ROC filing

Apart from its various consequences, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge to the world of labour. The implementation of lockdown forced various businesses to undergo serious losses and often halted the work all together as well. 

Under such circumstances it would have been inhumane to expect the companies to fulfill the obligations but the Government of India has come to the rescue yet again. 

The Government of India has graciously decided to ease the compliance obligations of the Companies under the Companies Act, 2013 and expended the times lines till 31st August 2021 for various ROC filing forms to be submitted without additional late filing fees. 

In this article you will get an informative insight on how to file your delayed ROC form without any additional fees.

According to the Circular, these forms can be filed without paying any additional fees until July 31st. The Companies are required to pay normal fees only.

Latest Update: The Ministry of Corporate Affairs vide General Circular No. 11/2021 dated 30th June, 2021, has decided to grant the above mentioned relaxation upto 31st August, 2021
