Steps For Company Registration in India

Company registration in India benefits startups offering them an advantage over those who have not registered. The of registering your company is complex and involves many compliances. However, you needn’t worry as long as you have Vakilsearch. Our professionals can help you with every step of the private limited company registration process.

Step 1: RUN Name Approval

The first step is to register your company's name. To reserve the company name, a request for approval of the company name must first be made to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). One or two names with business aims may be presented in the name approval application. One or two more names may be submitted if a name permission is declined. All name approval requests are typically approved by the MCA in less than 5 business days. Our experts will help you choose the best name for your company and help in registering it with the government.

Step 2: Directors' Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)

Regular signatures are not acknowledged by the MCA in India. A digital signature certified by an Indian certification authority must be used on all signatures for filings with the MCA. Therefore, before incorporation, digital signatures from the Directors are mandatory.

Vakilsearch will secure a DSC for the Directors from a recognised certifying body. The Directors must submit a copy of their identity documentation and successfully complete a video KYC process in order to receive a digital signature. The provided passport and other documents must be apostilled by a nearby embassy if the Director is a foreign national.

Step 3: Submitting the Company Incorporation Application

Once the digital signatures have been gathered, the incorporation application in SPICe form and all pertinent attachments may be submitted to the MCA. The company's Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA) are filed with the application for incorporation. The Incorporation certificate and PAN of the company are issued if the MCA deems the incorporation application to be complete and acceptable. The MCA typically accepts all incorporation petitions in less than five working days.

Private Limited Company Compliances

Once a company is registered in India, it must periodically maintain a number of compliances in order to avoid fines and legal action. After company registration, a company would need to comply with the following requirements, among others:

Auditor Appointment: Within 30 days of incorporation, every Indian company must appoint a practising, certified, and registered Chartered Accountant (CA).

Director DIN KYC: Each year, DIN KYC is required of everyone who holds a Director Identification Number (DIN), which is given during the incorporation process and verifies the phone number and email address on file with the MCA.

Commencement of Business: The shareholders of the company must deposit the subscription amount specified in the MOA within 180 days of incorporation, and the company must create a bank current account. Therefore, in order to receive a business incorporation certificate, the shareholders of a company that is to be established with a paid-up capital of ₹1 lakh must deposit ₹1 lakh into the company's bank account and file a copy of the bank statement with the MCA.

MCA Annual Filings: Every financial year, the MCA must get a copy of the financial statements from each company that is registered in India. A corporation that incorporates between January and March may elect to include the first MCA annual return in the annual filing for the following fiscal year. Forms MGT-7 and AOC-4 are the components of the MCA yearly return. The Directors and a working professional must digitally sign both of these documents.

Income Tax Filing: Each fiscal year, all businesses are required to submit an income tax return using form ITR-6. Regardless of the incorporation date, income tax filing must be completed for each financial year before the deadline. A director's digital signature must be used to digitally sign the company's income tax return.

Requirements to Start a Private Limited Company

Before a firm is incorporated, it must meet a specific set of conditions. The following are the conditions to be satisfied:

1. Directors and Members

As previously stated, a private limited corporation must demonstrate a minimum of two and a maximum of 200 members in order to become legally registered. The Companies Act of 2013 requires this as a legal necessity. The following requirements for directors should be met:

  • A DIN issued by the MCA should be carried by each director
  • One of the directors must be an Indian resident, which means they must have spent at least 182 days there in the previous calendar year.

2. The Business's Name

The choice of the company's name is an important one. Two factors must be considered by a private limited corporation when choosing a name for itself:

  • Name of the principal activity
  • Private Limited Company

3.Address of the registered office

The permanent address of the business's registered office must be submitted to the company registrar following the completion of the registration process. The primary location for conducting business and the location where all documentation is kept in the company's registered office.

4. Getting Additional Documents

Every business is required to acquire a DSC that is used to validate the legitimacy of documents submitted electronically. Additionally, credentials from these specialists are required in a business that hires professionals (such as secretaries, chartered accountants, cost accountants, etc.) for a variety of operations.
