    In July 2014 FMA published a report on our review of the filing of financial statements by a sample of issuer companies with 31 March 2013 balance dates. That review highlighted directors’ statutory obligations to file financial statements by the due date, informed directors and participants of the FMA’s focus in this area, and the action taken by the FMA against persistent late-filers and non-filers.
