If a company has been incorporated on 24th February 2014, then what are the legal compliances for instances, holding AGMs, Board Meetings, etc. Further, as on which date the Company shall prepare its first financial statement?
According to the companies act 2013, a company has to hold its agm at any time after the end of Financial year(31st march) but before 6 months from end of financial year (30th september) every year, in case the company didn't hold its agm till 30th september penal provision is attracted towards compnay In case of board meeting, company have to hold 1 board meeting in every quarter, that count to 4 board meeting in 1 financial year and there could be a maximum gap of 60 days between 2 board meeting The company have to put their financial statement in every agm towards their shareholder.
In my view, as per CA, 2013, if company is incorporated during Jan-Mar of any year, say Feb-2015, its first financial year should close on 31/03/2016 (read section 2(41) of CA, 2013). And so, its first AGM can be hold up to 31/12/2016 (read section 96(1) of the CA, 2013). Its next FY should be from 01-04-2016 to 31/03/2017 and next (2nd) AGM should be by 30/09/2017.

There are some extension provisions as well, but the same are not allowed in case of first AGM.

hello as the name suggests an AGM must ordinarily be held by every company in each calendar year; special rules apply, during the calendar year in which a company is incorporated and in the following calendar year. What is important as regards those two years is that the first AGM be held within 18 months after the company is incorporated. This means, a company is incorporated on feb 2014, there is no need for an AGM in 2014. provided the first AGM is duly held on or before july 2015.. afte the first general meeting company should take in each calender year and it should not be longer than 15 month. it means the deffence between the annual general meeting should not be more than 15 months the financial statement of the comapny have to be prepared from the date of incorporation till year end date of the financial year which may not be 12 months. the maximum period of financial year can be fifiteen months with the permission of the ROC. and it can be extended to eighteen months legal complience will be the appointment of auditor,allotment of securities, other registrations,filing of e-form with registrar of co etc.
