It’s important to check that company information is updated and correct before preparing the Annual Return Documents and filing the Annual Return from CAS 360 to ACRA.
From the Main Toolbar, go to Company
Select the Company from the list
Go through the information for each tab and ensure that they are correct and up-to-date before the Annual Return filing.
Check and confirm Company Dates & Company Status in the General Details tab.
For registered companies that have existing records with ACRA, ensure that the following information is accurately recorded in the Company Dates fields:
- Incorporation Date
- Annual Return Due Date (it has to be based in the current calendar year)
- Financial Year-End Date
- Annual Return Last Filed
For newly incorporated companies, it is not required to indicate the Annual Return Last Filed. This will only be applicable in the second year of filing.
You are also able to use CAS 360 to calculate the next AGM Date and the Annual Return Due Date.
The Company Status will determine the Annual Return Data Questionnaire and the type of Annual Return text paragraphs that will appear in your Annual Return documents. It is important to update if there are any changes in the company status, type, class, and subclass.
When preparing the Annual Return, the data questionnaire will appear based on the Company Status information given.
The Register of Registrable Controllers and Nominee Directors declaration text will appear on the Annual Return based on the Location of Registers recorded in CAS 360.
To add or edit addresses for the Registerable Controllers & Nominee Directors Registers Addresses, select the company and navigate to the Addresses tab.
Select New Address + | Location of Registers Kept.
Type the address into the New Address field.
Switch on “Yes” for Registrable Controllers Register Address and Nominee Directors Register Address.
If your company is required to maintain a Register of Registrable Controllers, toggle on Required to maintain Registrable Controllers Register in the Shareholders tab.
Record an Auditor from within the Relationships tab of your selected company.
