Relaxation on Additional Fees being Levied under Companies Act, 2013 and LLP Act, 2008
MCA has relaxed additional fees on certain forms under the Companies Act, 2013 and LLP Act, 2008 vide General Circular No. 06/2021 dated 03/05/2021.
This comes in the wake of Current Pandemic Covid-19 situation in the country.
Every form of Companies Act, 2013 and LLP Act, 2008 but other than Charge Form (CHG-1, CHG-4 and CHG-9) has been covered under this relaxation.
Further Charges forms are relaxed with slightly different rules vide General Circular no. 07/2021
Interestingly Form SH-7 has also been covered under this relaxation unlike CFSS Scheme, 2020.
It is important to understand the period of relaxation here.
As of now only those forms will be covered under this relaxation whose due date falls between 01/04/2021 to 31/05/2021 and filing without additional fees will be allowed upto 31st July, 2021 for such forms.
Here the due date is falling under the prescribed period of 01/04/2021-31/05/2021 hence additional fees will not be levied till 31/07/2021.
Here the due date is falling beyond the prescribed period of 01/04/2021-31/05/2021 hence additional fees will be applicable as per the current general circular.
