The steps involved in the procedure for Section 8 company registration have been mentioned below.
STEP 1 – Documentation for Section 8 company registration
Before beginning the process of incorporation of section 8 company, you must first arrange all the necessary documents so that the process for Section 8 company registration can be carried out without any hassle or hindrances. You must ensure that all the documents prescribed for section 8 company registration are available, as inadequate and inaccurate documentation can lead to the complete rejection of your application for online section 8 company registration. A list of all the documents required for incorporation of section 8 company have been provided in the section below.
STEP 2 – Select Company name
The name of section 8 companies needs to be distinctive and convey the organization’s identity and main line of operation. Additionally, it must adhere to the legal requirements that establish the company name’s eligibility. A company name cannot be the same as the name of an already existing company/LLP, an applied or a registered trademark. The name can also not contain words that indicate government’s patronage or are deemed undesirable by the Central Government.
STEP 3 – Reserve Company name
You can submit an application to the Central Registration Center using either the RUN (Reserve Unique name) application or PART A of the SPICe+ application to reserve the company’s name. The proposed names will be closely examined by the Registrar for its eligibility and availability. After the registrar is satisfied that any one of the names proposed is valid and available, he shall reserve the company’s name with it.
STEP 4 – Filing of SPICe+ form for Section 8 company registration
The SPICe+ form is divided into two parts. You can use the 1st part to reserve the name of your company. The 2nd part of the form contains the application for section 8 company registration along with 10 other related services. The entire form can be filled and submitted to the ROC along with the required documents prescribed for section 8 company registration online. The form is signed using a Class 3 DSC of the director who has been authorized to sign the SPICe+ application for Section 8 company registration.
STEP 5 – Issue of Certificate of Section 8 Company Registration
The ROC will register the section 8 company and provide it a certificate of incorporation as a conclusive proof of its registration after confirming the authenticity of the information provided in the application for company registration. In order to provide the registered company a unique identity, the Registrar also assigns a CIN number to the section 8 company. After the company receives both these documents, the procedure for incorporation of Section 8 company effectively gets completed.
