One of the highly recommended ways to start a business in India is by setting up a private limited company. The whole process of starting a company could be time-consuming and a bit complex for entrepreneurs. So, taking help from a reputed legal consultancy firm like Muds Management could come in handy. A private limited company offers only limited liability for its shareholders along with certain restrictions placed on the ownership of the company and the shares. LLP (Limited Liability Partnership) has partners, who own & manage the business whereas, in private limited company registration, the directors may be different from the shareholders.

After the approval of the company registration process, you will receive a Certificate of Incorporation (CoI), along with the PAN & the TAN. After this, you are eligible to open a current bank account and begin your business operations from thereon.
