Amendment to Schedule V of the Companies Act, 2013

The MCA has, by way of a notification dated September 21, 2016 (‘Schedule V Notification’), amended Schedule V of the Companies Act, 2013 (‘Companies Act’) which prescribes certain conditions for the payment of remuneration by a company having no profits or inadequate profits to its managerial personnel, without approval of the Central Government. The Schedule V Notification has amended the limits and conditions prescribed under Schedule V by: (i) doubling the erstwhile yearly remuneration payable; and (ii) removing the requirement for Central Government approval for payment of remuneration to managerial personnel in excess of the prescribed limits, provided that such managerial personnel meet certain qualification criteria.
