The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has introduced new form named INC-22A Active Company Tagging Identities and Verification (ACTIVE) for the companies incorporated on or before 31st December 2017.
Who to file:
Every Companies incorporated on or before 31st December 2017 is required to file the form before 26th April 2019 (Last Date: 25th April 2019).
I hope every professional has filed this form. If not, Kindly hurry in order to avoid penalty of Rs. 10,000/-. I am very well aware that no one would like to bear this penalty.
Company under liquidation process or amalgamation or Strike off is not required to file this form.
The Information and Documents required for INC-22A filing:
1. Latitude and Longitude of Company
2. Auditor Details of the Company
3. SRN of AOC-4 and MGT-7 for FY 2017-18
4. Photograph of Registered office showing external building and inside office also showing therein at least one director/ KMP who has affixed his/her Digital Signature to this form.
Note: Make sure AOC-4 and MGT-7 for FY 2017-18 is filed by Company. Also make sure that all directors in the Company have an Active DIN. In case DIN is deactivated you will not be able to file the FORM INC-22A. Probably DIN will be deactivated because DIR-3 KYC is not filed.
The Ministry of Corporate affairs has introduced this form with No Govt Fees.
This is an initiative of MCA to identify the companies registered under Companies Act 2013 which are not performing any business Activity and to ensure that all directors in the company are genuine.
