The road moves on so does my think tank series. Thanks to the tremendous response on my article on filing of returns related to deposit in Form DPT 4.
You can read about it at the following link
This is one of the important changes that have happened from Companies Act of 1956 (old act) to Companies Act of 2013 (new act). In the old act there was a requirement on the directors to disclose their interest to the company in form 24AA and the same needed to be taken on records by the company in a board meeting.
Similarly in the new act, a director has to disclose interest in form MBP 1 to the company in the first board meeting of the company. Section 184(1) and Rule 9(1) of Companies (Meetings of Board and its Powers) Rules,2014 deal with this requirement.
DUE DATE FOR FILING: Within 30 days of holding first Board Meeting.
SAVINGS FOR SMALL COMPANY: A Small Company need not get the same attested by a practicing professional, meaning the company can file the form itself.
- Prepare MBP 1 in format notified by the government.
- Prepare board resolution
