Each and every one in India has a dream to start a business, there raises a question how much will it cost to incorporate a private limited company? To move forward with this dream and make it reality everyone wants to start up with a new business; there exist a company registration in India. Every single penny depends on how much professionals you make involve into it during the time of incorporation process. Through the incorporation of a company everyone can go head to start a new business in a legal way, where you are not only provided an infrastructure of the growth but also the assistance from the government side which helps you to go furtherance.

The Cost of registration of a new company relies on the nature, private or public limited company and one of the major factor which lies on is the authorized capital. For a private limited company with minimum authorized capital of Rs 1 L it may be between Rs. 10 K to Rs 20 K relying upon the location, area and the service provider. Now a days a company can be incorporated through e filing also by the adding the digital signatures of the subscribers by including the computerized marks of the endorsers of the Memorandum and Articles of Association. 

More than the simplicity of incorporation, the cost of compliance with the statutory customs will be at least about Rs 10K consistently every year, regardless of whether the exchanges are inconsequential. The delay in compliance may build the cost up to multiple times as extra charges. So remember the exact need for incorporating a company and ensure that you can consent to the statutory customs regardless of whether the business ends up being awful. Further, you can in any case do the business as a restrictive concern or as an association with negligible consistence necessities. Further, you can still do the business as a proprietary concern or as a partnership with minimal compliance requirements. Many times people who have come to me for incorporating a company have decided not to do so after understanding the complexities involved in the statutory compliance, particularly for small businesses.

If you want to register your private limited company within minimum requirements then the cost of company registration will be less. The cost of company registration will go up with the increase in authorized share capital. 

Cost of company registration depends upon the some basic factors that affect the cost which as follows:-

  • Initial authorized share capital
  • Number of directors 
  • Stamp duty 
  • Professional fee which is been charged by the Chartered accountant/ Company Secretary 

Registration of the company is not possible without the help of the CA/CS. Where ever you register your company, for the first three factors, cost will be the same with the only difference in the stamp duty charges (here the difference will be very less).

The major difference to the cost of company registration in case of a private limited company will depend on the professional fee which is chargeable by a Chartered accountant or CS.
