    No. It doesn't make sense.

    It might be easier to correct if you rephrase it. At the moment it's not clear what you want to say.

    If "supposed" is replaced with "proposed", perhaps I can guess what you want to say.

    I guess it means "We assumed that the change of directors would be described in the company's annual return which will then be submitted to the Companies Registry".

    Hi Matthew

    How about using 'filled in' in place of 'described'?

    We propose that the change of directors be announced in the company's annual return, which will then be filed with Companies Registry.

    How does that sound? I'm still guessing at what you actually want to say so that might not work. I'm also assuming that "Companies Registry" is correct where you are. It doesn't exist in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
