[21 May 2013] ICASA has published a notice in the Government Gazette reminding all holders of service licences issued under the Electronic Communications Act that they are required to submit audited annual financial statements or financial statements signed by their accounting officer by no later than 6 months after their financial year end. So, for example, licensees with end February as the end of their financial year will need to submit their documentation by no later than 31 August 2013.

ICASA has also noted that licensees who have not – as at six months after their financial year end – commenced providing services under the licences are required to send ICASA a formal letter confirming this.
