Filing Annual Declaration of Commercial Enterprise via Online System
Prakas № 107 dated 5 April 2017
The purpose of Prakas No.107, issued by the Ministry of Commerce (“MOC”), is to regulate the submission of an Annual Declaration of Commercial Enterprise (“ADCE”) by companies, branch offices and representative offices through the MOC’s online system.
Submitting an ADCE is compulsory under the Law on Commercial Enterprises so that all registered business entities keep the MOC updated of any changes in the preceding year to its particulars recorded in the MOC’s database, such as changes in shareholding, board of directors, registered address, etc. Before the launch of the online registration system in early 2016, an ADCE had to be submitted annually in physical form to the MOC.
Prakas No. 107 states that the submission deadline for the 2016 ADCE will be determined by the MOC and communicated directly to each entity in the 11th month following the date of its online re-registration with the MOC. The ADCE must then be submitted via the MOC’s online system within three months from the end of the 12th month.
Entities failing to comply with the ADCE filing deadline will be subject to a fine of KHR 1 million (approximately USD 250).
