Factors Include in Company Registration Fees

In the registration of a company, several factors are included in the fees. These factors are as follows:

The pricing of DSC includes the cost of a medium, the cost of issuance of DSC and the renewal cost after the period of validity. 

 

The company representatives and professionals required to obtain DSCs are free to procure the same from any one of the approved Certification Agencies as per the MCA portal. The issuance costs to each Agency vary and are market-driven.

Stamp Duty for MoA and AoA

This stage involves a stamp duty for the Memorandum of Association (MoA) and Article of Association (AoA). These documents define the company’s objectives, rules and regulations and once this document is drafted. It has to be stamped by the public notary for which stamp duty charges and notary fees must to paid. Companies getting incorporated through SPICe+ with an Authorised Capital of up to INR 15,00,000 would continue to enjoy a ‘Zero Filing Fee’ concession.
