New Company Registration in Mumbai 


The Companies Act, 2013 governs the registration or incorporation and winding up of the Company. The process of registration of the company gives birth to a company and the company is treated as a separate legal entity. By the process of registration, the company can enjoy all the benefits conferred under Companies Act, 2013.


In India and in Mumbai, there are generally two types of companies: Private Limited Company and a Public Company.


Private Limited Company is most favoured form of company in Mumbai as it is flexible and requires fewer funds in comparison with the public company. To start as private limited company, the basic requirement is that there must be at least 2 members in the company and their objective must be legal whereas there must be at least 7 members to start a public limited company.


Importance of Company Registration in Mumbai 


The registration of companies is important due to following reasons:


1.       Evasion of personal risks: The registration of company disposes off the personal obligations. Personal assets cannot be put at risk; rather the liability is limited to the number of shares held in the company.

2.       Separate Legal Entity: By incorporation, a company gets its own identity and enjoys the benefits in its own name.

3.       Perpetual succession: The Company enjoys the right of perpetual succession as it has unlimited time span. Employees and members of the company may come and go, but the company exists until it is legally winded.

4.       Reputation: The registration of the company highlights its permanent nature and effective management which gives confidence to the customers, clients and other parties.

5.       Legal Protection: If the company gets incorporated, the name of the company is protected and nobody can have the similar name. Also, the unauthorised use of the company name is protected after registration.
