What is ROC Compliance?
Every incorporated company in our country must fulfill their rules and regulations of the government. After incorporation, a private company needs to fulfill laws and provisions under the Companies Act 2013.
ROC (Registrar of Companies) is the designated authority that administers the Companies Act 2013. It comes under the ministry of corporate affairs. The company incorporated under the Companies Act 2013 has to mandatory file various forms, documents as well as returns in time with the Registrar of companies (ROC) in an electronic mode. It is mandatory to comply with all the rules & regulations to avoid fees, penalties etc.
