WHAT IS DIRECTOR KYC?
DIR 3 KYC - A MANDATORY COMPLIANCE !!
From the Financial Year 2019-2020, as per the new MCA department guidelines, KYC is required to be filed every year, by every person who has a DIN (Director Identification Number). A DIN is a unique number that is assigned to a person who wants to associate himself/herself as a director of any legal entity or who is already an appointed director of a corporation. In this digital age, submitting an e-Form DIR-3 application is sufficient to receive a Director’s Identification Number or DIN. This is a one-time process for anyone interested in becoming a director of one or more business entities. All directors with a DIN will now be required to submit their KYC details annually in e-Form DIR-3 KYC, thanks to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs’ (MCA) decision to update its registration.
Every individual who is assigned a DIN as of 31st March of a financial year should complete his/her KYC on or before the 30th September of the following financial year to avoid the director KYC penalty fees.
WHY DIR 3 KYC IS REQUIRED ?
NECESSITY OF FILING DIN KYC FORM
The DIR-3 KYC e-form or Directors KYC as the name suggests, is introduced to collect information of all the directors associated to any legal entity, including their residential address, e-mail address, and present cell phone number. The directors’ information must be relevant to them, for example, the cell phone number must be updated with UIDAI. This measure was taken in order to increase data transparency. This will assist MCA in checking director accreditation and weeding out fake directorships.
Previously, the government has developed strike-off (Company dissolution) proceedings against over 3 lakh firms, affecting over 6 lakh directors and disqualifying their DIN. By implementing this new rule 12A, all directors and designated partners of all LLPs must update their DIN (Director Identification Number) to conform with the rule, regardless of whether their DIN is active or inactive, and directors with ineligible DIN.
ELIGIBILITY FOR DIN KYC FORM FILING
WHO IS REQUIRED TO SUBMIT E-FORM DIR-3 KYC?
According to the MCA notification, any director who received a DIN by or on March 31, and whose DIN is in authorised status must submit his KYC information to the MCA department failing of which will be liable for a DIR 3 KYC penalty. This procedure is also required for directors whose DIN have been disqualified.
From the Financial Year 2019-20 onwards, any director who has now been assigned a DIN on or before the ending of the financial year and whose DIN is in authorised status is required to file Director KYC form by the 30th September of the next financial year.
Directors with a DIN or Director Partner Identification Number (DPIN) before March 31, and directors given a DIN/DPIN by March 31, must file the e-Form DIR-3 KYC before September 30th of that year.
NOTE: Incase of non-filing of the DIR 3 KYC before the due date, late fees or penalty for director KYC will be charged.
CHECKPOINTS FOR COMPLETING THE DIR-3 KYC E-FORM
POINTS TO REMEMBER FOR DIR 3 KYC
1. While filling out the DIN KYC Form, each Director must provide their own personal cell phone number and email address. A one-time password or OTP will be used to verify this registered contact number and email address.
2. The second caution is that the director must use his own digital signature when submitting this DIR 3 KYC e-Form.
3. The Director KYC e-Form should also be approved by a practising Chartered Accountant, Company Secretary, or Cost and Management Accountant as the third test to guarantee that complete and accurate information is submitted.
CONCEQUENCES OF NON FILING DIR 3 KYC
PENALTY FOR NOT FILING DIR 3 KYC FORM
If a director who is required to file the DIR 3 KYC e-Form fails to do so by the 30th of September on the MCA portal, the department will record the director’s DIN as “Deactivated owing to Non-filing of DIR-3 KYC.” If the director wants to reactivate his DIN in the future, he can do so by filing the missing e-Form and incurring a late fee for DIN KYC of Rs 5,000. This fee must be paid by September 30th of year in which the e-Form DIR 3 KYC is to be submitted. The directors must file this form once a year.
