How to Register a Private Limited Company

The most prevalent and popular kind of legal corporate entity in our nation is the Private Limited Company. As per the compliance and regulatory guidelines of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the private limited company registration is governed by the Companies Act, 2013 and Companies Incorporation Rules, 2014.

In addition to the eligibility, mandatory documents, and legal formalities as rolled-out time to time, the applicant wishing for pvt ltd company registration has to apply for several documents.

Let’s have a look at those requirements:

  1. Apply for DSC (Digital Signature Certificate)

To apply for the digital signature certificate, the applicant must fill an application form whose details will be verified by the certifying authority. Photo ID proof and address proof will also be required for getting your digital signatures.

With the e-commerce at its peak, government agencies have adopted digital signature, and it is also a statutory requirement for many e-forms to be digitally signed by the authorized signatory. So individuals and entities need to obtain the digital signature, which is valid as a legal instrument.

In general, it takes around a week to get your digital signature.

2. Apply for DIN (Director Identification Number)

A unique 8-digit, Director Identification Number, allotted by the central government, is a number assigned to a director of any organization. To get the DIN, there are three different forms to be filled in three different situations.

SPICe Form: For the designation of a new director in a new company, the allotment of DIN is done through SPICe form.

DIR-3 Form: Any person aiming to be the director of an already existing company, shall get the unique DIN through this form.

DIR-6 form: If any changes are required in particulars of the director, then DIR-6 form is needed to be filled and get the changes as per the needs.

Before filing for the incorporation, a unique name is required. For the purpose, Directors must submit an application asking to reserve a specific name for the Pvt Limited Company registration through e-Form INC — 1. The Directors must ensure that an appropriate form is filled. One single application can contain a maximum of 6 different names, ranked in order of their preference along with why the name is a good fit for the company.

4. File the e-MOA and e-AOA to register ​a private limited company
