Annual Filing for PLCs, LLPs and ROC Compliance

According to the Companies Act 2013, all companies such as private limited companies, one-person companies, limited companies, and Section 8 companies, are mandated to uphold annual compliance avoiding which can result in heavy penalties. Therefore, it is extremely critical for the private limited companies to stick to all ROC compliances and Companies Rules. Same goes for ROC returns. ROC returns are submitted to the Registrar of Companies with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).

In comparison to PLCs, LLPs usually have less stringent guidelines to follow compliances for annual filing. LLPs are required to furnish a lesser number of documents. For example, they need to furnish account statements, and returns annually. Failing to furnish required documents and information can easily lead LLPs into getting charged with heavy penalties. 

These compliances are independent of the total turnover as well as the capital invested in the business. However, adhering to these compliances can be tricky. You can save the day by taking help of an expert who can take care of all technicalities and other aspects. Maxigain Capital can help you save time, energy and effort by ensuring your company files and follows ROC compliances as per the law, as well as avoiding penalties at the same time. 

Private Limited Companies

A PLC or Private Limited Company operates under the Companies Act, 2013 and the Companies Incorporation Rules, 2014. There can be up to 50 maximum number of shareholders in a PLC depending upon their share of investment in the business. Hence, it can easily be said that the liability of a PLC is limited and divided by the number of shares owned by the shareholders. 

A PLC has many benefits such as having a legal identity, limited liability, transparency and business recognition worldwide. If at one end of the spectrum is a partnership firm and another end is an owned public company, then a private limited company falls somewhere in between.

Limited Liabilities Partnerships

LLPs are mandated to file annual filings under the Companies Act 2013 and the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008. The LLPs are a balanced combination of a partnership firm and a company.

Registrar Of Companies Filing
