Every corporation incorporated under the Alberta Business Corporations Act, Small businesses to large corporations, are required to file an Annual Return to maintain their status as a legal entity.

NOTE: This is not to be confused with the Corporate Tax Return.

Annual Returns

  • Corporations must submit an Annual Return each year
  • The Annual Return contains information about the address of the corporation, shareholders, officers and directors
  • If the annual return is not filed, the organization will eventually be dissolved or its registration will be cancelled and you will need to revive the corporation
  • Alberta corporations must provide updates within 15 days when the corporation changes its registered office, mailing address, or directors
