Reminder: Seychelles accounting records due

Seychelles entities are reminded of the requirement to submit their bi-annual accounting records to their registered agent (by July and January) each year. 

The official deadline for submitting accounting records for the second half of the year 2022 (July to December) is 31 January 2023.

Furthermore, large entities (with an annual turnover of more than SCR 50 million), as well as non-large non-holding entities, should prepare and submit their Financial Summary using the prescribed template for submission within six months from their financial year end.

As detailed in our original Seychelles update, significant penalties have been introduced in case of non-compliance with statutory obligations by International Business Companies (IBC). Therefore, please ensure that you provide accounting records to Marbury before 30 January 2023 to enable filing with the Seychelles registered agent by the above deadline

Non-compliant entities face delay in obtaining company documents

For any Seychelles entities that have not yet submitted their historical and/or first half 2022 accounting records, these are now overdue.  The Seychelles registered agent will not issue certificates to non-compliant entities and thus clients will face delays in their business operations when a certificate is required until their outstanding obligations are fulfilled. 

Seychelles entities are further reminded of the obligation to inform the registered agent of any change of address of directors or members on an ongoing basis. Inaccurate or not up-to-date information held on the registers may also incur penalties.

For further details, please see the penalty table covering each type of non-compliance under the IBC Act.
