Due Date for Annual Return OF COMPANY

Due Date for Annual Return of Company www.carajput.com; due-date-for-annual-return

All companies registered in India must file an annual return each year, irrespective of business turnover or activity. The annual return must be filed in Form MGT-7 and Form AOC-4 is also filed along with the annual return. In this article, we look at the due date for the annual returns for a company.

Filing Annual Return

A company’s annual return has to be filed with the MCA within 60 days from the date of the Annual General Meeting. All companies are required to conduct an Annual General Meeting within 6 months of the closing of the financial year. Hence, the last date for conducting the Annual General Meeting would be 30th September and the due date for filing the annual return would be 29th November.

If a company cannot hold an Annual General Meeting in any year, the annual return still has to be filed within 60 days from the date on which the Annual General Meeting should have been held together with the statement specifying the reasons for not holding the Annual General Meeting. Hence, a company cannot excuse itself from filing the annual returns on the plea of the Annual General Meeting not having been held.

Statutory Fee for Filing Annual Return

The statutory fee for filing is based on the authorized capital of the Company as follows:

For submitting, filing, registering, or recording any document Rs. by this Act required or authorised to be submitted, filed, registered, or recorded Rs.
In respect of a company having a nominal share capital of up to  Rs. 1,00,000  Rs.200
In respect of a company having a nominal share capital of Rs. 1,00,000 or more but less than Rs.5,00,000.  Rs.300
In respect of a company having a nominal share capital of Rs. 5,00,000 or more but less than Rs. 25,00,000 Rs.400
In respect of a company having a nominal share capital of Rs.25,00,000 or more but less than Rs. 1 crore or more. Rs.500
In respect of a company having a nominal share capital of Rs. 1 crore or more. Rs.600

Penalty for Late Filing Annual Return

In case a company files its annual return after 60 days of the date of the Annual General Meeting or after 29th November, a penalty would be the applicable date of the event and date of filing. Further, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has proposed to increase the penalty for late filing of annual return multi-fold as follows from the year 2018:

Number of Days Default Current Penalty Proposed Penalty
Up to 15 days Rs.400 Upto Rs.3,000
More than 15 days and up to 30 days  Rs.800 Upto Rs.6,000
More than 30 days and up to 60 days Rs.1600 Upto Rs.12,000
More than 60 days and up to 90 days  Rs.2400 Upto Rs.18,000
More than 90 days and up to 180 days Rs.4000 Upto Rs.36,000
More than 180 days and up to 270 days  Rs.4800 Upto Rs.54,000
More than 270 days Rs.100 per day penalty Rs.200 per day penalty

Note: The above chart has been worked for a company with a capital of share capital of Rs.1,00,000. The new penalty proposed by the MCA from the year 2018 for late filing of annual return is Rs.100 per day per filing. Since a company will have to file MGT-7 and AOC-4, the penalty for a day of default would be Rs.200.

The MCA announcement about the upcoming changes to the penalty structure has been published on the website as under:

“It is proposed to amend shortly, the Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules 2014 to levy additional fee @Rs.100 per day for filings under Section 92 (Annual Return) or 137 (Annual Financial Statement) of the Companies Act, 2013. Once notified, the additional fee @Rs.100 per day (beyond the normal date of filing) shall become payable in respect of 23AC,23ACA,23AC XBRL,23ACA XBRL,20B,21A, MGT-7, AoC-4,AoC-4 XBRL and AoC-4 CFS. Stakeholders are advised to take note and plan accordingly.”

CORPORATE AND PROFESSIONAL UPDATE MAY 13, 2016

Professional Update For the Day:

Untitled7Direct Tax:

CBDT has issued a circular regarding Verification of tax-returns for Assessment Years 2009-2010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012 2012-2013, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 through EVC which are pending due to non-filing of ITR-V Form and processing of such returns vide circular No. 13/2016 dated 09.05.2016.

Gujarat HC allows assessee’s writ, holds that interest on enhanced compensation doesn’t fall within the ambit of the expression “interest” as envisaged u/s 145A (which provides that interest received on compensation/ enhanced compensation shall be taxable in the year of receipt); Revenue had rejected assessee’s NIL TDS certificate application made u/s 197(1) on the ground that interest on enhanced compensation (received u/s 28 of the Land Acquisition Act) is taxable as income from other sources in terms of Sec 145A- Gujrat High Court

Only consistent loss making co. should be excluded from the list of comparables: ITAT

IT: Interest income accrued on time deposits – AO has only taken into account the Journal entries credited in the account. The AO has not taken into account the corresponding Journal entries debited – No additions –DLF Hilton Hotels Vs. CIT, Delhi (2016 (5) TMI 492 – Delhi High Court)

IT: Refund of TDS wrongly deducted – Deduction for TDS on Compensation u/s 28 of Land acquisition Act – ITO (TDS) directed to forthwith deposit such amount with the Reference Court which shall thereafter disburse such amount to the petitioner herein – Movaliya Bhikhubhai Balabhai Vs. ITO, Surat (2016 (5) TMI 488 – Gujarat High Court)

Indirect Tax:

HC reverses CESTAT decision, disallows MODVAT credit under Rule 57G of Central Excise Rules on the basis of invoices endorsed by consignee; Said Rule amended w.e.f. April 1, 1994 by which invoices issued by manufacturers and dealers in prescribed form were considered valid duty paying documents, thus eliminating endorsement thereof; Further, in terms of Notifications dated March 30, 1994 and July 4, 1994, invoices issued by specified category of persons viz. wholesale distributors, dealers & importers, enabled input credit availment; HC finds that CESTAT has ignored LB ruling in Balmer Lawrie & Co. Ltd. where it was held that after the issuance of Notification dated July 4, 1994, invoices can be issued only by a registered dealer and only then MODVAT credit can be claimed on strength thereof; Hence, by virtue of changes in procedure, manufacturer could avail MODVAT credit only upon invoices being issued under Rule 52A, holds HC thereby allowing Revenue appeal  : Gujarat HC

HC dismisses Revenue appeal, upholds availment of CENVAT credit by company HO i.r.o. input services rendered to various units, absent restriction of proportionate distribution in terms of Rule 7(d) of CENVAT Credit Rules; Rule 7 at relevant time, permitted input service distributor (ISD) to distribute CENVAT credit of input services to its manufacturing units or units providing output services subject to conditions that (a) credit distributed does not exceed service tax amount, and (b) credit of service tax attributable to service used by one or more units exclusively engaged in manufacture of exempted goods or providing exempted services shall not be distributed.- Rajsthan High Court

Merely because, the concerned witnesses have not retracted their statements would not be a ground to deny cross examination. .(M/s Mulchand M.
