Register Company in India

Why are investors keen on registering a company in India? Because it is among the world’s fastest growing economies in the world. And thanks to the sheer size of the market, there’s plenty of opportunity to be had for investors venturing into this region.

 

Entering the Indian Market

For foreign investors who are keen on registering a company in India, there are two ways to go about this:

  1. To register a company in India as a new business
  2. To register a company in India as a branch or liaison office of an existing business (the business is already established in the investor’s home country)

 
When it comes to registering a business in India, incorporation of a private limited company is the fastest and the easiest way to go about it. Incorporating a private limited company as a wholly-owned subsidiary of a foreign company or joint venture company is not just the fastest way, but also the easiest and cheapest entity strategy for investors who are not keen to get caught up in the unnecessary delays registering a company might bring.

When selecting a location to register and begin a business in India, compare the local laws, government incentives, local infrastructure and local workforce before making a decision. Beginning a business is a big huge change which is going to cost a lot of money, whether you’re a big business or small business, and you would ideally want to avoid making mistakes that could end up losing you money.

 

What are the requirements involved to register a company in India?

Registering a company in India as a private limited company would require a minimum of two investors and two shareholders. Without these components, you will not be able to proceed with your business registration.

A physical address is also required for this type of business entity. Therefore, the best thing to do before even registering a company in India is to first do a location scout and determine where best you would like your business to be set up.

The business laws in India would require that for the business incorporation to take place, at least one director of the company must be both an Indian citizen and a resident of the country. Foreign nationals who are registering a business in India must submit a copy of their passports during the application process.

All copies of the original documents for the business application must also be notarized to be considered. Once these steps have been completed, investors would then be required to:

  • File the proposed name of the company for approval to the Registrar of Companies
  • Get a Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association
  • Pay the stamp duties
  • File all incorporation documents and forms
  • Acquire the certificate of incorporation
  • Acquire an official company seal

 

Beginning a new business can be a lot of work, and starting a new one in a new country where it’s unfamiliar territory can be even more work. Before embarking on the journey to begin a new business in India, be sure that you’re ready to face the challenges that will lie ahead.
