    Annual Company Compliance:

    It is essential for private limited companies to prioritize their annual compliance obligations. All necessary company compliances must be filed within the prescribed timelines. Here are some key annual compliances for private limited companies that you should be aware of:

    • Issuance of Share Certificates
    • After the incorporation of a company, it is essential to issue share certificates to the shareholders. Share certificates serve as evidence of ownership and specify the number of shares held by each shareholder. This process ensures transparency and legal compliance regarding shareholding within the company.
    • Business Commencement Certificate (INC-20A)
    • As part of annual compliance, companies incorporated after November 02, 2018 and having a share capital must obtain a Business Commencement Certificate within 180 days of incorporation. This form confirms that the company has commenced its business operations within 180 days of incorporation. It is a crucial compliance requirement to obtain a Business Commencement Certificate.
      Penalty for non-compliance: Failure to procure the certificate may result in a penalty of ₹50,000, and the director may be required to pay ₹1,000 for each default day.
    • Conducting Annual General Meetings (AGM):
    • Holding an AGM is crucial for annual compliance. All the companies must provide all relevant information related to the AGM during the annual filing process. An AGM should be held within six months of the end of the fiscal year, as per ROC compliance.
    • Directors Report:
    • Every company must submit the directors’ report to the ROC and MCA on time, in accordance with Section 134 as an attachment to Form AOC-4.
    • Annual Returns Filing (AOC-4 and MGT-7)
    • Annual returns filing involves submitting two forms (i) AOC-4 (Form for filing financial statements) and (ii) MGT-7 (Form for filing annual returns).
      AOC-4 includes financial information such as balance sheet, profit and loss statement, and cash flow statement.
      MGT-7 provides details about the company’s shareholding, directors, and key management personnel. These forms must be filed with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) within the prescribed timelines to comply with statutory requirements.
    • Preparation of Statutory Registers:
    • Statutory registers are important records that a company must maintain as per the Companies Act. These registers include the Register of Members, Register of Directors and Key Managerial Personnel, Register of Charges, Register of Debenture Holders, etc. Proper maintenance of these registers ensures accurate record-keeping and compliance with regulatory obligations.
    • Preparation of Minute Books and Copies of Resolutions:
    • Minute books serve as a record of the proceedings and decisions made during company meetings, such as board meetings and general meetings. These books contain minutes of discussions, resolutions passed, and other important matters. Maintaining accurate minute books and copies of resolutions ensures transparency, accountability, and compliance with legal requirements.
    • Filing of Auditor Appointment (ADT-1):
    • Companies are required to appoint an auditor within 30 days of incorporation. The appointment of an auditor must be filed with the ROC using Form ADT-1. This filing ensures that the company complies with auditing and financial reporting requirements and establishes an independent assessment of the company’s financial statements.
    • Filing of Director KYC (DIR-3 KYC):
    • The filing of Director KYC (DIR-3 KYC) is an annual compliance requirement for all directors of companies. Directors are required to update their KYC details, including personal information, contact details, and identification documents. This filing ensures accurate and up-to-date information about the directors, promoting transparency and accountability.
