Ground of Discussion:

As per Companies Act, 2013 Company have to circulate audited financials with share holders at the time of AGM. There is no provision which restricting the company to get audit till 30th June.

However, as per Rule 16 Every company….. file with the Registrar, a return in Form DPT-3……. furnish the information contained therein as on the 31st day of March of that year duly audited by the auditor of the company.

Therefore, one can opine that it is very clear by language of Law that figures of Net worth calculation should be audited by the Auditor of company as on 31st March.

e.g. DPT-3 filed for 31st March, 2019 then audited net worth figure should be related to date 31st March, 2019.

    Hello Sir. I have a question regarding MSME form 1.
    A party whose amount is due from October 2018 and is not registered as Micro or small gets its MSME registration on 17.02.2019. So do we need to file MSME 1 for the same as on 31.03.2019. Well my take is that we dont have to since the party is registered in MSME for less than 45 days. Though my due is standing for more than 45 days but to the MSME my due is less than 45 days.

    Kindly solve my problem
