Winding up of a company is defined as a process by which the life of a company is brought to an end and its property administered for the benefit of its members and creditors. A tedious, but very necessary, procedure that can even take over a year to complete. A liquidator is appointed to realise the assets & properties of the company. After payments of the debts, is any surplus of assets is left out they will be distributed among the members according to their rights. Winding up does not necessarily mean that the company is insolvent. A perfectly solvent company may be wound up by the approval of members in a general meeting.
A private limited company is an artificial judicial person and requires various compliances like appointment of Auditor, regular filing of income tax return, annual return filing and more. Failing to maintain compliance for a Company could result in fines and/or debarment of the Directors from incorporating another Company. Therefore, if a private limited company has become inactive and there are no transactions in the company, then it is best to wind up the Company. To enable inactive private limited companies to quickly close or wind up, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has introduced Fast Track Exit Mode - an easier way to close inactive companies at a cheaper cost with lesser formalities.
