Following company registration, use Carswell Legal Solutions to file an initial return or declaration within a certain number of days following incorporation. Do this yourself online or have us attend the corporate registries on your behalf.
The initial filings and declarations are mandatory in all provinces in Canada in order to set out the directors and officers of the company along with titles and election dates, as well as setting out registered or head office address and mailing information.
Once company formation has taken place, there are annual upkeep requirements. Use Carswell Legal Solutions to file your federal or provincial annual return or declaration with the appropriate government registry fast and conveniently online or have us attend in person on your behalf.
All companies must file annual returns and declarations to update their corporate information. Even with no changes to corporate information, the annual filings and declaration must be filed as proof that the board of directors has had their annual meeting to review particulars of the company.
Post company formation, there may be organizational changes that may take place throughout the lifecycle of a company. Changes in officers and directors’ information, change of address (changes in head office and mailing addresses) and changes in the total number of directors that a corporation can have are those changes that have to be filed via notice of change and amending declarations.
Use Carswell Legal Solutions to file your notice of change or amending declaration with the appropriate government registry fast and conveniently online or have us attend in person on your behalf.
With the increasing number of Ontario corporate filings made each year, keeping track of changes and monitoring accuracy manually becomes a time-consuming challenge.
To assist Carswell Legal Solutions offers:
FileAdvisor which monitors Ontario Corporation Numbers (OCNs) and notifies you of any filings made to those corporate records
Compliance Watch which compares any subscribed OCNs against the Ontario Gazette corporate activity announcements and notifies you if any OCNs are in default according to the listed statuses.
It’s the effortless way to keep track of any changes made by accountants, clerks, clients, or even unauthorized individuals.
Personalization of documents such as the shareholders' agreement, the custom made share capital structure or a merger can be complex. Beyond the legal transaction, the expert should consider the contractual nature of the document. In addition, available and free models on the Web are not necessarily compliant with the law.
*Legal drafting is only available in Quebec.
