The Companies Act 2013 states that all companies are required to fulfill certain legal compliance annually, which are collectively known as Annual compliance of the private limited company or RoC filing

In this regard, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has provided relief to the directors of the companies. MCA has recently extended the due date of RoC filing forms for the annual compliance of private limited company.

2. Why has MCA extended the annual compliance due date?

In the wake of technical glitches faced in the filing of the RoC returns on MCA portal, the professionals had made requests to the government to further postpone the due date of the annual compliance of private limited company, without charging the additional or late fee of annual compliance.

Taking note of the constant representations from various stakeholders i.e. CA & CS professionals for the extension of due date for RoC filing, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has now postponed the due date of filing, of financial statements of the financial year ending 31st March 2019 in e-form AOC-4 to 30th November 2019 and the annual return in e-form MGT-7 to 31st December 2019.

However, the late fee shall be applicable in case of delay in filing of RoC filing E-forms beyond the abovementioned due dates. It is advised to timely file the annual compliance forms to avoid the heavy penalty.
