Annual Compliance of Company

What is Annual Compliance?

A business incorporated in India has to fulfil a specific set of compliance, filings and returns as prescribed under the provisions of various corporate and tax laws. In simple words, compliance means following rules and orders applicable to the entity. Every entity is governed under law and order and that entity needs to follow the rule and regulations prescribed by it. Legal and regulatory enforcement must be handled as an integral part of every corporate strategy. The executive board and management must consider the scope and consequences of the company's relevant laws and regulations. They need to set up a compliance management system as a supporting risk management program, as it significantly reduces enforcement risk.

Annual compliance means a specific set of compliance which a company has to fulfil post-incorporation in order to commence and continue its operations. Non-compliance of such compliance may lead to strike off of the company and disqualification of the directors of such Company. Annual compliance includes various returns to be filed with the MCA, Income Tax Authority, GST etc.
