Winding Up of a Pvt Ltd Company

There are various legal compliances that you need to adhere if you are operating a private limited company such as filing income tax return, filing documents with ROC (Registrar of Companies), filing GST returns and many others. You may have registered a company with a long-term perspective but sometimes it does not work because of various reasons such as default in following compliances, the idea did not work the way it should or you are facing losses. In such cases, it is better to voluntarily close the company than to bear the cost of running and maintaining it. The new procedure to close the company is easy and quick as compared to the previous procedure which was lengthy and tedious. To get rid of annual requirements by ROC and to release your assets from the company, closure is a good option.
