Registration Of Foreign Companies in India
- It is very important for all Indian and foreign companies to understand the companies set up in India under the Companies Act 2013.
- A foreign company which plans to set up business in India has two options: Joint ventures and wholly owned subsidiaries. The foreign equity in such companies can be up to 100% depending on the necessities of the investor. A foreign company can set up their operations in India by getting into a joint venture with an Indian company or a wholly owned subsidiary in sectors where 100% foreign direct investment is permitted under the FDI policy.
- All foreign companies have to agree to certain rules formed under the Companies Act, 2013.

- A foreign investor can either incorporate a private limited company or a public limited company. Whether a company is public or private, only the registrar of companies (ROC) has jurisdiction. A foreign company has to approach the ROC and give it proposed business idea and location of starting business. Based on the documents the ROC gives the investor a ‘Certificate of Registration’ which contains the date and incorporation number of the company registered. This document is of immense importance and serves as a proof/evidence that shows that the company is valid and registered in India.
