Q: Why do I need to pay an Annual Return Fee?

“CIPC requests that ALL South African CC’s and PTY’s pay Annual Return Fees every 12 months.  When submitting your Annual Returns, CIPC will update your CC / PTY’s contact details as well.

Q: How much will it cost to submit my Annual Return(s) correctly?

“Your CC’s or Company’s total invoice for Annual Returns consists of two fees:
