Removal of paper-based annual return

From 2019, the paper version of the annual return will be obsolete. Here we explain the support available to help your firm move over to the online version.

When you are ready to complete your firm’s first annual return online in 2019, our dedicated annual return team is here to talk you through the completion of the full set of questions by phone. They are also available to answer any questions you might have.

If you have not completed an annual return for 2018, you can choose between the paper version or the online version (subject to timings).

To complete your firm’s transition, we need the email address of the most appropriate person in your firm. This is usually the Practice Assurance principal. We will use this email address for all future correspondence about the completion of the annual return, including useful reminders, log in details and support materials.

Please send your email address to annualreturns@icaew.com or telephone us on +44 (0)1908 546 372 by 31 October 2018.

Your personal details

We’d like to let you know that in addition to receiving emails about the annual return, you will also receive regulatory updates by email. These updates include changes to regulations and other important pieces of regulatory information which are pertinent to your role as the ICAEW contact for your firm. We only send a few of these each year.

If you are an ICAEW member, you can update your communication preferences for all non-regulatory communications in the preference centre.

It is very important to us that we protect your privacy. Please read our privacy notice for further information about how we use your data at icaew.com/dataprotection

 Please do not hesitate to contact the annual return team if we can be of further assistance.
