Private Limited Company Registration

Introduction Company Registration

A Private Limited Company is a privately run business that is one of the most popular ways to start a business in India. Private limited company registration in India is governed by the Companies Act 2013. 

As per Section 2(68) of the Act of 2013, a private company is one that has a minimum paid-up capital and an article that restricts the right to transfer its shares, except in the case of a One Person Company. Reach Today!

According to the 2013 Act, a private company must have a minimum of two members and a maximum of 200 members. If a private limited company faces financial difficulties, its shareholders are not required to sell their personal assets, implying that they should have limited liability.

A private limited company exists indefinitely. A private limited company continues to exist even if its members die or go bankrupt.

SPICe Type (Simplified Proforma for Incorporating Company Electronically)
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has recently introduced the “Simplified Proforma for Incorporating Company Electronically” SPICe Form INC-32 (company registration form).
