File: annual return for a Yukon corporation

  1. When to file your annual return
  2. How to prepare your documents
  3. After we receive your documents and payment

  1. When to file your annual return

    A corporation has to meet the requirements of subsection 267(1) of the Business Corporations Act. This means submitting its annual return by the last day of the month after its incorporation anniversary.

    For example, the incorporation anniversary is June 1, so the corporation must file its return by July 31 that year.


  2. How to prepare your documents

    When it’s time to prepare your annual return, download and complete Form 25 ‒ Annual return of Yukon corporation.

    How to fill out the form

    The information you provide on the form must be legible. Also make sure to complete each section.

    Section 1: Name

    The name must match with name on file. If the corporation has a French name, then the French name must be included on the annual return.

    Section 2: Yukon registry number

    Include the Yukon registry number.

    Section 3: Anniversary date

    Include the incorporation anniversary date. Make sure the month and day are the same as what was issued on the certificate of incorporation.

    Section 4: Address

    Check the appropriate box. If the address of the corporation has changed within the reporting period, you must include Form 3  ‒ Notice of change of address of corporation with the annual return. If it has changed after the anniversary date it's a separate filing.

    Section 5: Directors

    Check the appropriate box. If the directors or the directors' addresses have changed within the reporting period and notice has not been submitted within 30 days of the change then Form 9 ‒ Notice of change of directors and directors’ addresses will need to be included with the annual return.

    Section 6: Shareholder agreements

    Complete this section only if the corporation has no directors.

    Section 7: Shareholder addresses

    Complete this section only if the corporation has no directors.

    Section 8: Name

    Include the name of individual signing.

    Section 9: Title

    Include the title of individual signing.

    Section 10: Signature

    Include the signature of the individual signing.

    Section 11: Date

    Include the date the form was signed.

    You can also submit and pay for your annual return on the Yukon Corporate Online Registry (YCOR).
