The Annual Return Of The Corporation Is The Mechanism By Which A Corporation Submits Its Financial Report To The Registrar For The Past Year. The Declaration Is Mandatory And, If Not Met With, Carries Significant Fines And Certain Legal Implications. The Account Books Play An Important Role In Filing The ITR And ROC Returns. In This Section, We Discuss Systematically Every Aspect Of A Company's Annual Return. As Mandated By Sections 92 And 137 Of The Companies Act, 2013, We Shall Apply An Annual Return To The ROC (Registrar Of Company) With A Profit & Loss Study, Cash Account And Balance Sheet With The Company Registrar.
Every individual who hold a Director Identification Number (DIN) as on 31st March of a financial year as per these rules shall submit e-form DIR-3-KYC for the said financial year to the Central Government

After the end of the financial year, every company must prepare a financial statement which consists of Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Account. The financial statement then must be audited by an Independent CA in whole-time practice. As per section 139 of the companies act, a consultant should not verify his work; we have a panel of independent auditors to audit your books of accounts and issue statutory audit reports and sign on Balance Sheet.
A company is a separate and distinct legal entity. It is thus under a legal obligation to file its Income Tax Return during the year 2020-21, even if the company existed even for one day in fiscal 2019-20. The audited financial statement and the opinion expressed by the independent auditor in the audit report are the basis of preparation for the income tax return of the company. The delay in filing the ITR has its perils. Hence please file your ITR within its Due Date.
Form ADT-1 is prescribed e-form for filing intimation about appointments or changes in the auditor of the company. The annual general meetings are held to conduct four activities, such as approval of financial statements, declaration of dividend appointment of directors, and to consider the auditor's appointment or reappointment. Within 15 days of the conclusion of the AGM, you must file form ADT-1 with the roc. If delayed, it can be filed with an additional fee.
In form AOC-4, the company files its financial statement and director’s report as required under the law. This is also known as financial filing to the ROC by a company. The audited balance sheet, profit, and loss account, auditors report, and director’s report are the mandatory attachments. The due date to file the form AOC-4 is 30 days from the date on which the AGM of the company was concluded. If the filing is delayed, it can still be filed with an additional fee of Rs. 100 per day.

In the annual return of the company, all the significant changes that took place in the company during the financial year are reported. Please note that it is a mandatory roc filing and applies to a company even if there is no business transaction. The details are prepared in MGT-9, which is also submitted as an attachment to MGT-7. If not filed, it will cost you Rs. 100 for each day of delay.
