It is extremely important for companies and firms that are functioning in India to abide by the laws and regulations. Aside from the yearly compliances, there are particular compliance requirements that must be met when certain events or transactions occur during the lifespan of a company. This article will furnish a complete guide to help businesses understand the requirements of these event-based compliances in India. Proper comprehension of these compliance regulations is crucial to avoid charges and consequences, and maintain favorable relations with the authorities.

  1. Making sure all legal requirements are followed before and after a company is formally established is crucial. This includes following proper procedures for forming a company as well as ensuring that all necessary documents are filed with government agencies. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in serious legal issues for the company and its owners. Therefore, it is essential to take all necessary steps to ensure complete compliance.

In order to file necessary paperwork with regulatory authorities, every potential director of the company needs to acquire a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC).

To establish a business, one must reserve an exclusive name for their company beforehand by utilizing the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website.

During the process of incorporation, it is necessary to prepare, sign, and submit the Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA) of the company to the Registrar of Companies (RoC).

The MOA and AOA require payment of stamp duty, which is determined by the authorized share capital of the company.

2. Allotment and Transfer of Shares

2.1. Distribution of Stocks: A corporation, upon distributing new stocks, is required to adhere to the relevant guidelines of the Companies Act of 2013, in addition to other affiliated regulations.

2.2. Shares Transfer: The corporation is responsible for obeying the transfer provisions outlined in the MOA, AOA, and the Companies Act, 2013, when existing shares are transferred from one shareholder to another. The transfer must be documented appropriately, and all required forms and documents must be filed with the RoC.

3. Changes in Capital Structure

Such guidelines include securing approval from shareholders and creditors, submitting the required paperwork and forms to the RoC and NCLT, and adhering to other regulatory stipulations.

The evaluation and examination of shares or assets that are part of a merger or acquisition is a crucial aspect of following regulations. Businesses must carry out thorough investigations, hire unbiased evaluators, and adhere to the valuation rules set by the appropriate regulatory bodies.

After the completion of a merger or acquisition, the company is required to make certain updates to its records, registers, and filings with the RoC in order to remain compliant. These updates may involve making changes to the MOA, AOA, registers of members, directors, and charges, and obtaining new certificates of incorporation and share certificates if necessary.

8. Winding Up and Dissolution

This entails submitting the essential paperwork and records to the RoC, making a public announcement, resolving any outstanding debts, and obtaining the ultimate dissolution certificate.
