What is a Private Limited Company?

It is a type of Business Registration that offers limited liability to its shareholders. This is an excellent advantage as it immunizes the shareholders’ assets & limits their liability to the unpaid share capital.

But it also places some restrictions on the shareholders. Moreover, there should be a minimum of 2 & a maximum of 200 shareholders for creating a Private Limited Company.

It also enjoys the benefit of perpetual succession. This means, if any shareholder leaves the Company, the Business will go on as usual.

Is it suitable for Small Businesses?

Private Limited Registration can open the doors of multiple opportunities for the Business. By registering as a Private Limited Company, small Businesses can boost their credibility & scale-up their Business nationally & globally. As this form of registration is approved by MCA (Ministry of Corporate Affairs, it drives a lot of trust & credibility.

A Private Limited Company can help your Business stretch its wings & fly high!

This registration also makes the funding & loan approvals easy, giving your Business better room to grow.

But remember, every Business is different. So it is better to consult an expert before making any crucial decision.

Who is the Director of a Private Limited Company? Is there any special qualification required to become a director?

The Director is a critical position in a Private Limited Company. Their role can make or break the Business. E.g., any Managing Director is responsible for flawless Business operations & management of the firm.

There is no bar on the qualification to become a Director of a Private Limited Company.

He/she has to ensure that the Company is operating by staying compliant with the Government norm. In case of any fraudulent activity or the Managing Director will be held responsible.

What is DIN?

DIN refers to a Director Identification Number. This is a unique number allotted to the individual who intends to become the Director of any company. This DIN is valid for the life & the Director can use it for more than one Company. The DIN is issued by the MCA (Ministry of Corporate Affairs) on the Application.

To avail of the DIN, the individual will have to submit the Application and supporting documents & registration fees. Once the MCA finds all the Documents are correct, it will issue the DIN within 4 working days.

What is the Registered Office? Can it be changed later?

Every Private Limited Company must have a registered office. This is the place where all the documents & information of the Company are stored. It is also the place where the Company will hold its Annual General Meetings. The jurisdiction under which the Company will fall depends on the registered address. For e.g.if the registered Office of a Company is in Ahmadabad, it will fall under the Registrar of Company’s jurisdiction, Ahmadabad.

But no law mandates the Company to own the registered Office. The Company can own the registered Office, or it can also be a rented place.

In case if the Company wants to relocate its existing registered Office, it can be done at any time, easily. IT will have to submit the Application with other necessary documents to the MCA. The new address can be anywhere, whether in the same state or another; it doesn’t matter.
