EVENT BASED COMPLIANCES UNDER COMPANIES ACT, 2013

We discussed about compliances under Companies Act, 2013 which are to be done on annual basis even if there are no changes in the state of affairs of the company. However, apart from such regular compliances there are several even based compliances under Companies Act, 2013 that are required to be adhered to. Such compliances under Companies Act, 2013 are non-negotiable and are to be adhered to without any lapse. If there is any delay in filing such forms after due date then it attracts penalties and punishments.<br/>

 

Following are examples of few such event based compliances:

Whenever there is any change in board of directors including appointment and cessation or change in designation it must be communicated to the registrar through filing of DIR-12 within 30 days of such change.
Any company can change its registered office due to various reasons. However, it is obligated to intimate such change to the Registrar Of Company. Following are different scenarios for change in registered office:
• If such change is within the local limits of the city then only INC- 22 is required to be filed for intimation.
• If such change is outside the boundaries of city but within the state then special resolution is passed. E-Form MGT-14 along with INC-22 is required to be filed.
• On the other hand if registered office is shifted to another state or outside the jurisdiction of one ROC to another there are some additional compliance. Furthermore, along with MGT-14 and INC-22 company is required to file for Central Government approval in INC-23 and its confirmation is filed in INC-28.
In case you are planning to increase the authorized capital of any company first step is to pass a special resolution for changing the MOA in the EGM. File MGT-1 4 for registering such special resolution. Finally, the next step is to file SH-4 with the ROC.
If the members decide to change the name of a registered company then following steps are required to be followed:
• Check for name availability and reserve it through RUN service.
• Pass special resolution and file MGT-14.
• File INC-24 for central government approval.
These are the compliances under Companies Act, 2013 in case the company creates any charge i.e a security given for securing any amount of loan. In case of creation of a fresh charge or any modification of existing charge e-Form CNG-1 is required to be submitted.
On the other hand in case of settlement of charge e-Form CHG-4 is to be filed.
It is important to consider that these compliances under Companies Act, 2013 are tedious and repetitive process. Such compliances under Companies Act, 2013 is an on going process and not a onetime thing. Only event based compliances under Companies Act, 2013 are dependent on any incident.
