12A Registration – Overview

Upon establishing a Trust organization or NGO, it becomes imperative to register under Section 12A of the Income Tax Act to avail of exemptions outlined in Sections 11 and 12. Section 12A facilitates nonprofit entities such as Charitable Trusts, Nonprofit Organizations, Welfare Societies, Religious Institutions, etc., to benefit from complete tax exemption as per the provisions of the Income Tax Act of 1961.

Nonetheless, it is crucial to highlight that the failure to register for 12A places non-profitable trusts or NGOs in a taxable position, subjecting their financial receipts and transactions to taxation. It is noteworthy that private or family trusts are ineligible for such exemptions and cannot secure 12A Registration. Therefore, timely registration under Section 12A is not only advisable but also instrumental in ensuring the tax-exempt status of the organization. The primary objective behind the creation of one-person companies was to promote entrepreneurship and encourage the formalization of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). According to Section 2(62) of the Companies Act 2013, a company can be formed with just one director and one member, and interestingly, these roles can be held by the same individual.

Benefits of 12A Registration

The advantages associated with obtaining Section 12A Registration are as follows:

By obtaining Section 12A Registration, nonprofit organizations can unlock these valuable benefits, enabling them to effectively pursue their charitable and religious objectives while enjoying tax exemptions and financial support from various sources.

Eligible Entity for Section 12A registration

Section 12A registration is available to various types of entities that meet the eligibility criteria. The following entities are eligible for Section 12A registration:

In conclusion, One Person Companies (OPCs) offer several advantages, including limited liability, ease of fundraising, reduced compliance, straightforward incorporation and management, and perpetual succession. These benefits make OPCs an attractive choice for entrepreneurs looking to establish their businesses while enjoying legal protection and simplified operational procedures.

Disadvantages of OPC

While OPCs offer advantages, there are also limitations:

To operate a proprietorship business in India, the proprietor is required to secure both PAN and Aadhar. Furthermore, they must obtain GST registration, UDYAM registration, and establish a current bank account. In certain states, compliance with the Shops & Establishment Act registration may also be mandatory.
It's important to note that, beyond these fundamental prerequisites, additional licenses and permits may be necessitated, contingent upon the specific industry, state, and local regulations.

Required Documents

As part of the OPC registration process, it’s crucial to prepare and submit several essential documents to the Registrar of Companies (ROC). These documents typically include:

Registration of One Person Company (OPC) in India

In India, the registration of a One Person Company (OPC) is facilitated through the SPICe+ (Simplified Proforma for Incorporating Company Electronically Plus) form, which has replaced the previous application forms for company incorporation.

The registration process for an OPC consists of two parts:

Part A: In this initial section of the SPICe+ form, the focus is on securing approval for the desired company name and applying for the Director Identification Number (DIN) or Permanent Account Number (PAN) for the proposed director.

Part B: The subsequent segment, known as Part B, involves providing incorporation-related details. Here, essential information such as the registered office address of the OPC, details about share capital, particulars of the director, and information about the shareholder is provided.

Here are the steps involved in the OPC registration.

Step 1:Obtain a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)

Start by obtaining a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) for the intended director of the OPC. The DSC is a crucial electronic signature used for electronically signing important documents throughout the registration process.

Step 2: Obtain Director Identification Number (DIN)

Next, acquire a Director Identification Number (DIN) for the proposed director from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). The DIN is a unique identifier required for company directors in India.

Step 3: Name Reservation

Apply for name reservation through the MCA portal using Form SPICe+ (Part A). Ensure that the chosen name for your company is distinct and does not resemble any existing company or trademark. This step is essential to secure the desired name for your OPC.

Step 4: Prepare MOA and AOA

Draft the Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA) for your company. These documents define the company’s objectives and internal rules, ensuring clarity and legal compliance.

Step 5: File the Forms

File the necessary forms with the  MCA for OPC registration. Attach the relevant documents to the SPICe+ form, including MOA, AOA, declarations, proof of the registered office, nominee appointment, and any other documents required by the MCA. Ensure that all documents are complete and accurate to facilitate a smooth registration process.

Step 6: Certificate of Incorporation

Upon approval by the Registrar of Companies (ROC) and verification of compliance requirements, the ROC will issue a Certificate of Incorporation, signifying the successful registration of your One Person Company (OPC). Notably, the PAN number (Permanent Account Number) and TAN (Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number) are generated automatically during the incorporation process, eliminating the need for separate applications.

With this Certificate of Incorporation, your OPC is officially recognized and ready to commence its operations in India.
