8. Net Worth of Company:
Net Worth as per the latest audited balance sheet preceding the date of the return. As per language of e-form DPT -3 “Net Worth as per the latest audited balance sheet preceding the date of the return”.
Ground of Discussion:
As per Rule 16 Every company….. file with the Registrar, a return in Form DPT-3……. furnish the information contained therein as on the 31st day of March of that year duly audited by the auditor of the company.
Therefore, one can opine that it is very clear by language of Law that figures of Net worth calculation should be last audited financial.
e.g. DPT-3 filed for 31st March, 2020 then audited net worth figure should be related to date 31st March, 2019.
