What is the importance of Compliance?

1. Employee Retention

Compliance helps in employee retention as employees tend to switch their workplace often if there is any difficulty they are facing due to its current work environment. If there is effective compliance that is taking place where employees are feeling safe, they have compensation for any mishappening, have various employees benefits and most importantly there is a positive work environment then it results in higher employee retention.

2. Competitive Advantage

A business model that follows a strict policy of complying with all the rules and regulations has a competitive advantage over the business that does not follow or follow fewer rules and regulations set by the governments. A customer, stakeholders and government are all attracted towards business that follows the rules and regulations. It also helps in establishing trust among all the parties and brings harmony and peace for a longer duration.

3. Reduced Legal Charges

The business has follows all the regulations also have fewer chances of paying any legal fee in form of penalties, fines, lawsuits or shutdowns. This, in turn, helps in reducing legal charges. Regulations that businesses have to follow are how products should be manufactured, how to manage employees, buying and selling of products and how to manage corporate social responsibility. These are all that helps in reduced legal charges as these activities are often rewarded in form of reduced penalties or fines and larger market share.

4. Better Relations with The Public

If you are doing business then the image of your business in the eyes of the public has a lot to do with its success. If any rules are not being followed by the enterprise and it regularly involves court cases and government interventions, the people start losing their trust and it can impact their finance. Eg- People had a lot of faith in Subrata Roy of Sahara but as soon as the SEBI intervened and it asked about the funding of the company, people started losing their trust. A regular intervention from the SEBI has also resulted in doubts amongst people. So, it's extremely important for a company to have better relations with the public.

It contains all the business activities of the company and helps to determine the financial position of the company. A lot of information like assets, profits and losses, etc can be seen by the annual returns. One of the advantages of ROC Filing is to determine the financial position of a company. It also helps in verifying the legitimacy of the company.

To check the reliability and validity of the company, updated annual filings are very important. Before that, Form MGT-7 must be filed within 60 days after the annual general meeting and Form AOC-4 is to be filed by a private limited company in 30 days with the statement of profit and loss account, balance sheet and the Director report.

*It completes reporting & regulation of companies and their directors & shareholders. It also administers government reporting of various matters which includes the annual filing of several documents.

*It's important to note that the Registrar of Companies plays an essential role in facilitating & fostering business culture.

Liquidation of a Company

The process of Liquidation involves bringing the activities of a business to an end and to distribute its assets to people who claim for it. It occurs only when the company is insolvent which means that it can not pay its obligations when they are due. When the company is no longer functional, its assets are used to pay shareholders and creditors based on the priority of their claim. The term liquidation can also be used to refer to the selling of goods that have poor performance and are sold at a much lower cost than what they usually cost. A company is usually liquidated when it is not in a state to continue.

What are the benefits of Liquidation?

Minimise Debt Repayments

When you liquidate your company, it can help in minimising the debt repayments. Although, it is still required to cover the cost of the company’s Statement of Affairs and creditors. However, all the other liquidation costs like debt or outstanding creditors will b met through the sale of assets of the company. This process makes liquidation a cost-effective option. The other costs of restriction and redundancy will be further met by an insolvency practitioner. The responsibility of the insolvency practitioner is staff redundancies and the payment related to it as well as cancellation of any leases or other long-term liabilities. Unless there is no personal guarantee given by the owner or it is a director’s loan then it need not be settled by your shareholders.

Staff Can Claim Redundancy Pay

Your staff can claim redundancy pay or any uncollected wages and outstanding holiday pay if you decide to liquidate your company. Your insolvency partner will go ahead and lead in terms of making staff redundant. Your staff members can claim their redundancy pay when the assets of the company are being sold. If the assets are not enough, the staff can claim their pay from the National Insurance Fund. Even as a director, you can claim for your redundancy through the government if the amount is huge and you paid yourself via PAYE at a very reasonable rate.

Cancel Lease Arrangements

Companies that opt for liquidation not only just minimise their payments but also prevent any further payments going forward. According to law, it is allowed that any lease or hire purchase agreements will be withdrawn once you decide to liquidate your company. It also means that you no longer have to pay any further payments that were initially a part of your original arrangement. IF there is any amount due to your leasing company creditor then it will be taken care of by your appointed insolvency partner. At Taxudyog, we help you cancel lease arrangements by providing you with the industry experience that we have. It can sometimes be challenging to withdraw these arrangements but with the right help, it is easy to do so.

Avoid Court Processes

when you voluntarily choose to liquidate the company, you avoid court processes. The process may include petitions from the courts and it can help you develop a good image in the eyes of the public. It will give the impression that the liquidation was a company choice rather than a hostile takeover from the result of creditor action. When the legal obligation kicks in, it gets very difficult for the business as a lot of time and investments drain out in the legal proceedings. Further, the image of the owner and company is tarnished in front of the public and it comes in the way of starting again or starting another business.

Alleviated Pressure From The Creditors

When you are running your business, you might often feel pressure from the creditor’s side. Liquidation helps in alleviating pressure from the Creditors.  One of the main parts of the job description of the Insolvency Practitioner involves communicating directly with the creditors on behalf of the company’s estate. This can be a huge relief for directors who have been receiving angry phone calls and threatening letters from creditors’ side. At Taxudyog, we make sure that you get legal protection if the need arises.
