RVN Chartered Accountants Incorporated



Submission of annual returns to the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission:

Every year, companies and closed corporations must submit their annual returns to the Companies and Intellectual Properties Commission (CIPC) and make the necessary payment to ensure business legal compliance. We handle this process for our clients, including the submission of their financial information. If a company is required to have their annual financial statements audited, they must submit a Financial Accountability Supplement (FAS) or their annual financial statements. We take care of converting the financial statements into the required iXBRL format and submitting them to the CIPC.

Submission of annual statutory compliance questionnaires to CIPC:

With an integrated and holistic approach, RVN Empowerment provides customised, Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment solutions, enabling clients to achieve their transformation goals. We believe that successful B-BBEE implementation should be driven by a need to achieve strategic objectives, competitive advantage, and business growth, not merely legal compliance.
