Manage Your Company

Operating a company in India requires adhering to a host of compliance requirements set by regulators like the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Failing to do so can hamper the company’s operations and cost lakhs in fines or even jail time for directors. This makes compliance a non-negotiable.

Some key submissions include the Annual Return filing on the MCA-21 portal each year to provide financial statements and details of directors and shareholders. Any appointment or change of directors, auditors, company secretary must also be intimated through the relevant eForms. When the company raises funding, alters share capital or takes loans, requisite filings need to be made. Commencement of business and closure also necessitate formal communication with the MCA within specified timelines.

Additional requirements apply around taxes, licenses, reporting overseas subsidiaries, foreign investments and remittances. This makes taking professional assistance crucial for both incorporation essentials and ongoing compliance. Company secretaries, chartered accountants and compliance consultants can handhold promoters to pick the right entity, obtain a DIN, manage share allotment and prepare documents.

The government is also working to simplify various processes through SPICe+ Part B for name reservation, DIN allotment and EPFO registration in one go. Starting 2023, the MCA-21 portal will have reporting functionality in XBRL format. Overall, staying updated on the latest provisions, due dates and adopting technology solutions and expert guidance enables enterprises to steer clear of non-compliance. Focusing resources on compliance allows companies to avoid disruptions, maintain stakeholder trust and drive smooth expansion.

The key is being vigilant, organized and prompt when it comes to statutory dues towards building a truly compliant corporation.
