Ministry Of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has introduced additional compliance to be fulfilled by all companies registered under the companies act 2013 including One Person Company, Private Limited Company, Section 8 Company, or a Limited company. This initiative is taken in order to filter shell companies and maintain an updated KYC record of all the companies which are genuinely conducting business. An additional eForm INC 22A ACTIVE which stands for “Active Company Tagging Identities and Verification” is required to be filed giving the particulars of the company, its directors, its status, and its registered office and has to be certified by a practicing professional. Only after filing this e-Form, the companies would be marked as ACTIVE compliant. This compliance is required to be fulfilled by every company registered on or before 31st December 2017.
