A Description of ROC functions
It is the ROC that is responsible for registering a company (also known as incorporation) in the country.
The department is responsible for the regulation and reporting of public companies and their shareholders and directors, and it also handles government reporting of several matters, including the filing of numerous documents each year.
Company registrars are integral to fostering and facilitating the business culture.
In our country, every new company has to be approved by the ROC before it can operate. The ROC issues an incorporation certificate that serves as conclusive evidence of a company's existence. As soon as a company is incorporated, it cannot cease to exist unless it is struck by the records of the registrar.
The Registrar of Companies can also request supplementary information from any company, among other functions. With the prior approval of the court, it could search the premises of the business and seize its accounts.
It is also possible for the Registrar of Companies to petition for the winding up of the company.
How Registrars of Companies (ROC) Register Companies
A company cannot exist by itself. After several statutory requirements have been met, it requires a certificate of incorporation issued by the Registrar of Companies. Several documents must be submitted to the Registrar of Companies by the promoters as part of the statutory procedure. As part of the required documents are the Memorandum of Association (MoA), Articles of Association (AoA), pre-incorporation agreement for appointing directors or managing directors, and the statement of an authorized person confirming compliance with registration requirements.
The ROC inputs the company’s name in the company register and issues a certificate of incorporation after authenticating the documents. A certificate of commencement of business is also issued by the Registrar with the certificate of incorporation. Obtaining this certificate before starting a business is a requirement for public limited companies.
