Please note, that based on the Commercial Register’s practice the submission of an AFS without all of its constituents may result in rejection of the entry and respectfully in the imposition of the fines as specified below.
The AFS of joint stock companies, partnerships limited by shares and limited liability companies shall be accompanied by the proposal of the managing body on the distribution of profit or for covering a previous year’s loss and the decision of the general meeting of shareholders/partners on the allocation of profit for distribution or for covering a previous year’s loss.The AFS of an enterprise which prepares consolidated financial statements shall be published simultaneously with the consolidated financial statements of the group, together with their respective annual management reports.
In case of a breach of the deadlines hereinabove the Commercial Register may impose a fine at the amount between BGN 2000 and up to BGN 3000.
We recommend the campaign of submission of the AFS to begin as soon as possible to avoid last-minute submissions, with not-operating Commercial Register system, leading to failure to observe deadlines and further fines.
