How will I know when to file?

CIPC does provide e-mail / sms reminders to directors (for companies) and members (for close corporations) PROVIDED that correct contact details have been provided to the CIPC when registering the business or updating its detail. If CIPC does not have the correct information, reminders cannot be issued. To confirm the status with annual return filings an AR Fee Calculation can be done via ( or by utilising the CIPC USSD functionality. (*120*2472#)
