British Columbia Annual Return Online Filing

File Now Your British Columbia Annual Return

Introducing the British Columbia Annual Return Online Filing Service, an essential requirement for all corporations governed by the British Columbia Business Corporations Act. Annually, every corporation must submit an annual return to the British Columbia Corporate Registry Office.

Filing is mandatory for corporations maintaining an “active” legal status with the British Columbia Corporate Registry Office, ensuring they are neither dissolved, discontinued, nor amalgamated with another entity. Distinct from your income tax return, this filing is a corporate law obligation, entirely independent of any obligations with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

The deadline for annual return submission falls within 60 days following the corporation’s anniversary date—marking the incorporation, amalgamation, or continuation under the British Columbia Business Corporation Act. Note that you do not file for the year of incorporation, amalgamation, or continuation.

Failure to file annual returns may result in the dissolution of your corporation. The British Columbia Corporate Registry Office diligently maintains current corporate information. Non-compliance suggests non-operation, prompting the office to initiate dissolution proceedings, legally terminating the corporation’s existence. This dissolution can carry severe consequences, impeding the corporation’s legal capacity to conduct business.

For a comprehensive service fee of $166.28, our BC Annual Return package covers all government fees, service charges, preparation of corporate annual minutes, and applicable taxes. Secure the continued existence and legal standing of your corporation by meeting this essential obligation promptly.
