Every entrepreneur will agree that the procedure of incorporating a Company can be tedious and cumbersome despite the necessity of the steps involved. Even though a Company can now be incorporated online as well as offline, the steps remain the same.

The government of India has taken a significant step in easing the procedure of incorporation of a Company. On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, the government launched SPICe which is a simplified proforma for incorporating the Company electronically.

Ministry of Corporate Affairs has simplified the procedure by introducing the filing of pre-dated Memorandum or Articles of Association electronically. It will further simplify the earlier procedure of incorporating a Company using form Inc-29. As per the latest update, earlier forms may be replaced with newer SPICe form Inc-32.

There are certain features of SPICe that are as follows:

  • Simplified and completely digital form of Company incorporation
  • Standard format of Memorandum and Articles of Association
  • Memorandum and Articles will now be filed as linked e-forms
    • For Memorandum of Association, an applicant must only copy-paste the necessities
    • For Articles of Association, an applicant may choose the clauses that are applied and choose that are not applied or need alteration
  • Provision to apply for Company incorporation with a preapproved Company name
  • Digital Signature Certificates of subscribers and witnesses will now be affixed
  • Detailed and informative Inc-32 as compared to older form Inc-29
    • Older form, Inc-29 fulfills all purposes of Company registration that is an application for DIN allotment, reservation of Company name, incorporation, and even PAN and TAN
    • New form, Inc-32 provides the same facility, further including the filing of Memorandum and Articles of Association electronically

This initiative is a bold step and will increase gains with a faster review of the Memorandum and Articles of Association making SPICe the sole procedure to incorporate a Company in India.
