of the anniversary of the date of its incorporation...”   

However, this is easier said than done when building a fast-growing accounting firm. With more staff to train, clients to manage and, ultimately, work to get done – scaling your company secretarial offering is critical to the success of your business.   

That is why we’ve made filing annual returns twice-as-fast and easier than ever before. With an 82% filed-on-time rate and over 8,000 annual returns filed in the last year, InfoDocs is the ultimate tool for keeping your annual returns up to date while growing your firm. 

Join Joshua Alexandre, Founder and CEO of InfoDocs, as he interviews Cheri Kok, Company Secretarial Specialist at BVSA (aka “the most productive company secretary we know”), on 8 October from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. as they discuss all things annual returns, compliance checklists, and more (including a Q&A where they answer your questions).
