Many a times, during GST Audit, Preventive or gathering GST Intelligence, we need a company's financial documents such as Balance Sheets, Profit and Loss account, Director's report, Auditor's report etc.

In case of Public Limited company, the financials will be available online on the company's web page usually in Investor Relations section. For Private Limited companies such records are not publicly available but they can be downloaded from MCA website by paying a small fee of Rs. 100/- per year per company.

Once we try to put them in cart, it asks for login, but when we click to login, the page gets invalid and does not respond. If I try to login first and then click on view public documents, it automatically logs out. Please suggest how to download annual returns if this is the case.

On MCA website these issues are common. In my experience almost 50% of the times it does not work as intended. So you have to keep on trying at regular time intervals and it will work one of these times. In case it is urgent and you can't wait, I would suggest you to use Also, first balance sheet is provided for free on tofler after you create a new account.
