Additional Director… Confirm in AGM or Can we do a EGM ? How to regularise ?

REGULARISATION OF “ADDITIONAL” DIRECTOR ?

Appointed a Family member as Additional Director during the year ?

Query in your mind ? How to make this “Regular Director” …. or Normal Full time Director  ?

So, You thought this automatic ? No, that is not so

And this gets done in the next AGM  ? Yes… But what if somebody forgot ???

Advantage and Disadvantage

Should you conduct an EGM…. Does that solve things ? Faster ? Smoother ? for a MSME unit ? Yes, it works fine.

Q-  Additional Director is usually regularised in the next AGM ,but if the AGM is long time away then EGM a solution ?

Ans- Yes, an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) can be a solution for regularizing an Additional Director if the Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a long time away.

The Companies Act allows the board to appoint an additional director subject to shareholder ratification at a general meeting (https://taxguru.in/corporate-law/appointment-additional-director-prerequisites-procedure.html). This ratification typically happens at the AGM, but there is no prohibition on holding it at an EGM. In fact, holding an EGM specifically for this purpose can be a more efficient way to formalize the appointment if the AGM is far off.

Here are some additional points to consider:

  • Notice requirements: As with any EGM, proper notice must be given to all shareholders in accordance with the company’s Articles of Association (AoA) and the Companies Act. The notice should include details about the EGM, including the purpose of the meeting, which is to regularize the appointment of the additional director.
  • Proxy voting: Shareholders can appoint proxies to vote on their behalf at the EGM.
  • Voting requirement: The resolution to regularize the appointment of the additional director typically requires a simple majority vote of the shareholders present and voting at the EGM.
  • Faster process: You don’t have to wait for the AGM, which can be several months away.
  • Flexibility: An EGM can be convened at any time to address urgent matters like director appointment.

However, there are also some things to keep in mind:

  • Cost: Convening an EGM involves additional costs compared to piggybacking on the AGM.
  • Notice period: There are specific notice requirements for EGMs that need to be followed.

Overall, holding an EGM is a viable option if you need to regularize the appointment of an additional director before the next AGM. Weigh the cost and inconvenience of the EGM against the urgency of regularizing the appointment.

Question:- Additional Director is usually regularised in the next AGM

but, if the AGM is long time away

is EGM a solution ?

Source:-CA final module of The Institute of Chartered Accountant of India

  1. What is Additional director as per Companies Act,2013 ?

 Ans:-Though appointed on a temporary basis, an additional director is vested with the same powers of a director. Moreover, they are subject to all obligations and limitations of a director. They are also entitled to seek appointment as a permanent director at the Annual General Meeting. The additional director must utilize his/her powers in the best interest of the company and the shareholders.

2 .Term for Additional Director?

A person appointed as an additional director can occupy their post until the date of the next Annual General Meeting. In the absence of an Annual General Meeting, their term of appointment will conclude on the date on which the annual general meeting should have been held.

3.Additional director is usually regularized in the next AGM?

But ,if AGM is long time away ,is EGM a solution?

Yes, this is a Good Solution

What to do, if you have a Additional Director and the AGM is long Time away ? If you are a MSME unit. and closely held.

Try the EGM Route.

How to Close a Existing Non working Private Limited Company ? Costs ?

Cost of Closing a Pvt Ltd company vs LLP,  ?

Want to Close down a new Company or LLP ? What are the Advantages and Disadvantages ?

Query in your mind ? What to do ?

So, You have thought of a Closing down a non working company due to any reason ? .OK

Advantage and Disadvantage

Advantage and Disadvantage

What  are the Advantages… ?

Closing of liabilities….hmmm…. anything else ?

What are the Disadvantages ? Did you think about it ? 

You must read this before you go ahead

First, Closing down the company ?

What if, the business idea does not work ?

or, What if you and your new friend / Partner cannot work together due to any reason ?

or, What will happen if you are in LOSSES ?  and there is no Hope of revival in near future ?

Answer to the first set of three questions is …

the Company can be given birth in a week / month… but takes many months/even a year to close down.

Source : https://www.compliancecalendar.in/close-llp

This site says.. every year Tens of Thousands of Companies and LLP are made but … this site and we ourselves know that average 70% don’t start business or don’t continue beyond the first 2 years …. So you are not alone…. 

and

source 2 : https://www.professionalutilities.com/private-limited-company-closure.php

Second, Big Risk of being DisQualified and removed from your own Main company ?

What if, the “non working”  Company / LLP is not able to file its Annual return ? due to any reason ?

Effect : You will stand Disqualified from all your other companies also .. including your running “existing businesses”.

 

Want evidence ? see this …

Source : https://cleartax.in/s/director-disqualification-removal-disqualification

  • Where he/she is the director of a company that has either –
  • a. Failed to file the annual returns for 3 years running
  • b. Failed to pay interest on/repay the deposits for over a year
  • c. Failed to pay any dividend that was declared for over a year
  • d. Failed to redeem debentures or pay interest on debentures for over a year

In short, if your this new Company does not file its return due to mis-up between the partners… you become disqualified to remain director of your main business also.

 

riskCan you afford this Risk ?

What is the Probability.. that new business will not work ? ….

you might say it will work 100%… but market past shows that only 30% work and 70% do not work. So, better get somebody else in the family to become the Director till the company becomes of a significance and can be seen as a working company.

Can the procedure to close the LLP or Company be done with single party signatures ?

Of Course not. Both Parties , or say 100% of the Partners  , Directors, and shareholders must sign  the MOU for “closure”.

So, you are in a problem. Yes.

Sad part is that if both parties are not on talking terms,… and other party has nothing to lose…

Reasons ? maybe he has got a job somewhere, or he has left India for job outside India…. or ….. he does not want to pay for the LLP / Company closing expenses……he just wants to tease you …. 

in this case, you are saddled for life.

Daily rate penalty starts in all laws : GST, TDS, ROC, and Income Tax.

Better Solution : Sell the company to somebody else..

Get whatever you can… in case there are any assets.

if assets are NIL, or it is a zero asset company, then, Sell at NAV .

it could be Even at Rs 0.00 …

At least be free of the closure costs, ROC closure costs are significant… GST closure costs are also significant, Income tax closure efforts and costs are also significant
