Open a company in India is a great way to expand your business

Private Limited Company-registration is the best choice for start-up and large companies in India, as its investors preferred to prefer this type as the most preferred type of Company Registration


Types of Company Registration
  • Proprietorship
  • One Person Company Registration
  • Traditional Partnership
  • LLP (Limited Liability Partnership)
  • Private Limited company-registration

Proprietorship: –

An entity run by a single person and generally employed in traditional businesses. It’s more of a one-man-show which is not scalable beyond a certain point. Additionally, there is no statute or law which governs its registration and functioning it can be started by traditionally registering under GST (GST Registration) or registration under Shop and Establishment Act

One Person Company Registration: –

A company run by a single person who is also the shareholder and the director. However, it is always better to register as a Private Limited Company as more or less, both have the same taxation and compliance requirements, and a Pvt. Ltd. is not dependent only on one person for its existence.

Traditional Partnership: –

Has at least two people as partners. Businesses now prefer registering themselves as LLP’s. We DO NOT suggest registering as a Traditional Partnership Firm as it has Unlimited Liability and takes around a year to obtain the Incorporation Certificate.

LLP Registration: –

Like a Traditional Partnership Firm but with limited liability. It blends the benefits of a traditional firm (less regulations, more control), and of a corporate entity (limited liability of the partners).

Private Limited Company-Registration: –

Formed by at least two shareholders. As compared to an LLP, it has Equity shares instead of a Profit sharing ratio. However, it is a very compliance-heavy form of an entity. ‘Private’ denotes that it cannot invite the Public to purchase its Shares and ‘Limited’ denotes that the Liability of the Shareholders and Directors is Limited.
Setting up a Private limited company in India requires a approval from Registrar of Companies ( RoC ) under the juristriction Ministry of Corporate Affairs. We will help you with all paperwork, identify a local partner for you and kickstart your business within 7 days.
