03/04/11 12:21 PM

An annual return is a snapshot of specific company information on the return date of the company. This is a separate document to the annual accounts.

The annual return includes the following information:

  • the name of the company
  • its registered number
  • the legal return date
  • the principal business activities of the company
  • the type of company it is
  • the registered office address of the company
  • the address where the company keeps certain company records (if not at the registered office)
  • the details of the company secretary – where applicable
  • the details of all the company’s directors

If the company has share capital, the annual return must also contain:

  • A marker to indicate whether the company was a ‘traded company’ at any time during the return period (a traded company is a company with any shares trading on a regulated market).
  • A statement of capital.
  • Details of the shareholders.
