The major affairs of the company are handled by the manager and hence he is entitled to receive some compensation for his efforts. This is termed Managerial Remuneration. The manager has to bring out the maximum potential of the employees while ensuring that the interests of the shareholders and other stakeholders are secured. MAXIMUM REMUNERATION As per section 197 of the Companies Act, the Company has certain limits on paying maximum remuneration, depending on whether he is working full-time or part-time. If the company has only one whole-time manager, he is entitled to a maximum remuneration of 5% of net profits. If there is more than one whole time manager, then the percentage increases to 10%. For part-time directors, the remuneration allowed is 1% of net profits (if there is a whole-time director present) and if no whole-time manager is present, then remuneration for a part-time director is 3%. Therefore, a company can only pay a maximum remuneration of 11% of net profits. A public company is allowed to pay remuneration in excess of 11% by : Passing a special resolution approved by the shareholders Subject to compliance with Schedule V conditions Remuneration can be paid to such managers who do not have any direct interest in the company and also possesses special knowledge and expertise along with a graduate-level qualification. PENALTY Any person who fails to comply with the provisions of managerial remuneration shall be punishable with a fine that can vary from Rs. 1 Lakh to a maximum of Rs. 5 Lakhs. However, Sec 197 applies to only public companies and hence private companies are free to pay managerial remuneration with no upper limit. 0 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Related Questions What are some examples of deferred revenue expenses?
