- Registrar of companies have jurisdiction over the matters of amalgamation,merger or division of a producer company while in case of private limited company court has the jurisdiction
- It can never be converted into a public company however it can be converted into a multi-state co-operative society.
- A producer company enjoys a separate legal entity, and offers the facilities of limited liability and perpetuity.
- Producer companies offer greater credibility as compared to that offered by unregistered organizations of agriculturists/farmers.
- Changes in the Board of Management of a producer company can swiftly be made just through filing few simple forms with the ROC concerned.
- Only a duly registered producer company is entitled to sell or own a property in its own name.
- A registered producer company is fully entitled to accept deposits from or give loans to its agriculturist members, at reasonable rates of interest.
- It is to be noted that though the IT Act does not per-se give any special benefits or exemptions to Producer Companies as such, but depending upon the kind of agricultural activity it carries on, certain tax benefits can be availed. For instance, if green tea leaves are grown and sold directly without any further processing, the income derived from such an activity is considered as agricultural income under the IT Act and such income is 100 % tax free, but if the green tea leaves are further processed and tea is manufactured only 60% of the income derived from such an activity is considered as agricultural income and the tax exemption can be availed only on the said 60% of such income. Thus, it is clear that the tax exemption to a producer company depends upon the activity it carries on.
