What is Private Limited Company Registration?

Before you opt for any business entity, it's significant to identify which business form will be the best suited for you according to your need and resources. Experts say that Private Limited Company is the best business entity for every start-up. If we believe the stats, almost 93% of start-ups and entrepreneurs in India register their company as Private Limited.

There are several reasons why start-ups are more inclined towards private limited company registration  when compared to others. It offers multiple benefits such as ease of formation, limited liability, free transfer of shares, easy to raise funds, etc.

Hence, if you wish to register your company as Private Limited, then you need to register it under the Companies Act, 2013. Not only the private company but every company is registered under Companies Act, 2013 and governed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).

Is it Possible to Register your Private Limited Company Online?

Yes, you can now easily apply for company registration online. You are just required to visit the MCA's web portal, find the company incorporation option and begin the process.

However, we still suggest you to take the help of professionals. This smoothens the process as it will provide you MOA (Memorandum of Association), AOA (Articles of Association) and several other documents required at the time of company registration. Such documents are really hard to prepare at your own end, hence, choosing a professional for company incorporation would be a wiser option.

Not just one or two but there are numerous reasons why you should go for private limited company registration. Let’s find out what they are:
