Overview of Annual Compliance for Private Company

A Private Company is a legal entity and enjoys a separate identity from its directors. It requires controlling its active status through the regular filing with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). Every private company must file an annual return and audited financial reports with MCA for every fiscal year. The Registrar of Companies filing is necessary irrespective of the turnover, whether it is zero or in crores. Whether a single business is undertaken or none, annual compliances for private limited are compulsory for every certified company.

Both the forms are applied to report the activities and financial data for the concerned Financial Year. The due terms for the company's annual filing are based on the time of the Annual General Meeting. The perpetual failure may lead to the elimination of the company's name from the register of companies, including the incompetence of directors. Also, it has been noticed that MCA has actively taken bold measures to deal with any such failures. The compliances relevant to the company could be segregated into two sections Mandatory Compliances and Event-Based Compliances.

Mandatory Annual Compliances

The followings are some of the mandatory agreements that a private Limited company must ensure:

  • First Board Meeting

The First Meeting of the Board, along with Directors, is expected to be held within 30 days of the Incorporation of the Company. Declaration of Board Meeting must be sent to each director at least seven days prior to the meeting.

Form MBP‐1 shall be kept in the documents of the company.
  • First Auditor

Benefits of Annual Compliance

  • Greater Company's Credibility

Compliance with the law is the fundamental requirement for any company—the date of the company's annual return filing is displayed on the MCA portal. The government tenders, loan approval or for other purposes, the regularity in the compliance is an important criterion for measuring the credibility of a company. The regularity in compliance also increases the business's credibility, attracts more customers and helps in obtaining the government tenders and loan approval. 

  • Attract more Investors

The main focus points with regard to the investors are financial records and compliances. Before investing in any company, the investors first look into the regularity of filing the annual returns on the MCA portal. Investors are always inclined to favour the companies with regular compliance. Thus, for a private company to attract more investors, it is important to file annual compliance regularly. 

  • Maintain the Active status of a company and avoid penalties

It is important for a private company to file annual compliances on a regular basis to avoid penalties. Failure to file the annual compliance can also reduce the status of the company's business. The company may also be disclosed as defunct or removed from the ROC. The concerned directors are also excluded and debarred from their further appointment. Since July 2018, a supplementary fee of ₹100 for each day of delay has been levied till the date of filing.
