Financial Year-end change

Do you need to change the Financial Year-end of your Company? We will change this date for you at CIPC.

Each Company has a Financial Year-end. This date is indicated on the Company’s Registration Documentation at CIPC. It is normally FEBRUARY as SARS’s year-end falls on February month and requires all companies to submit returns by that date. May your Company’s Accounting Officer / Auditor / Directors request that this date needs to change, a Financial Year-end Amendment can be done which will bring about this change on the Company’s Registration Documentation at CIPC. We provide this Amendment service.



(1) Busy SARS Year-end

A February month is normally very busy. Also, the queues at SARS are massive due to the fact that it’s year-end for most companies. In some industries, for example farming, it is much better to register for a different month.

(2) Bookkeeping simplicity

In case a Company’s bookkeeping / structures change, it will be very advantageous to change a Company’s financial Year-end date. A Company can then easily setup the year’s statements.



  • The Financial Year-end of a Company may not have been changed during the past financial year.
