Under The Regulation of Fiduciaries (Fiduciary Advertisements and Annual Returns), Regulations, 2012 persons holding a fiduciary licence are required to complete an Annual Return each year. An Annual Return covers the period from 1 July to 30 June. There are separate forms for the holders of personal fiduciary licences and full fiduciary licences. The deadline for completion of the Annual Return form is 31st August each year.
Once completed the Annual Return form should be submitted to the Commission in Microsoft Excel format through the Online Submissions Portal. The Return will appear in the timeline for the lead or personal licensee. If you click on the return and select ‘Begin’ you will be taken to the start page of the submission which will display an introduction, the name of the licensee, and the dates covered by the return. Holders of a full fiduciary licence will need to select an Ownership Category. If you click on ‘Create’ this will take you to the Document Upload page where you can upload the Annual Return for and any other additional information.
Annual Return forms which are not submitted through the Online Submissions Portal will not be accepted.
Information gathered through the Annual Return will assist the Commission in its supervision of the sector and in the identification of emerging trends.
