Company Law

Don Ryan & Co. Solicitors provides an extensive service to clients and their accountants in applications to the District Court under section 343 of the Companies Act 2014.

With effect from June 1st 2015, applications for an extension of time to file an annual return may be made to the local District Court where the client’s companies registered offices are located.

As a result, the consequences for a company failing to file an annual return include:

  • The imposition of the late filing penalty

  • Prosecution of the company and/or its directors

  • The loss of the audit exemption

  • The possible involuntary strike-off and dissolution of the company

Due to our previous experience, we at Don Ryan & Co. Solicitors have had a 100% success rate with our applications on behalf of clients for these extensions of time to file annual returns with the Companies Registration Office (CRO) and would be delighted to assist you in this regard. Please contact the office for more information.
