Annual ROC Compliances Overview:

Annual ROC Compliances are thorough reports on business practices that every registered company operating in India must submit within a timeline set by the regulatory authorities of India.

To help with seamless compliance, we have developed a dependable and economical annual ROC compliance package that makes it simple to follow strict procedures for any commercial firm. This package is a contractually guaranteed service to help safeguard and legalize your commercial undertakings.

To understand ROC compliance in detail and its various aspects, go through the following details and find the best framework for your business needs.

ROC Compliance Overview

The Registrar of Companies (ROC), part of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), is the regulatory authority that awards Registration/Incorporation Certificates to Indian companies and LLPs and grants closure and oversees their administrative activities.

Companies and LLPs operating in India with registration issued under the Companies Act, 2013 and the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008, are required to comply with a detailed checklist of yearly submission or declaration filing procedures with the ROC within the prescribed deadline; failure to comply with the rules may result in heavy penalties under Indian law.

Regardless of an entity's income, profit, or loss, businesses and LLPs must file their IT returns on time. The ROC is in charge of recording the following papers from registered companies and LLPs, giving permission or taking appropriate steps as needed:

  • Directors' details, financial statements, board reports, annual returns, company resolutions (of any sort, taken), and other items finalized by the corporation in a scheduled Board Meeting.

  • ROC should accept Company Resolution (as per Section 117 of the Companies Act, 2013), Annual Account (as per Section 129(3), 137 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Rule 12 of the Company (Accounts) Rules, 2014), and Annual Return (as per Section 92 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Rule 11 of the Companies (Management and Administration) Rules, 2014) submissions within 30 (for Company Resolution and Annual Account submission) and 60 (for Annual Return submission) days of the conclusion made by the board.

  • The ROC shall examine whether the entity's Financial Statements have been duly approved by the Shareholders and signed by at least the authorized Chairperson in the Meeting, as required by Section 134 of the Companies Act, 2013.

According to the ROC criteria, registered companies in India (depending on their categories) must submit certain necessary yearly ROC Forms, together with fees, to be filed within the deadline:

Roc Filing Advantages:

Complete Financial Overview:

The filing of annual returns entails compiling the company's overall accounts for the whole year that assists in staying organized and informed on your firm’s financial situation.

Registered Mark of Company’s Existence:

Based on the filings made by the firm, the government will update the record of the company's existence.

The name of a corporation that has not filed annual reports for a long period is regarded as fraudulent, and the ROC may strike it.

Penalty Protection:

Businesses that fail to file yearly reports face an inevitable heavy penalty by the ROC. With a history of penalties, firms stand to drain crucial business funds and face legal complications. Timely filings prevent these mishaps and keep the operations moving smoothly.
