5 simple steps to register a subsidiary company in India

Subsidiary companies in India can be registered in 12 business days and completely online.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to register a subsidiary in India:

  1. Choose a business name: Choose a unique name for your subsidiary that reflects the business’s brand and identity. Ensure that the name is not already in use by another company.
  2. Determine the entity type: Decide on the type of entity you want to register your subsidiary as, such as a private limited company, limited liability partnership, or branch office. Generally most of the companies register as a Privte Limited company
  3. Obtain Director Identification Number (DIN) and Digital Signature Certificate (DSC): The directors of the subsidiary must obtain a DIN and DSC, which are used to sign electronic documents.
  4. File the incorporation documents: File the incorporation documents, including the Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA), with the Registrar of Companies (ROC). The MOA outlines the company’s objectives and purposes, while the AOA defines the rules and regulations for the company’s internal management.
  5. Verify the incorporation application: The ROC will review the incorporation application and may request for clarification or additional information, if necessary. Once the application is approved, the ROC will issue a Certificate of Incorporation.
  6. Open a current bank account: Open a current bank account in the name of the subsidiary to conduct business transactions.
  7. Obtain necessary licenses and permits: Depending on the type of business, the subsidiary may require licenses and permits from various government authorities.
  8. Comply with labor laws: The subsidiary must comply with various labor laws, including the payment of minimum wages, employee benefits, and safety regulations.
  9. File annual returns: The subsidiary must file annual returns with the ROC and income tax returns with the Income Tax Department.

By following these steps, you can successfully register your subsidiary in India and start your business operations. It’s important to note that this is a general guide and the specific requirements may vary depending on the state and industry in which you are operating.
