  5. XYZ Biscuits is registered trademark of its respective owner.

    Now suppose “XYZ Biscuits private limited” this name is available with ROC and I register my company with this name then can I be sued for trademark violation?

    If yes, then can I argue that name of company was registered as per the rules of ROC?

    • If XYZ Biscuits is registered trade mark of it respective owner and since the name was available on mca site,and you register the company. You can be sued for trademark violation. This is because form 1A (Name application of new company) is to be singed by an applicant. He has to verify and give declaration to the ROC that “To the best of my knowledge and belief, the information given in this application and its attachments is correct and complete,and the proposed name does not infringe the registered trademark rights of any entity or person or a trademark which is subject of an application for registration, of any other person under the Trade Marks Act,1999. Hence you have to take utmost care while submitting form 1A with ROC. You cannot argue that the name of company was registered as per the rules of ROC. Because at the end of form 1A you are giving verification that ” I undertake to be fully responsible for the consequences, in case the name is subsequently found to be in contravention of the provisions of section 20 and 21 of the Companies Act, 1956 and the prescribed guidelines.”

  6. Your updates have been very resourceful, thanks.

  7. Madam, A co. incorported in Jan 2012 has failed to intimate to auditors within 7 days of appointment in first Board meeting , hence form 23B also could not be filed by auditor. The period of AGM (18 monhts) has also elapsed and period of filing 23AC and 23ACA and annual return has also elapsed. Shall be grateful if you could kindly advise how to proceed in the matter alongwith penalties and late fee etc. Rgds.

    • Form 23B shall be required to filed after holding AGM and within 30 days from the date of receipt of appointment letter from the company. Form 23B is to be filed by an auditor once he receives appointment letter to the concerned ROC. If it is not filed within due dates, the company shall be required to pay additional fees. Please refer ‘calculation of fees’ on MCA site.

  9. Hello Mam
    I have a query related to issue os share at premium in pvt ltd co.
    Whether SR is required to be passed as per new companies act or only board resolution is enough to allot share at premium

    • Only Board resolution is sufficient to issue shares at premium because uptil now the New Companies Act 2013 not yet implemented.

  10. Dear Madam,
    Greetings for the day.
    Madam, can I register my company/LLP at my residence address?
    Is it compulsory to put a name plate of my company/LLP on the door of my house? ( My housing society may object to this?)

    My wife and me ( only 2 persons) will be forming partnership firm. My wife will be partner only for name sake otherwise the business will be managed by me.
    My wife is educated but Since, general partnership give arise to unlimited liability and I fear if wife unknowingly signs any contract then it will be big trouble so should I form LLP? what do you suggest madam.

    Thank you.

    • Yes you can register LLP by providing residential address, you have to submit proof of place. Yes, though it is not mentioned in LLP Rules, it would be advisable to place/mention the name plate of LLP on the door of your house. Yes, you and your wife can be designated partners.

  11. Thanks for providing the clarification
