Form AOC-4: forms

Every company required to file the particulars of balance sheet and profit and loss account in form AOC-4 every yearwithin 6 months from the closure of the financial year.

What is Form AOC-4?

Every company registered in India as per the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 mandatorily required to file the financial statements and other necessary documents with the Registrar in the prescribed form AOC-4. This form contains the balance sheet, profit & loss Account, related party transactions details with the auditor’s report. For the OPC only the financial statement does not include the CFS (Cash Flow Statement). Hence, no need to prepare cash flow statement for the purpose of filing the annual accounts.

Though a One Person Company allows an individual shareholder to operate the corporate entity, it’s his sole responsibility to file the financial statements. For other business entities directors are responsible to file the annual form.
