Singapore Company Annual General Meeting and Annual Return
All locally-incorporated companies are required to hold their Annual General Meeting (AGM) and file their Annual Returns under S175, S197 and S201 of the Companies Act. At the AGM, directors shall present a true and fair view of the company’s accounts to their shareholders.
It is the responsibility of the company officer with the required level of expertise for preparation of such accounts. The appointed officer of the company shall file the Annual Returns online. We, ERI Organization, a professional registered filing agent, will file the Annual Return on behalf of the company. As the appointed company secretary, we will ensure that your company is to comply with the following statutory requirement:
