How to Register Company Online? - A detailed registration process


Company Registration in India will boost the progress of startups and provide an additional edge over those who have not registered. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs governs the company registration process with rules and regulations framed in accordance with the law.

  • Step 1: Application for DSC (Digital Signature Certificate).
  • Step 2: Apply for the DIN (Director Identification Number)
  • Step 3: Application for the name availability.
  • Step 4: Filing of the EMoa and EAOA to register private limited company
  • Step 5: Apply for the PAN and TAN of the company
  • Step 6: Issued certificate of incorporation by RoC with PAN and TAN
  • Step 7: Opening a current bank account on company name

Search a company before Company Registration


One of the primary steps in Company Registration is to ensure that the company name has not already been taken by another legal entity. We can run a company name search to check the availability of the particular name in India against the MCA and trademark database.

We recommend the businesses to come up with three to four alternative names during the approval stage of Private Limited Company Registration. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs will be the final authority to approve the name based on the availability rules and regulations.

If you are disappointed that a preferred name is taken, do remember that the name of your company doesn't have to be your brand name. However, if you're going to trademark your brand name, also check if it has already been trademarked at http://www.ipindia.gov.in/. If it has been trademarked, you would need a no-objection certificate from its owner to have it approved as your company's name.
