    • Hello Ma'am,



      First of all, I appreciate your query that made me dive deep into the provisions of section 141 along with the notification dated 5th June 2015 read with notification dated 13th June 2017:

      According to section 141(4)  

      Where a person appointed as an auditor of a company incurs any of the disqualifications mentioned in sub-section (3) after his appointment, he shall vacate his office as such auditor and such vacation shall be deemed to be a casual vacancy in the office of the auditor.


      according to this subsection if that private company makes a default in section 137 (filing financial statements along with CFS in AOC-4) or section 92 (filing annual return in form MGT-7/7A) then that company will not be entitled to claim exemption ( vide notification dated 13th June 2017)

      it leads to disqualification of auditor (for the purpose of that private company only). And as a result, he is required to vacate from his office in that private company and such vacation shall be deemed to be casual vacancy.[as per section 141(4)]


      In order to avoid such casual vacancy, the company shall make default good in sections 137 and 92 by filing all necessary forms along with attachments with payment of penalties.


      Hope it helps 

      Thank you
