What is the threshold limit of capital for cs appointment?

This query is : Resolved 

What is the Threshold limit of Capital for Company Secretary Appointment for Private and Public Companies? I think the Limit was Rs.10 Crores at the time of commencement of Companies Act 2013 and now it has been changed to Rs.5 Crores. Can any one clarify in this regard?

Earlier, the Companies Act 2013 had mandated that all companies with a paid up capital of up to Rs 10 crore were exempted from appointing a company secretary on a mandatory basis.

Making changes to rules under the new companies law, the government has said all companies with a paid up share capital of Rs 5 crore and more will have to appoint a company secretary.

Thank you Mitesh sir. I have another doubt whether there is any provisions for Compliance Certificate to be obtained from CS for companies having share capital less than Rs.5 Crores?

As per Companies Act, 2013, Requirement of compliance certificate done away with and in its place scope of annual return has been enlarged.

However for the FY 2013-14, Compliance certificate need to be obtained for the companies having pais up capital of more than Rs. 10 Lacs and less than Rs. 5 crores.

Can you explain Sir in brief what scope has been increased in annual return? Can I get a specimen format of annual return under Companies Act 2013?

The annual return, filed by a listed company or, by a company having such paid-up capital of Rs.10 Crores or more OR turnover of Rs.50 Crores or more shall be certified by a PCS
