Process To Add A Director To A Company In MCA

  1. A private Limited Company is a legal entity established under the Companies Act. Therefore, a company is required to maintain regular compliance throughout the life cycle.
  2. The process of winding up is for a company that needs to be more active and avoid compliance responsibilities.
  3. A company can also be closed by applying with the Ministry of Corporate Finance in about 3 to 6 months. This process can happen online entirely. The process for closing a company is fast and easy if done through IndiaFilings.
  4. If a company doesn’t file the compliances on time incurs a fine and penalty, including debarring the Directors from starting another Company. In that way, it is better to wind up an inactive company and avoid the potential fines or liability in future.
  5. Compared to maintaining compliance for a dormant company, it is actually to wind up a company again when the time is right.
  6. A company that maintains proper compliance can be liquidated easily. In case of any over-dues of compliances, it is necessary to regularise them first. However, it is to be noted that all the registrations also need to be surrendered.
