CRO: POSITIVE DEVELOPMENTS IN LIGHT OF COVID-19
As we find ourselves in unprecedented challenging times the CRO is proactively responding by taking steps to facilitate companies in maintaining compliance with their statutory obligations.
On 20 March the CRO advised that it has extended the filing period for all companies with forthcoming annual return filing deadlines up to 30 June 2020. In addition, all Strike Off steps and procedures have been suspended until after 30 June 2020. Please see the full statement and helpful FAQs from the CRO here.
Further, the Irish Region of the ICSA: The Chartered Governance Institute has proactively made a submission to the CRO requesting leniency on the filing of original wet ink signatures on certain CRO forms. See the full submission here.
We will provide updates on further developments in these areas as they occur.
