Bangalore’s industries encompass a variety of heavy and light manufacturing, as well as high-tech service sectors. Industries like automobiles, mining, steel production, and cement making are common in Bangalore while IT services such as telecommunications, aerospace industry, biotechnology research & development (B&R), banking, and financial institutions also thrive in the city. Due to the availability of a highly skilled workforce, favorable economic framework, and easy accessibility to cutting-edge infrastructure, it is known as a start-up headquarters in India. Hence, Bangalore is a popular choice for private limited company registration amongst new entrepreneurs since it is home to many world-class tech companies and the fastest-growing city in India.

Why go for Company Registration in Bangalore?

For founders, it is important to conduct extensive research and analysis of the competitive landscape and the different types of business structures available before registering a company in Bangalore. While the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) governs the company registration process in India, one can go for registration of a Private Limited Company (Pvt Ltd), One Person Company (OPC), Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), or Public Limited Company depending upon the suitable structure and future business plan. OPC registration or LLP registration will be ideal structures for a close group of people with minimal external contribution. Whereas Pvt Ltd is considered most favorable due to features like ease in raising/borrowing funds from outsiders, accessibility to foreign parties, limited liability of owners, and clarity in management and ownership. Let’s take a look at the process, fees, and requirements for company registration in Banglore.

Requirements for company registration in Bangalore

Company registration in Bangalore is completely online and paperless. The following are the requirements for company registration:

  • The proposed company must have a minimum of 2 directors. And at least one director must be a permanent resident of India.
  • A minimum of 2 shareholders is a must.
  • The proposed company needs to have a registered office address in Bangalore.
  • The authorized capital of INR. 1,00,000 is a must. (Pro Tip: There is no limit on paid-up capital however it is advisable to keep the paid-up capital more than the face value of shares of the company.)
  • The company must have a unique name.

New company registration forms are filed online through the MCA portal. And the Central Registration Center (CRC) processes them after submission. Following are the steps to register a company in Bangalore:

Government Fees

While registering a company there are 2 types of government fees. Stamp duty is the first one which is based on authorized capital and the state of the company registration. And another one is MCA form filing fees which are as per slab based on authorized capital. Government fees start from INR. 2,020 for a private limited company with a minimum authorized share capital of INR. 1,00,000 in Bangalore. In case someone wants to apply for a particular name for a proposed company, fees of INR. 1,000 is applicable for RUN form filing. All the government fees are paid online on the MCA portal.  

Subsidiary Company Registration in Bangalore

Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) are instrumental to the economic growth and development of any country. Keeping the same in mind the Indian government allows NRIs and foreign nationals to invest in India by permitting 100% FDI through automatic routes in most industries. We see offshore offices of many MNCs in Bangalore due to the same reason. Some of the benefits of registering a subsidiary in Bangalore are permanent establishment in a resource-rich environment, easy and online registration process, strategic control over operations, and expansion with limited liability. NRIs or Foreign Nationals can register a new subsidiary private limited company following the same process as mentioned above in no time.
