What Are Company Annual Returns?

The law dictates that every registered company in Kenya should file annual returns with the registrar of companies. The main aim of these returns is to show the current status of the company. The annual returns highlight the following concerning the said company.

  • The structure of the company
  • The shareholding
  • Division of shares
  • Company’s Nominal capital
  • Names and addresses of the directors and shareholders in the company.
  • The current registered office of the company
  • And details of the company secretary


Process of How to File Annual Returns for a Company in Kenya

How to Fill the Annual Return Form

Before you think of filling this form which has about ten pages, make sure you have the company’s incorporation certificate. You must have the director’s information such as names, addresses, and dates of birth. Open the Microsoft Word downloaded file. It is best not to alter the structures of the table.

Finally for that page indicate the plot number, building name, and street where the company runs its operations.
  3. Go to page four and type in the town, postal address and postal code of the company. Then provide the details of the directors on part 2.
