    Sir, My question is that if a company incorporated 12/12/2017 but taking extension of Financial year more than 15 month due to which FY will be 31/03/2019 will be taken , for such company INC-22A is possible if FY 17-18 is not filled because not required to file due to extension of Financial year period.

    Is the Dormant Company (Section 455 of the Companies Act, 2013) not exempted from filing INC – 22A Active Form?

    1. AAKANSHA NEGI says:

      Only above mentioned 4 category Companies are exempted from filling of INC 22 A (Active form) , Therefore one can opine that yes Dormant Companies are also required to file the INC 22A (Active Form).

    1. AAKANSHA NEGI says:
