OPC Annual Filing, AGM Provisions and extension clarification

One Person Company:

Sec 2(62) “One Person Company” means a company that has only one person as a member. 

For OPC: Return Filing Provisions & AGM

  • Section 137 of the Companies Act, 2013

One Person Company shall file a copy of the financial statements duly adopted by its member, along with all the documents which are required to be attached to such financial statements, within one hundred eighty (180) days from the closure of the financial year

  • AGM not Applicable for OPC: Section 96

(1) Every company other than a One Person Company shall in each year hold in addition to any other meetings, a general meeting as its annual general meeting and shall specify the meeting as such in the notices calling it, and not more than fifteen months shall elapse between the date of one annual general meeting of a company and that of the next:

For FY 2019-20: OPC Annual Filing & AGM

The due date for Annual Filing was 27.09.2020 and can be filed till 31.12.2020 without any additional fee under CFSS, 2020 but at present, CFSS is finished. So in case a return has not been filed, a Penalty (additional fees) will be levied from the due date (27.09.2020). 

Further AGM Provisions under Section 96 of CA, 2013 are not applicable on One Person Company (OPC). AGM Extension will not work for OPC because the due date for filing Annual Returns is 180 days from the closure of FY not from the date of AGM. 

In case you want to conduct AGM voluntarily for OPC, you are required to conduct the same before the due date of return i.e. 27.09.2020. 

AGM extension orders not applicable on OPC and hence OPC can’t conduct their AGM (Voluntary) beyond 27.09.2020.

Delhi Order Copy: 

Kindly note that: (for other than OPC & knowledge purpose) – Date of AGM shall be included while calculating the filing days.

For Example:

AGM Date is 31.12.2020 then ADT-1 has to be filed on or before 14.01.2021 & AOC-4 on or before 29.01.2021 without any additional fee. The same will be applicable for MGT-7 as well (within 60 days from AGM)
