When do you need to file financial statements?

Financial statements should be filed with the Registrar after they’ve been submitted to and approved by the members of the society at a general meeting e.g. at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

The deadline for filing is the end of the month after the AGM. For example, if the AGM month is July, the financial statements are due to be filed before 31 August.


How will you know when to file?

The Registrar will send a reminder letter to your society around the time of your AGM advising when the financial statements are next due to be filed. This reminder is sent to the address for communication provided to the Registrar. A final reminder is sent to the registered office address.

Ultimately the society’s officers are responsible for ensuring that filing obligations are met. Reminders are sent as a courtesy to help societies to comply on time with their reporting obligations.

Note | You should check that the society’s contact details are up to date on the Register so reminders are sent to the correct address. You can update these details using our online service.


What should you do if you're outside the filing deadline?

We understand that circumstances can sometimes mean you can’t file your financial statements on time. We now have an online service for requesting a filing extension.
