How do you amend your annual return filing month?
You can amend your annual return filing month online. There is no charge for this.
If your annual return has not yet been filed for the current year, you can change the filing month to a month in the same calendar year, provided it's not the current calendar month. You can't choose December or January as your annual return filing month.
