Notification of Revised Financial Statements
You may select this NOE transaction if you need to re-file your company’s financial statements which have been revised to correct non-compliance(s) with the requirements of the Companies Act and accounting standards. Applying to court to expunge the Annual Return filing (with the original financial statements) is no longer required.
The revised financial statements must meet all requirements (including a new directors’ statement which replaces the original directors’ statement, description of non-compliance, disclosure of the material revisions and amended auditor’s report, if applicable) as set out in the Companies (Revision of Defective Financial Statements or Consolidated Financial Statements or Balance-sheet) Regulations 2018 under section 202A of the Companies Act. Further guidance is available here.
Revised financial statements should be filed within 30 days from date of revision (i.e. the date directors approved the revised financial statements, as reflected in the new directors’ statement). Otherwise, a late filing penalty will be imposed, as explained here.
Revised financial statements should be sent within 30 days from the date of revision to all persons to whom the original financial statements had been sent and all person entitled to receive the notice of general meeting as at the date of revision.
Application fee: $200 (non-refundable).
