What is an annual return?

Some people confuse an annual tax return & an annual company return.

A Companies Office annual return is not a tax return. All companies are required by the Companies Act 1993 to file an annual return with the Companies Office regardless of whether or not they are trading.

If an annual return is not filed by the due date, the company risks being removed from the register as the Registrar may be satisfied that the company has ceased to carry on business.

An annual tax return, companies must prepare financial accounts that meet IRD minimum financial reporting requirements. These thresholds apply to all companies in a group where the parent company is incorporated in New Zealand regardless of whether or not they are trading.
