You can apply for an Extension of Time (EOT) of up to 60 days, if you need to delay holding the AGM or filing the annual return.

An EOT application can be made by a company officer (e.g. company secretary or director), or by a professional firm on behalf of your company.

The application fee is $200. Follow the steps below to apply:

Step 1

Go to BizFile+

Step 2

Under File eServices, select Local Company

Step 3

Under Annual Filing, select Extension of Time for AGM/Annual Return

Step 4

Provide the reasons for the application (Listed companies are to attach the reasons for the application, along with any relevant documents, including any comments by SGX on the application)

Step 5

Verify that the transaction is complete. A confirmation email will be sent to the person making the application.

How soon must you apply for EOT?

You must make the EOT application before your AGM/annual return deadline.

ACRA may require up to 14 working days to process the EOT application. This could take a little longer, if further clarifications are needed from you. As such, it is advisable to submit your application and payment more than 14 days in advance.
