Step 1 : Obtaining Class 3 Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)
With the e-commerce boom, government agencies have adopted digital signature, and it is also a statutory requirement for many e-forms to be digitally signed by the authorised signatory. So individuals and entities need to obtain the digital signature. A digital signature certificate establishes the identity of the holder. It is like a PAN card or a passport and enables the holder to prove his identity.
Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) is affixed on documents submitted in electronic form by the authorised person. It ensures the security and authenticity of the documents submitted electronically. DSC is affixed on all the documents filed on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) portal. Online transactions such as Incorporation of company, Income Tax e-filing is validated using DSC.
The Controller of Certifying Authority (CCA) has appointed Certifying Authority (CA) for issuing DSC.
Step 2 : Director Identification Number (DIN) Validation
It is very important to check whether the proposed first directors of the company have a valid Director Identification Number (DIN). If the proposed first directors of the company have held directorships in any company before, then they must be having a DIN allotted to their name.
If none of the proposed directors have valid DIN, one can apply same on behalf of a maximum of 3 directors during the incorporation process through SPICE+ forms.
Step 3 : Form SPICE+ Part A Filing- Company Name Reservation
SPICe+ Part A represents the section wherein all details with respect to name reservations for a new company have to be entered. SPICe+ Part A can either be submitted individually for name reservation only or can be submitted together with SPICe+ Part B for both name reservation as well as incorporation and for availing other integrated services.
In case an applicant opts for reserving the proposed name first and file Part B of the SPICe+ form later, then a maximum of two names can be applied through SPICe+ Part A, out of which single name, as made available by Central Registration Centre (CRC), will be approved and reserved for 20 days from the date of approval. In case the entire incorporation application i.e. both SPICe+ Part A and B is being filed together then only one name can be entered in SPICe+ Part A.
Applicants are requested to ensure that the proposed name selected does not contain any word which is prohibited under Section 4(2) & (3) of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Rule 8 of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014. Users are also requested to read and understand Rule 8 of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014 in respect of any proposed name before applying for the same.
Applicants are requested to also check the Trademark search to ensure that the proposed name is not in violation of provisions of Section 4(2) of the Companies Act, 2013, failing which it is liable to be rejected.
It is not mandatory to attach documents while reserving names through Part A of Spice+. However, it would be mandatory to attach relevant documents and No Objection Certificates(NOCs) in Part A of SPICe+ only when a name which requires the approval of a Sectoral Regulator or NoC etc. if applicable, as per the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014, is being applied for. Please note that only one file is allowed to be uploaded as an attachment and the size of the file should not exceed 6MB in case of Part A SPICe+ and the overall limit of form size shall not exceed 6MB in case both Part A SPICe+ and Part B SPICe+ are filed together. In case of multiple attachments for Part A SPICe+, please scan all documents into a single file and upload the same.
The same user login ID which was used for reserving the name has to be used for submitting and uploading SPICe+ and other linked forms. This means that an approved name, reserved using Part A of SPICe+, from one Applicant ID at the MCA portal is not permitted to be filed in Part B of SPICe+ from another Applicant ID.
Step 4 : Form SPICE+ Part B Filing - Company Incorporation
Promoters can’t use any name as the name of their Company. The promoters have to check availability of their proposed name through the website of Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA portal). The proposed name should not be identical with the name of any existing company and shall be as per the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013. After checking the availability of the name, the promoters need to reserve the proposed name through Part A of SPICe+ service available at MCA portal.
In the name application, the promoters shall also give Summary of the objects to be pursued by the company on its incorporation. Two names can be proposed in the name application and if the names are denied by the authority then promoters can give two more names in resubmission of name application. The reservation of name is valid upto 20 days from the date of approval.
The registration cost depends upon the number of directors, initial share capital, the state where the company is incorporated.
