Checklist for Company Registration in India

Let’s discuss the minimum requirement or eligibility for Incorporation of Company in India. The checklist given below is for ready reference and the promoters must go through the same and ascertain their eligibility before proceeding with the Incorporation of company in India.
1. Minimum 2 Shareholder & 2 Directors

Shareholders are the co-owners of the company. They can either be individuals or non-individuals, Indian or foreign in origin. Directors, on the other hand, are responsible for controlling the management of the company and acts as its agent. They are appointed by the Shareholders of the Company. Only individuals can be appointed as directors, whether Indian or foreign in Origin.

2. Max 200 Shareholder and 15 Directors

The Companies Act caps the limit of shareholders in a Private Limited Company to 200. For counting the said number of shareholders the shareholding by present or ex-employee under ESOP scheme is not counted. The company can have a maximum of 15 directors, however in case more directors are required the same may be increased with the approval of the Registrar of Companies.

3. One director must be Resident in India

Out of all the directors appointed in a Private Limited Company, at least one should be a resident Indian. Under the Companies Act, a director is considered to be a resident Indian if he has resided for more than 120 days in India in the immediately preceding financial year. Prior to the 1st of April 2021, this limit was more than 182 days. However, in a notification dated 1st of February, 2021, the MCA amended the provisions of the Companies Incorporation Rules, to reduce this limit to more than 120 days. This notification, and hence, the altered limit became effective from the 1st of April, 2021.

4. New and Unique Name for Company

The name of a company is the perfect way to communicate its brand to the general public. So, the name must not only be unique, but must also ideally communicate the business activity of the company. or the industry that it belongs to very aptly. Moreover, there are several significant laws like the Companies Act, the Trademark Act, and the Names & Emblems Act that prescribe certain guidelines for naming a Private Limited Company. Precisely, the name must not be identical or closely resemble the name of an existing company / LLP / a Trademark. More importantly, it must not be misleading and, therefore, must not contain words that show the patronage of the Government.

5. A premises to maintain Registered Office

A Private Limited Company must be incorporated or registered with a valid office address. This is the address where all the correspondence and official communications for the company shall be addressed. Moreover, the company will have to maintain all its statutory documents, records and registers and this address only. The premises where the registered office is located can be rented or self-owned. It must be a fully-constructed and lockable premise on residential or commercial land.

Stepwise Company Registration Process in India

STEP 1 – Documentation & DSC
The Basic Documents of the Promoters (Directors or Shareholders) and Proof of the Registered Office are required to begin the process. The first thing that we do is to make the make the Digital Signature (DSC) of promoters as the application for incorporation of the company is filed electronically and signed with the DSC.
As discussed earlier, the new company name must be new and unique, complying with the guideline issued for name approval of the company. Ideally few names in order of preference should be filed in Spice Plus form at the time of Private Limited Company Registration online. However, to be doubly sure about the name availability, an advance application may be filed with the ROC in the prescribed RUN form only to obtain the Name Approval. Making a separate application in RUN is advisable when the promoters intend for a specific name for the company, however, it involves additional cost.
STEP 3 – Drafting of MOA & AOA
The Memorandum of Association is the constitution of the company, that defines the objects for which the company is incorporated. The articles of association (AOA) are the internal rules of the company. We help promoters to draft the MOA and in particular the Main Object of the company and the AOA, commensurate to the requirement of the companies act, of 2023.
STEP 4 – Filing SPICE Plus Form
To register a company, we need to file the SPICE Plus form to the ROC along with the prescribed attachments such as the promoter’s personal KYC documents, documents of the registered office address, MOA and AOA. The application is signed using a Digital Signature Certificate.
STEP 5 – Issue of Company Registration Certificate
After your SPICE Plus application is approved by the ROC, the procedure of Private Limited Company Registration online gets completed. As a conclusive proof of registration, the ROC issues a Certificate of Registration. The Certificate also contains CIN, and company registration number.

How to close a Private Limited Company?

As mentioned earlier, a company is the creation of law and has perpetual succession, meaning that it exists beyond the lives of its promoters. In case the company has to be closed for any reason, we have to first ascertain whether the company is an “Active Company” or an “Inactive/Defunct Company”. The approach to closing the company shall vary based on the above determination. Following is the brief method of closing a company based on its type.
Closure of an Inactive/Defunct Company (Striking-off by the ROC) Closure of an “Active Company” by NCLT
    To close a defunct or inactive company there is a simplified process, where the ROC based on the affidavit and indemnity bond of the directors struck off the company from the register of companies. To be eligible for simplified closure by filing the STK-2 application, the applicant company should fulfill the following criteria.
  • The company is Inactive and is not carrying any business.
  • The company has closed its Bank Account
  • The company has no Assets or Liabilities
An active company that has some business, employees, assets or liability may make an application to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). The process of closing an active company is complicated in comparison to closing an Inactive or defunct company. We at Setindiabiz provide end to end service to close the company.
