The Companies Registration Office has now amended the Annual Return to include a mandatory requirement to state the company’s size within their annual return. 

As it will no longer be possible to file an Annual Return without stating the company size, It is extremely important that a company is aware of which category of size their company falls into and ensures that this is noted on the Annual Return.

Company Sizes

As a reminder, to qualify as a micro, small or medium size company a company must satisfy two or more of the following conditions;

  Micro Small Medium
Net Turnover Does not exceed €700,000 Does not exceed €12M Does not exceed €40M 
Balance Sheet Does not exceed €350,000 Does not exceed €6M Does not exceed €20M
Average Employees Does not exceed 10  Does not exceed 50 Does not exceed 250

If the company does not meet any of these, then they are deemed to be a large company.
