Strike off Section 8 Companies

Strike off Section 8 Companies in Jaipur.


Ideally, anybody operating a not-for-profit corporation should register it under Section 8 of the Companies Act 2013. A company may not add the phrases limited liability or joint stock company after the keyword of the company once it has been registered under Section 8 as a public or private company. A partnership company can also become a member of the Section 8 Company. It is often difficult for these companies to wind up the company because the company has a license to operate a charitable company, this license must be surrendered by converting into a company other than a Section 8 Company.

Different Types of Strike-off Section 8 Companies

The two categories of strike off Section 8 companies include:

Strike Off by ROC

The Registrar of Companies issues a notice in Form STK-1 (Removal of Names of Companies from the Registrar of Companies) to the Companies and their Directors. The purpose of this notice is to inform the relevant companies of the intention to remove their names from the records and to request that they appoint their representatives and provide the necessary paperwork within thirty days of the date that they receive this notice.

Strike off by Company

After paying off its liabilities, a company has the option of applying in E-Form STK-2 to the Registrar of Companies. A special resolution can be passed to accomplish this, but it needs to be supported by 75% of the members.

Advantages of Striking off Section 8 Companies

The key benefits of winding up Section 8 companies in India are

By registering under Section 8, a company undertakes to comply throughout its existence with the ever-changing compliance under the Companies Act 2013. This can pose problems for companies that do not have effective governance to meet these obligations. As a result, many companies have opted to strike out to avoid this burden.

Running a business without generating revenue incurs significant costs compared to the process of winding up a company. For a Section 8 company that is dormant or lacks any activities, demerger appears to be a viable and cost-effective option.

A company that fails to meet its compliance requirements within a specified time frame often faces significant penalties and fines. In serious cases, these penalties can even disqualify directors from holding office in other companies. An out-of-service condition can also lead to such unfavorable conditions. Delisting the company is becoming the preferred solution to mitigate this problem.
