Forms to be pre-certified by professionals as per Companies Act 2013

on 06 March 2020



In order to reduce the workload of the registrar of companies, pre-certification by the professionals are introduced by the Ministry of Corporate. Once an e-Form has been pre-certified by a professional towards its authenticity based on the particulars contained in the books of accounts and records of the company, ROC is entitled to take on record the e-Form. Professionals are responsible for submitting/certifying documents (to be signed digitally by them) and the system would accept most of these documents online without approval by Registrar of Companies or other officers of the Ministry. If a professional gives a false certificate or omits any material information knowingly, he is liable to punishment under section 447 and 448 of the Companies Act, 2013 besides disciplinary action by the Institute which issued the Certificate of Practice.

This pre-certification is to be carried out by, Company Secretaries or chartered accountant or as the case may be the Cost Accountant in whole-time practice.
