An Overview of Form INC-22

If the firm intends to relocate its registered office, Form INC-22 is filed on the MCA website. The corporation must notify the Registrar of such a change within 15 days. The registered office of the company is the location where ROC or any other person can send letters or notices to the corporation. Every company or entity must have a registered office where all correspondence and notices can be received and acknowledged.

A company may not have such a facility immediately at the time of incorporation; consequently, section 12 allows a company to have a registered office within thirty days of its incorporation and will have it for the rest of its life. When transferring the registered office from one state to another, the company or LLP must publish an advertisement in the newspapers announcing the change, as well as notify the state government.
