What are the legal requirements for subsidiary formation in India?

  • Company Name: The name of the subsidiary should not be similar to any existing company’s name in India. It has to be a Private Limited entity registered with the ROC. 
  • Directors: A minimum of two directors is required, including one local resident director.
  • Shareholders: At least two shareholders are needed. They can be natural or legal persons, including foreign companies.
  • Registered Office: A physical address in India is required, which will be the subsidiary’s registered office.
  • Capital: To meet immediate business needs, we recommend adding a minimum of 1,00,000 INR as paid-up capital and 10,00,000 INR as subscribed capital.
  • Legal Documents: During the filling process, it is vital to submit an AoA (Article of Assosiation) and MoA (Memorandum of Assosiation), which defines the activity scope of the organization along with various other legal nuances. A Director Identification Number (DIN) and Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) are essential to confirm authenticity before submitting the form. 
  • Approval and Registrations: Depending on the business sector, certain approvals from various government authorities might be required.

How long does the subsidiary formation process take?

The process can vary based on several factors, but on average, setting up a functional subsidiary in India can take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks. This includes the time for obtaining DIN, DSC, name approval, and incorporation certificate. Additional approvals, if required for specific sectors, might extend this timeline.

What are the tax implications of having an Indian subsidiary?

Corporate Tax, Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT), Goods and Services Tax (GST), Transfer Pricing, and a few Other Taxes might be applicable depending on the nature of the business.

Can I manage my subsidiary remotely?

Yes, with advancements in technology and communication tools, many aspects of a subsidiary can be managed remotely. However, certain key decisions and compliance matters might require a physical presence or a local representative. Furthermore, having local management can assist in understanding and navigating the Indian business culture and regulatory landscape.
