Ministry of Corporate Affairs by their notification dated April 25, 2019 has hereby extended the due date for filing of Form INC-22A to June 15, 2019. The government has extended the deadline for uploading photos of business premises giving corporates more time to comply with a provision aimed at spotting shell companies.


The disclosures, which came into effect from February, make it mandatory for registered companies to upload pictures of their business premises and at least one director. The last date for compliance was Thursday, April 25 which is now extended till 15th June 2019 and the move came after the ministry received representations from industry associations with many companies yet to comply. Startups have, in particular, pointed out that many of them operate out of homes or shared premises or office suites.


The new norm requires companies to upload a photograph of the external facade of their registered office with a board displaying the company name, corporate identity number, address of the entity, email and phone number. The entity also has to upload a photo of the office interior showing at least one director who will also sign the form.


This new electronic form INC-22A, which is also known as e-Form ACTIVE (Active Company Tagging Identities and Verification), was notified as part of the Companies (Incorporation) Amendment Rules, 2019 in February. If the form is filed within the due date, there is no fee, while late filing will attract a fine of INR 10,000.
