Auditor’s Appointment In Form ADT-1 Due Date 15.10.2014

Contributed by CA Surekha Ahuja
There is a provision in Company Law for filing of intimation to Registrar of Companies, Ministry of Corporate Affairs of appointment of statutory auditor in the Annual General Meeting by shareholders. This provision of filing intimation is an annual provision in Companies Act, 1956 and continued in Section 139 of Companies Act, 2013.
Companies Act, 2013, there are a few changes in

-       Procedure for filing of such Intimation.
-       Due date for filing of intimation,
-       The responsible person to file such intimation with MCA/ ROC. 

Appointment of Auditor in Companies Act, 2013

Every company shall, at the first Annual General Meeting, appoint an individual or a firm as an auditor to hold office from the conclusion of that meeting till the conclusion of its sixth annual general meeting and thereafter till the conclusion of every sixth meeting. ( Section 139 of the Companies Act, 2013 )

Further it shall be duty of the Company to place the matter relating to such appointment for ratification by members at every Annual General Meeting. Before appointment, Auditor shall be liable to provide the written consent to the Company for such appointment, along with a certificate to the effect that the appointment and that appointment shall be in accordance with the prescribed conditions.

INTIMATION OF APPOINTMENT OF STATUTORY AUDITOR  TO MCA 

It is duty of the Company to file form for intimation of the appointment of Statutory Auditor in Form ADT.1 as attachment with E-form GLN.2 with MCA. The Company has to inform the auditor concerned of their appointment, and also file a notice of such appointment with the MCA within fifteen days of the meeting in which the auditor is appointed.  ( Companies Act 2013 )

 Since the last date for conducting the AGM for most companies was 30th September’2014 and the auditors would have been appointed in the AGM, therefore the notice of appointment of auditors is to be filed with the Registrar by the 15th October’2014.

As per Section 139 of the Act, read with Rule 5 of Companies (Audit and Auditors) Rules, 2014, the auditor who has already been auditor for five consecutive years or 10 years in case of firm (two terms of five consecutive years in case of firm) would be re-appointed for 5 years but the re-appointment term will be 3 years in the following cases :
a) Listed Companies or Unlisted Public Companies having paid up capital of Rs.10 Crores or more or
b) Private Companies having paid up capital of Rs. 20 Crores or more or
c) Companies having public borrowings from Banks, Public Financial Institutions or Public Deposits of Rs. 50 Crores or more.

The AGM resolution shall contain 2019 in case re-appointment is for 5 years and 2017 in case re-appointment is for 3 years.

Earlier under Companies Act, 1956, it was duty of the Auditor to file form 23B with MCA for an appointment as Statutory Auditor. 

 Intimation of appointment of First Auditor to MCA - Companies Act, 2013:

 Company is under an obligation to give notice of appointment to the MCA / Registrar in Form No.ADT.1 through E-form GLN.2 in case of appointment of auditors under section 139(1)  i.e other than first auditor.

Company is under no obligation to give notice of appointment of First Auditor to the MCA/ Registrar as the appointment of first auditors by the Board of directors of a company is as per section 139(6)
