This extension is deemed necessary due to ongoing challenges faced on the Company Registration Portal (CRP) and in response to appeals from the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) sector.

All entities registered under the Companies and Allied Matters Act, including Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships, Limited Partnerships, Business Names, and incorporated Trustees, are strongly advised to utilize this extended window to promptly file their annual returns with the Commission.

It is crucial to note that this publication and the granted extension do not impact the striking-off proceedings initiated by the Commission before the announcement on Thursday, 27th November 2023.

Additionally, Companies, their Directors, and Officers are hereby alerted that the Commission will take decisive actions against Directors and Officers of struck-off Companies to recover any outstanding penalties against them.
