A auditor resigned due to lack of time.
he stated same reason in his ADT 3
Q1- Now Is it a casual vacancy or casual vacancy caused by resignation?
If its casual vacancy by resignation then we understand that BOD can appoint auditor subject to approval by EGM in 3 months.
Q2-In this connection should ADT1 be filed within 15 days of BOD appointment or within 15 days Only after approval by EGM?
ello to all,
We are filing the MGT 7 of a Pvt Ltd and in this company out of 2 Director one was disqualified u/s 164(2) and we were not able to complete INC 22A but after changing the DIR 12 version recently we remove this director and appoint one Director.
Now When we make cessation of that Director Resubmission was came that date of cessation shall be Date of Disqualification so we entered date of cessation as 01.11.2016 and the same was approved and that person cease from Master data and new Director appointed.
But when we mention the details of that Disqualified Director in MGT 7 of 2018-19 that he was the Director as on 31.03.2019, pre scrutiny error is coming that DIN is not associated with current Designation.
So what will be the solution. Pls guide
Please Suggest me Does there is Change in Accounting Standard due to XBRL (eXtensible Business Reporting Language)
The vacancy caused by the death of a director is to be filled. Now which route should be taken i.e. filling the same by the Board in the manner as laid down for filling a casual vacancy ( i.e. for the remaining period of the original director) or appointment as Fresh (Additional Director). Kindly elaborate the logic behind the (selected) manner of appointment. What if the deceased is an ID?Click here to view / answer Share it on
