Additional Important Compliances

  • Register for GST (if applicable):
  •  You might have applied for GST registration during your company incorporation through SPICE forms at the MCA. However, due to occasional technical issues, the GST registration might be delayed or not happen automatically. To get the benefits of GST ITC on the initial expenses spent on purchases etc., it's advisable to make a separate GST registration application.
This separate application process is straightforward and requires basic documents like your rental agreement, a recent electricity bill, and a receipt for the latest BBMP tax payment. Don't wait for the MCA registration to come through – get your GST is up and running quickly

Compliance with PF ESI

Similar to GST, you might have registered for EPFO and ESIC during company incorporation through SPICE forms at the MCA.


This registration generally remains active. However, it's important to note that you'll need to start contributing to EPFO only when your employee count meets the minimum threshold


Here's where things get more nuanced. While the MCA registration applies, there's an additional step if you don't have the minimum number of employees (10 for factories, 20 for others). In such cases, you need to inform the ESIC to mark your account as dormant. This dormancy status typically lasts for 6 months, after which you must file NIL returns with ESIC to stay compliant Need Help Navigating EPFO & ESIC Compliance? Contact us  for a smooth transition.

Employer PT Enrollment payment (Within 30 Days)

Just like appointing an auditor, PT employer enrollment payment is another important step after registering your company. You typically have 30 days to complete this process.

Enquiring about PT Enrollment payment

While you might have applied for PT during company incorporation through SPICE forms, it's advisable to check with the Karnataka PT department to confirm your enrollment number and any further steps required.

First Year PT Payment

Once you have the PT enrollment number, you'll need to remit PT for the first year as per the due date set by the Karnataka PT department.

PT payment after December?

If you registered your company after December of a particular year, you're typically eligible for an exemption until March 31st of the following year. However, it's always recommended to double-check with the Karnataka PT department for the latest exemption rules. Launched your Pvt.

Prakasha & Co has been a lifesaver for me when it comes to my tax dispute and filings with IT office. They are always very responsive and helpful whenever I have any questions or issues, I recently had an issue with my sister business GST filings, and they were able to quickly identify the issue and help me resolve it. They really go above and beyond to make sure their clients are taken care of.
