China company annual return is a summary of the most relevant information pertaining to a company and close corporation. By lodging annual returns companies and close corporations ensure that the CIPC is in possession of the latest information. It also confirms that the company and close corporation is still in business or will be doing business in the near future.

An annual return is a statutory return that companies incorporated in China must be complied with. All companies are required by law to lodge their annual returns within a certain period of time every year. Failure to do so will result in the authority assuming that the company is not doing business or is not intending on doing business in the near future. Non-compliance with annual returns may lead to deregistration, which has the effect that the juristic personality is withdrawn and the company or close corporation ceases to exist.
