In this editorial author shall discuss about following filing and concepts

  • AOC – 4 (Financial Statement)

I. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING:

There is always dilemma that, whether OPC is required to hold Annual General Meeting or not?

> LEGAL PROVISION:

Any business which is required to be transacted at an annual general meeting or other general meeting of a company by means of an ordinary or special resolution, it shall be sufficient if, in case of One Person Company, the resolution is communicated by the member to the company and entered in the minutes-book.

> IMPACT OF PROVISION:

    • As OPC having only one member, therefore OPC is not required to hold any General Meeting (EGM/ AGM).
    • OPC have to maintain minutes of Annual General Meeting as per (Section 122).
    • Due date of AGM of OPC is 27th
    • OPC just have to take note the resolution to be passed in General Meeting Like:

– Adoption of Annual Accounts

– Adoption of Directors Report

– Appointment of Auditor. Etc.

II. AOC- 4 (FINANCIAL STATEMENT):

    • It is required to file within 180 days from the end of Financial Year.
    • Due Date of AOC-4 is 27th September 2021.
    • If AOC-4 filed after 27 September, there is additional fees of Rs. 100 per day.
  • Attachment to AOC-4

– Financial Statement

– Abridge Directors Report (As per rule 8A)

III. MGT- 7A (ABRIDGE ANNUAL RETURN):

    • It is required to file within 60 days from the Date of AGM
    • AGM can be held maximum Upto 27 September 2021.
    • Due Date of MGT-7 is 26th November 2021.
    • If MGT-7 filed after 26 November, there is additional fees of Rs. 100 per day.
    • Attachment to MGT-7A

– List of Director

– List of Shareholder

If Date of AGM is extended by MCA, whether Due Date of AOC-4 of OPC shall be extend or not?

As OPC is not required to hold any AGM. Therefore, one can opine that, even if the date of AGM extended by the MCA, It will not impact the Due Date of AOC-4. Due Date of AOC-4 shall be 27 September.
