Private Limited
Company Registration

As an entrepreneur, it is important to consider key factors while choosing the entity type. More than 90% of the companies incorporated in India follow the Private limited company business structure. It is one of the most preferred business models not only by growing start-ups in India but also by VCs, Angel Investors and banks. The reason is that funds can be easily raised from private investors. Few individuals go for One Person Company (OPC) registration as it is also a private limited company, which is ideal for individuals who do not want to share ownership. Private Limited company registration in India has no minimum capital required to register a company.

Why to Register a Private Limited Company?

There are several reasons to register a private limited company. It establishes separate legal identities and enhances credibility by being registered as a corporate entity. The top reasons include:

Better credibility in the market

Private Limited Company is a famous business structure. Government agencies, corporate customers and vendors prefer to deal with this type of business structure instead of proprietorship or normal partnerships. Even investors prefer Private Limited Companies as they are well structured. And it is easy to exit from a private limited company.

Limited Liability

The owner’s liability stays limited and there is limited liability protection to the director’s personal assets.

Easy to raise funds

Unlike LLPs and OPCs, with Pvt. Limited company business structure, it is easy to raise funds and loans through banks, Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists.

Easy to expand

Private companies can be easily converted into public companies.

Procedure for Company Registration

Obtain DSC (Digital Signature Certificate)

The first step to register a private limited company is to obtain the DSC of the directors and subscribers to MOA. DSC is mandatory for all the directors in the company. DSC is used to sign e-forms to ensure the security and authenticity of the e-forms.

The documents needed for Digital Signature Certificate are:

  • Passport size photo
  • Self-attested address proof
  • Self-attested PAN card

DIN stands for Director Identification Number. DIN is assigned by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and the number is allotted for a lifetime. This unique number is mandatory for a director, who is to be appointed in any company.

The documents required for application of DIN are:

  • Passport size photo
  • Self-attested address proof
  • Self-attested PAN card

Reservation of Name

The next concern is how to register a company name. It is critical that you follow the rules set by the Registrar of Companies (ROC) while suggesting a name for your new Private Limited Company.

Standard Format is Unique name plus Descriptive name plus Private Limited

Unique name

Descriptive name

The descriptive name refers to the type of business you are dealing with. For example, consulting.

Search a Pvt. Ltd company registration name availability

We run a search to check the availability of the specific company name in India against the MCA and trademark database. Our primary focus in company registration in India is to ensure that the company name has not already been taken by another legal business. That is why we recommend businesses to come up with three to four alternative names during the approval stage.

Check these things while considering a name
  • Choose a unique name
  • If there is an existing trademark, it is not possible to register your company name.
  • Do not use abbreviations in the name
  • Ensure that the name is not generic
  • Do not include the country’s name

Certificate of Incorporation

After the name is reserved for your company, you can apply for a certificate of incorporation by filing SPICe forms (MOA and AOA). MOA stands for Memorandum of Association of Company where it prescribes the scope of operations of the company. AOA stands for Articles of Association where it states how the company will be carrying its operations. Once MOA and AOA are approved, you will get an incorporation certificate.
