Q: Why do I need to pay an Annual Return Fee?

“CIPC requests that ALL South African CC’s and PTY Companies pay Annual Return Fees every 12 months. Also, they hereby know that your company is still actively trading and upkeep your information in their database.” Companies who do not submit their annual returns run the risk of being deregistered.

Q: How much will it cost to submit my Annual Return(s) correctly?

“Your CC’s or Company’s total invoice for Annual Returns consists of two fees:

1. Annual Return Fee: The normal outstanding CIPC fees PLUS penalties only if applicable when payment is late;
2. Submission Fee: A once-off admin fee to submit your annual return(s) correctly with the CIPC.”


3 Step Process to file your Annual Returns Successfully

(1) Apply. Upon application you will receive an invoice of R390 which is purely our Submission Fee to file your Annual Returns for 1 year. See the application form above.


(2) Filing: We will file your Company’s Annual Returns using the information you have given us. CIPC will then confirm your Company’s Annual Return Fee, which we will add to your invoice. Here follows the factors making up your final invoice total:

– Years. The number of years for which your Annual Returns are due.
– Turnover. Your Company’s turnover for the given year – if it is more than R1 million for the financial year, CIPC’s fees start to increase.
– Penalties. CIPC will penalise any late Annual Return filings (only if applicable).
– Deregistration. If your Entity is already reflecting as “Deregistration Process” CIPC can deregister your Company / CC at any moment. Annual Returns need to be submitted urgently to prevent final deregistration.

(3) Delivery: We will process the Annual Return Submission and receive your Annual Return Certificate within 2 working days from CIPC. Your Annual Return Certificate will be made available on your Customer Account (we will notify you via email).
