Concerns Related To Private Limited Company Registration in India
Factors To Consider In Company Name Selection
The name of your company is very important. It is the first impression to your buyers, suppliers and stakeholders. It should, therefore, be relevant, suggestive and attractive. There are various factors that you should keep in mind while naming for your company.
An acceptable name for a Company or LLP has three parts, the name part, object part and constitution. The following illustrations, illustrate the three parts of a name:
SBA Solutions Pvt Ltd
Tata Consultancy Services Limited
Reliance Industries Limited
The name must be unique and acceptable, as defined by the Companies Act, 2013 or LLP Act, 2008. The name cannot be the same or similar to an existing company or LLP or trademark in the same industry or field. Therefore, in case there exists a Company by the name XYZ Consultancy Private Limited, then the name XYZ Consultancy LLP would not be allowed. Also, similar names like XYZ Engineers Private Limited will not be allowed as it is in the same industry and is similar to an existing company. However, XYZ Motors Private Limited will be allowed as it is in a different industry / field.
Therefore, while choosing a company name, ensure there are no other names registered with the MCA in the same industry or field as that of the proposed name.
Every Company (includes Private Limited Company, One Person Company, Limited Company) and LLP name must include an object part, that clearly states the nature of business of the entity. The object part defines the main activity undertaken by the Company or LLP.
Even if a similar name exists, if the object of the Company is different, a proposed name can be allowed, as it is unique as a whole. For instance, if a company exists with the name XYZ Motors Private Limited, then XYZ Hospitality Private Limited will be acceptable, as the objective of the companies are different. However, names without any object or vague objects will not be allowed. For instance, ABC Private Limited or Mumbai Private Limited will not be allowed as it contains not object; ABC Group Private Limited will not be allowed as the object is too vague. The object must clearly state the purpose of the Company or LLP.
The constitution part defines the type of entity the name represents.
Private Limited Companies are represented by Private Limited Company or Private Limited or Pvt. Ltd Company.
One Person Companies are represented by OPC or One Person Company.
Limited Companies are represented by LTD Company or Limited or Limited Company.
Limited Liability Partnerships are represented by LLP or Limited Liability Partnership.
