Overview Of Company Registration in Mumbai

Registering a company legally establishes and recognizes a company. A company’s registration gives it legal rights or acknowledgment in a certain jurisdiction. A registered company is a separate entity in the eyes of law and it comes with the benefit of limitation of liability and protects the shareholders from losing their personal assets during market breakdown or company losses. It makes the process of opening a bank account, acquiring a loan, or attracting funding from investors much more convenient. tax exemptions are available for registered businesses and start-ups. It also helps to develop the brand value of the business and establish credibility in the market. Lastly transferring a registered business is also facile. So, registering a business not only gives it recognition but helps in its expansion.
