    IMPROMPTU
    Apart from the legal formalities enumerated in the write-up , there could be other related formalities need to be attended to and taken care of consequent upon any such shifting of corporate registered office; that could be either before or after the even t of such shifting, as the case may be, or warranted . For example, such shifting will entail a change in ‘tax jurisdiction’. For, under the scheme of tax laws, for instance, – the Income-tax Act, ordinarily, it is the AO and the other higher authorities having jurisdiction over the place of Address of the Registered Office who would have been assigned with powers in respect of all matters of compliance by the corporate. For more, e.g. as regards the related provisions for income-tax, CHAPTER XIII of the Act will require to be looked up.
