Updated filing rules for private Unlimited Companies (ULCs) that have limited liability subsidiaries (regardless of where those subsidiaries are registered) were introduced for financial reporting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2022.
Those ULCs are now required to file financial statements with the CRO.
Previously, ULCs were only required to file financial statements with the CRO if: (i) they were a subsidiary of a limited liability undertaking, or (ii) all the shares in the ULC are held directly or indirectly by a limited liability undertaking. The filing requirements have now been extended to include ULCs, referred to as “designated ULCs”, that were a holding company of a limited liability undertaking during the financial year commencing on or after 1 January 2022.
ULCs should examine their group structure to determine if the ULC now falls within the definition of a designated ULC and is subject to the new filing rules.
