Annual report services FAQs
What is an annual report?
An annual report is a record of a company or organisation’s operations and financial performance in the previous year. Some companies produce an annual report to meet regulatory or legislative requirements, while others choose to produce a report to communicate with investors, stakeholders and partners.
How much do annual reports cost to produce?
The cost of producing an annual report varies based on factors like the size of the company, reporting and legislative obligations, and complexity of operations and performance.
Does my company or organisation have to publish an annual report?
It depends on your location, industry, and regulatory and legislative requirements. In Australia, companies listed on the ASX must submit an annual report to ASIC and NFPs submit an annual report to the Australian Charities and Not For Profits Commission.
Can WorkWords Content design our annual report?
Yes. We work with a network of experienced designers from concept to delivery.
