Understanding eForm INC-22 for Registered Office Verification

eForm INC-22 is a mandatory filing required by companies to provide the Registrar with verification of their registered office within thirty days from their incorporation date. Additionally, any subsequent changes in the registered office location must be communicated within fifteen days using the same eForm INC-22.

This filing obligation is stipulated under Sections 12 (2) & 12 (4) of the Companies Act, 2013, and is governed by rules 25 & 27 of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014. As per Section 12 (2) and 12 (4) of the Companies Act, 2013, companies are mandated to furnish the Registrar with the verified details of their registered office within thirty days of incorporation. Furthermore, any subsequent changes in the registered office’s location must be notified to the Registrar within fifteen days of the alteration, as specified.

Rule 25 outlines the verification process for the registered office, necessitating the filing of Form No. INC-22 along with the requisite fee. This form must be accompanied by specific documents such as the registered premises’ title document, notarized lease/rental agreement, authorization from the premises owner/occupant, and evidence of utility services with the premises address.

Similarly, Rule 27 dictates the procedure for notifying changes in the registered office location, requiring the submission of Form No. INC-22 along with the fee and attachments similar to those specified for the initial verification upon incorporation, in line with Section 12 (2) of the Companies Act, 2013.

This ensures compliance with the regulatory requirements concerning the company’s registered office and any subsequent alterations, thus maintaining accurate records with the Registrar.

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!
