Dormant company annual filing requirements: a dormant company is a registered private company that has no financial transactions, other than the issue of share capital on incorporation. Due to the lack of financial transactions, it is easy to assume that a dormant company has no annual filing requirements. However, its filing requirements are not dissimilar to those of trading entities. The main filing requirements for non-trading companies are as follows: -
