Company account filings

Ensure all your fiscal obligations are being met

Why file company accounts?

All companies are required to file annual accounts wherever their business is registered because the relevant Tax Authority needs to verify that all fiscal obligations have been fulfilled. The idea is that each company must produce a self-assessment tax return and submit it for verification.
