What is Annual Return?

Part of a Company’s annual compliance matters, an annual return is a form submission to ACRA that must be submitted electronically annually to ACRA; and is mandatory for all Singapore registered companies. A fee of $60 is payable to ACRA for every submission.

The annual return holds information of the company such as the name, and particulars of directors, company secretary as well as shareholders and other stakeholders of the company.

The purpose of the annual return is to provide key information to help in informed decision making for the company’s stakeholders. You may appoint Leftright Corporate as your company secretary or engage us in a one-time assistance with annual returns filing.
