Kindly appreciate:

 

Let us first decide what is your financial year—your first financial year would be from 24.09.2008 to 31.03.2009 i.e. a period of 6 months and 07 days read with section 210(4).

 

Applicability of Section-166 read with section-210 suggest in your case

 

As per Section-166 last date for holding your AGM would be March 23, 2010 i.e. 18 months from the date of incorporation of the company.

 

As per section-210 Balance Sheet & Profit and Loss A/c shall lay before the members in case of first AGM within 9 months from the end of financial year i.e. last date for holding your AGM as per section-210 would be December 31, 2009.

 

Conclusion as per the rule of Harmonious construction

 

As per my opinion your first financial year is ending on March 31, 2009 and as per section-166 you may hold your first AGM up to March 23, 2010. But here if you follow section-166 blindly without application of section-210 then there would be violation of section-210 regarding presentation of Balance Sheet & Profit and Loss A/c to the members in the first AGM within 9 months from the end of financial year.

 

Final Answer—To conclude in your case last date for holding first AGM would be December 31, 2009 which is in line with the provisions of both the sections.

 

Best Regards

Balance Sheet & Profit and Loss A/c

As per section-220 Balance Sheet & Profit and Loss A/c is required to be filed with ROC within 30 days of AGM. So last date of filing of form-23AC and 23ACA in your case would be January 29, 2010.

Annual Return

As per section-159 Annual Return is required to be filed with ROC within 60 days of AGM. So last date of filing of form-20B in your case would be February 28, 2010.

Views of other members solicited.

Best Regards

Thank You Sir for your guidance.

But to avoid the delays and penalties if we extend the first financial year upto 30th Sept, 2009 and keep the second financial year from Oct '09 to March'10, I presume, we can then hold the AGM by 23rd March 2010. We will also be not violating sec 210 and can avoid penalties.

Request your views, Sir.

You have to record the first financial year in the first board meeting in the following way:

 

 

FIXATION OF FINANCIAL YEAR OF THE COMPANY

 

On the suggestion of Mr. Y, Director, the Board of Directors decided that the financial year of the Company be fixed from 1st October to 30th September and first financial year may start with September 24, 2008 and end on September 30, 2009 being a period of 1 Year and 07 days.

No.

However after successful filing for the first you may change the FY by passing a board reolution.

To be honest it would be gr8 if you could follow my first reply and keep your FY to april-March from the very beginning.
