Public Limited company Annual Compliance Filings

Annual compliances from the ROC (Registrar of Companies) are the next legal barrier after incorporating a public limited company. All Public Limited Companies must file yearly compliances on schedule, according to the ROC’s deadlines. Failure to file compliance on time results in severe fines for the company.

It is compulsory for every Public limited company to file yearly compliances. The Companies Act of 2013 governs annual compliances for public limited companies. The annual meeting of shareholders must be organized once every year. However, for newly created companies, the Annual General Meeting must be held within 18 months from the date of incorporation or 9 months from the date of completion of the fiscal year, whichever is sooner. The fiscal year begins on April 1st and finishes on March 31st.
