When to file your annual return
An extra-territorial corporation has to meet the requirements of subsection 267(1) of the Government of Yukon's Business Corporations Act. This means submitting your annual return by the last day of the month immediately following the month of the registration anniversary in Yukon.
For example, the registration anniversary is June 1, so the corporation must file its return by July 31 of that year.
