Cambodia Legal Update: Online re-registration filing deadline extended again to 31 December 2019January 31, 2019
According to a previous notice of the Ministry of Commerce (“MOC”) dated 22 December 2017, all corporate entities were required to complete their online re-registration with the MOC by 31 December 2018.
Recently, the MOC issued another notice, No. 0384, dated 30 January 2019, regarding further extension of the online re-registration deadline to 31 December 2019 to give companies more time to comply with this requirement.
As the MOC continues to move towards stricter enforcement, we urge all entities that have not yet processed their online re-registration to take advantage of this deadline extension.
In order to complete re-registration, existing entities must submit their 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 annual declarations of commercial enterprise (“ADCEs”) together with certain other required documents and upload them to the MOC online system. Note that there is a fine of KHR2 million (approximately US$500) for each ADCE filed late, in addition to a filing fee of US$20 per ADCE.
