Applicability of CARO,2003


CARO,2003 is not applicable in case of private company if it does not have  borrowing outstanding exceeding Rs.25 lacs from Banks/FIs. My query is as follows:

 

1.My client is pvt ltd. co. It is the second year of the company. In first year, CARO had been done by other auditor even in case of non-applicability. It takes loan from directors & its interested firms (not from banks/FIs) & outstanding at the year end Rs.34 lacs during the year.Therefore whether CARO is applicable in this case?

 

2.If CARO is not applicable in above case, then which ROC forms to be filed for annual filing? Whether AGM will be conducted?

Previous auditor has done CARO,2003 only voluntarily and was not mandatory.

So in ma view if it crosses Rs.25 lacs then CARO WILL BE APPLICABLE.

Wait for other members to comment and correct me if i am wrong.

as per CARO 2003 loan only include loan from bank or financial institute as in your case company took loan from directors therefore CARO is not applicable to the company.

AGM has to conduct. it doesnt matter whether CARO applicable or not.

1. CARO is applicable for pricate ltd co. only when they

               a. paid up capital is more than Rs.50lakhs or b. Loan from banking and financial institution in excess of Rs.25 lakhs or c. Turnover in excess of Rs.5 crores

In your case CARO 2003 would not be applicable. In case of an error in the previous year, its not necessary you continue it this year also. No report under CARO be issued.

 

2. ROC form will not be depedent on applicability of CARO. It will always be Form 20B for annual returns, 23AC for filing Balance Sheet and 23ACA for filing Profit & Loss a/c.

All companies should have an AGM(refer sec 166 of Companies Act,1956)

CARO IS NOT APPLIBALE IN YOUR CASE

As Loans from Banks & Financial Institutions does not exceed Rs.25 lakhs.

Forms for Annual Filling is E- Form 20B, 23AC,23ACA & 66 if applicable.

AGM must be conducted ( Sec-166).
