An annual return is not a financial document — it's a record of publicly available information about a company that appears on the Companies Register. That information, which includes the company address and details of directors and shareholders, must be updated each year through an annual return.
The Annual Return for a company will need to be filed every 12 months. The company will be allocated a month which is usually the month of incorporation, the month allocated is when your annual return will be due each year.
