Our team of legal and business experts is committed to making the subsidiary setup a hassle-free process, allowing you to concentrate on expanding your business.

A subsidiary company is often referred to as a sister company, while the company that exercises control over it is known as the parent company or holding company. The parent company holds the authority to control the subsidiary company, either in part or entirely. The registration process for an Indian subsidiary company is governed by the Companies Act of 2013. According to the Companies Act of 2013, a subsidiary company can be defined as a company in which a foreign corporate body or parent entity holds a minimum of 50% of the total share capital. In essence, the parent company exerts a significant influence and control over the subsidiary company.

In India, there are two primary categories of subsidiaries:

Wholly-Owned Subsidiary

In a wholly-owned subsidiary, the parent company holds 100% ownership of the subsidiary's shares. However, it's essential to recognize that wholly-owned subsidiaries can only be established in sectors that permit 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

Subsidiary Company

In this category of subsidiary, the parent company owns 50% of the subsidiary's shares. Before proceeding with the establishment of a subsidiary in India, obtaining approval from the Reserve Bank of India is a crucial prerequisite. This regulatory step ensures compliance with the country's foreign investment regulations and safeguards the interests of all stakeholders involved.

There are several compelling advantages associated with registering a subsidiary company in India:

Entry into the Indian Market

India's competitive environment offers a plethora of investment opportunities that attract foreign entrepreneurs to establish their subsidiary companies in the country.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in India

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) entails investments made by foreign companies in Indian private companies through share subscriptions or acquisitions. In 2020, the Indian government introduced a provision mandating prior approval for investments from countries sharing a border with India. This development has rendered Indian subsidiary registration an appealing option for foreign investors.

Perpetual Succession

The concept of perpetual succession ensures that a company's existence remains unaffected by events such as changes in management, transfers of membership, or insolvency. The company persists in its operations, ensuring stability and continuity.

Limited Liability

Limited liability is a substantial advantage that incentivizes individuals to choose company formation over other business structures. This principle also extends to Indian subsidiary companies, safeguarding the personal assets of shareholders and directors. The company assumes responsibility for its debts to third parties, providing protection for the personal assets of its stakeholders.

Scope of Diversification

Establishing an Indian subsidiary company offers a strategic pathway for foreign businesses to expand their operations, thereby contributing to the growth and development of the Indian economy. It also introduces a diverse array of goods and services, promoting healthy competition.

Separate Legal Identity

According to the Companies Act, a company is regarded as a distinct legal entity, separate from its shareholders and directors. This legal status grants the company the authority to enter into agreements with other competent entities as an artificial legal person. It also enables the company to institute legal proceedings and address allegations within the judicial system using its own name, without direct involvement from its members or directors.

Property Ownership and Rental

A subsidiary company, being a legal entity, holds the authority and the right to acquire or lease properties in India for its business operations. To avoid potential conflicts among company members, it is advisable to procure such properties in the name of the company itself, in line with the principle of perpetual succession.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) is responsible for establishing and enforcing the rules and regulations governing company registration and compliance. Registrar of Companies (ROC) offices oversee the processes related to company incorporation, ensuring that companies adhere to legal requirements. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) regulates foreign currency exchange aspects for Indian subsidiary companies, ensuring compliance with financial regulations.

The process of registering a company in India is governed by the Companies Act, 2013, which outlines various pre-incorporation and post-incorporation requirements. Here are the essential elements to consider when registering a company in India:


Annual Compliance

India has unique compliance requirements, including mandatory statutory audits even for smaller companies.

Setting up an Indian subsidiary company involves several key steps and compliance requirements: Here's a step-by-step guide on how to register a company's subsidiary in India:

Determine the Type of Company

Decide on the type of subsidiary company you want to establish.

Obtain Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)

As the registration process is conducted online, it is essential to acquire a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) for the prospective directors of the company. The DSC is utilized for electronically signing the required documents throughout the registration process.

Apply for Director Identification Number (DIN)

The directors of the subsidiary company are required to obtain a Director Identification Number (DIN) from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). This can be achieved by submitting the DIN application online.

Name Approval

Kindly select a distinctive name for your subsidiary company and proceed to apply for its approval through the MCA's online portal. Ensure that the chosen name complies with the naming guidelines provided by the MCA.

Draft Memorandum of Association (MoA) and Articles of Association (AoA)

The Memorandum of Association (MoA) and Articles of Association (AoA) are legal documents that specify the company's objectives, rules, and regulations. It is essential to draft these documents in compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2013.

File Incorporation Documents

After your selected name is approved, you should proceed to file the incorporation documents, which encompass the Memorandum of Association (MoA), Articles of Association (AoA), and other essential forms, with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) through the MCA's online portal. The incorporation process is typically carried out using the SPICe+ form on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs portal.

Payment of Registration Fees

Pay the necessary registration fees to the ROC based on the authorized capital of the subsidiary company.

Obtain a Certificate of Incorporation (COI)

If all the submitted documents and information are found to be in order, the ROC will issue a Certificate of Incorporation. This certificate serves as the official confirmation of the subsidiary company's registration.

Apply for Permanent Account Number (PAN) and Tax Registration

Once you have obtained the Certificate of Incorporation (CoI), proceed to apply for a Permanent Account Number (PAN) and a Tax Deduction and Collection Account Number (TAN) from the Income Tax Department for the subsidiary company.

Open Bank Account

Finally, open a bank account in the name of the subsidiary company in India. Compliance with Other Regulations: In addition to the company registration process, ensure compliance with other relevant regulations.

Obtain a GST Number

Goods and Services Tax (GST) registration is necessary after completing the above steps, particularly if the company is involved in various business activities. Every Indian company must apply for a GST number for taxation purposes.

Initiating Business Operations:

The company can commence its business operations once all the preceding steps are completed.

To establish a legal and valid Indian subsidiary company, compliance with specific regulations is mandatory:

Indian subsidiary companies are subject to specific taxation policies:

Concessional tax rates apply to Indian subsidiaries in specific sectors, such as oil exploration, air transportation, and shipping businesses.

100% Foreign Direct Investment is allowed in most sectors. A few sectors, however, require prior approval from the Central Government for foreign investments. These sectors include private security agencies, civil aviation, mining, print media and broadcasting, satellite establishment and operation, pharmaceuticals, and trading of food products.

Foreign entities can establish wholly-owned Indian subsidiaries with 100% ownership, subject to specific qualifications.
