Unfortunately I forgot to check the status after that.

But today when I checked the status I found it was rejected due to digital signature verification failed..
Message: Affix valid DSC.

Unfortunately I noticed it today.

Can you please tell me what can be done now.
 What is the Fine amount etc.. Is the any penalty.

Thank you

It is suggested to file the form today with late fees. Penalty can be imposed later after issuing SCN.

I'm sorry to hear that your MCA LLP Form-8 for FY 21-22 was rejected due to a digital signature verification failure. In such cases, there are a few steps you can take to rectify the situation:

  1. Rectification of the Digital Signature:

    • Ensure that you have a valid and updated digital signature certificate (DSC) with the necessary cryptographic tokens.
    • Check if your DSC has expired or if there are any issues with it. If so, you may need to renew or replace your DSC.

  2. Resubmission of Form-8:

    • Once you have resolved the issue with the digital signature, you can rectify the rejected form.
    • Make the necessary corrections to the form and affix the valid DSC during the resubmission process.
    • Be sure to review the form for any other errors or missing information before submitting it again.

  3. Late Filing Fee and Penalties:

    • The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) may impose a late filing fee for forms submitted after the due date.
    • As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, the late filing fee for Form-8 (LLP Annual Return) was Rs. 100 per day of delay.
    • It is important to note that penalty fees or regulations may have been updated since then, so it is recommended to refer to the latest guidelines or consult with a professional to get the most accurate information regarding any penalties or fees.
