ROC Compliance for Companies & LLPs


In India, the Registrar of Companies (ROC) is crucial for keeping things transparent and making sure that companies and LLPs follow the rules laid out in the Companies Act and the LLP Act. To do this, companies and LLPs have to regularly submit various types of documents. These documents fall into categories like yearly submissions, paperwork when forming a company, and reports during the year. In this article, we will explain these forms in detail, when they need to be submitted, what you need before submitting them, and what happens if you’re late in submitting them, for both companies and LLPs.

By doing this, businesses can stay legal and transparent, which is crucial for success in India.

I have recently registered a Private Limited firm and was looking for a CA to take care of the filings, Startup India Certificate, and other formalities. I have received emails from legal Suvidha and a few others. I tried talking to them all. But, Mr. Mayank from Legal Suvidha was very impressive and was patient enough, prompt to answer all the queries. He has a very professional team and after the initial formalities, I started interacting with the team. It's not even 2 weeks but I really feel overwhelmed by their service and professionalism. I received my startup India certificate yesterday and my filings have been done promptly. The team at legal suvidha Ms. Nidhi, Ms. Priyanka, Ms. Koshika, and Ms. Saloni all show the same professionalism and are readily available to take care of the official filings and stuff. Overall a great experience till now and looking forward to a great journey!
