REGISTRATION PROCESS

Step 1: Incorporate your Business

Your company must first be incorporated as a Limited Liability Partnership, a Private Limited Company, or a partnership firm. You must adhere to all standard business registration requirements, such as submitting an application and receiving a certificate of incorporation or partnership registration.

By submitting a registration application to the Registrar of Companies (ROC) in your area, you can incorporate a Private Limited Company or a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). By submitting an application for your company’s registration with the local registrar of firms, you can create a partnership firm. The registration application must be submitted to the Registrar of Companies or Registrar of Firms along with the necessary paperwork and fees.

Step 2: Register with Startup India

Visit the Startup India website and click on the ‘Register’ button as shown below.

After creating a profile on the  website, companies can apply for a variety of challenges, incubator/mentorship programmes, and acceleration programmes, as well as have access to resources including learning and development programmes, government programmes, state policies for startups, and free services.

Step 3: Get DPIIT Recognition

Making a request for Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) Recognition is the next step after creating a profile on the Startup India website. With this recognition, startups are better able to take advantage of benefits like easy company winding, access to Fund of Funds, tax exemption for three years in a row, and tax exemption on investments that are more expensive than fair market value. Other advantages include relaxation of public procurement rules, self-certification under labour and environmental laws, and self-certification.

To receive DPIIT Recognition, log on to the Startup India website using your registered profile (account) credentials and select the “DPIIT Recognition for Startups” button under the “Schemes & Policies” tab.

Step 4: Recognition Application

You must fill out the “Startup Recognition Form” with information about the entity, the full address (office), the authorised representative, the directors, the partners, the information needed, the startup activities, and the self-certification. Enter data in each field by clicking the + symbol on the form’s right side. After completing the “Startup Recognition Form” in its entirety, accept the terms and conditions by clicking on the “Submit” button.

Step 6: Recognition Number

That’s it! You will receive a startup recognition number after applying. The inspection of all your papers will lead to the issuance of the certificate of recognition, which typically happens two days following the online submission of the information.

But take care when you submit the docs. If, upon further verification, it is discovered that the relevant document was either not uploaded at all, was uploaded incorrectly, or was uploaded fraudulently, you will be subject to a fine equal to 50% of your startup’s paid-up capital, with a minimum fine of Rs. 25,000.
