Indian Subsidiary Registration

Any company which is incorporated in India and owned by a foreign company is known as an Indian Subsidiary. The process of registering an Indian subsidiary is governed under the provisions of Companies Act, 2013. When a foreign company owns and controls majority stake/shareholding or control in the company incorporated in India, then it is called an Indian subsidiary company.

Minimum Requirement for Indian Subsidiary registration:

 A minimum number of two Directors who are adults.

 One of the Directors of a Indian Subsidiary company has to be an Indian Citizen and Indian Resident.

 The other director(s) can be a Foreign National.

 It is also required to have two shareholders of a company.

 The shareholders can be natural persons or an artificial legal entity.

Advantages of Indian Subsidiary registration

Foreign Direct Investment in India (FDI)

Foreign Direct Investment can be understood as a form of direct or indirect investment made by a foreign company in an India registered private limited company. The foreign company acquires or subscribes shares of an Indian company. However, the government has changed the policy requirements for FDI in India. Prior approval will be required from the government if an investment is coming from a country that shares land borders with India. However, no such approval is required in other cases.

No Minimum Capital Requirement

No minimum capital limit is prescribed for an Indian subsidiary Company in India. And the capital can always be altered at any stage as per the growth requirements of the company. This implies that it can be formed without any share capital. The funds necessary for carrying the business operations can be brought, later, in the form of donations and/or subscriptions from members and the general public.

Separate Legal Entity

An Indian subsidiary company is an entity having separate legal identity and it may own property on its own name and can sue and be sued through its own name.
