There are four main steps involved in company formation. If you are curious to know about company formation for your studies or personal reasons, here are the four significant steps:

Step # 1 Company Promotion

This is the most critical step when it comes to company formation. A business comes into existence as a result of the efforts of an individual or group of individuals or an institution. The process of company promotion starts with the development of an idea and ends when that idea is converted into action.

Step # 2 Company Registration

There is a lot of documentation, paperwork, interactions with people, memoranda, statements, and other processes involved. Company registration brings a company into existence. A company is properly formed only when it is registered under the Companies Act.

Following are the important documents required to be filed with the Registrar of Companies.

  • Memorandum of Association
  • Articles of Association
  • List of Directors
  • Written consent of the Directors
  • Notice of the Address of the Registered Office
  • Statutory Declaration

Step # 3 Certificate of Incorporation

After all the necessary paperwork, the Registrar will issue a certificate known as the Certificate of Incorporation, it helps to confirm that the company is legal.

Step # 4 Certificate of Commencement of Business

After receiving the Certificate of Incorporation, you can now start operating your company.

For a private company, you can start operating your company once you receive the Certificate of Incorporation.

But for a public company, you can start operating your company only after getting the certificate of commencement of business.
