The Indian IT sector is one of the largest sectors in the world, and it has grown exponentially over the last decade.
Moreover, it caters to several industries, including banking and financial services, insurance, manufacturing, retail, telecommunications and public services.
As the industry is becoming popular, it becomes more and more important to register it.
It is important to register an IT company because it gives you the opportunity to provide better services to your clients.
You can also get a lot of benefits from registering an IT company, such as increased profit, lower taxes, and more opportunities.
In addition, registering an IT company is not as difficult as you think.
Here is the step-by-step process to register an IT Company:
There are many reasons why you should get in touch with an expert for the IT company registration process.
The most important thing is that you can save a lot of time and money.
Besides, you might not know the different types of business structures, how they work and which is best for your company.
And if you don't know it, you may make mistakes when filling out the application.
As a result, it could lead to your application being rejected.
Therefore, get in touch with an expert by filling out the form on your right.
An expert can advise you on what type of registration is best for your IT company. Also, they can help you with filling out the forms correctly.
Moreover, they will also make sure that you are not missing any mandatory licenses or compliances.
Choosing your company name is an important step in the process of registering an IT company.
The name you choose will identify your business. Thus, it needs to be memorable, unique and easy to spell.
It should also reflect what you do so that potential clients can find you more easily.
If you are struggling to pick the best name for company registration, here are some suggestions:
Another way to find a good company name is by brainstorming with your team.
You can also use tools like Google Adwords Keyword Tool to help you come up with ideas for an IT Company.
Choose a company name that is not too generic or too specific.
You must also be careful that your company name does not infringe on another company’s trademark.
For this purpose, our team of experts will conduct exhaustive research on your suggested names.
After that, we will apply for the name reservation application with the MCA.
The name approval takes approx 48-72 hours and once approved it is valid for 15 days.
Therefore, make sure to apply for company registration with the reserved name within the 15 days time period.
To apply for registration, share the following documents with your assigned RM:
Address Proof of Office Premises
Identity Proof of Owners
Make sure that the documents you submit are up to date and that all the information is correct.
The information in these documents will be used to register your IT company. Hence it will also be on the Certificate of Incorporation.
In order to register a company, you must have a Digital Signature Certificate.
It is a document that proves your identity and the authenticity of your company.
For this purpose, we will apply for the Class 3 DSCs for the directors.
All the forms submitted during the IT company registration process must be signed using the DSC of authorized persons.
After registering the DSC, our team will apply for the DIN (Director's Identification Number).
DIN is a unique 11-digit number assigned to directors of companies.
The number is used to identify the director and provide information about the company/s they work in.
