What is Section-8 Company ?
In India, a non-profit organisation can be created by registering a Society under the Societies Registration Acts or registering a Trust or incorporating a Section 8 company with a not for profit motive. Section 8 under the Companies Act, 2013 corresponds to the old Section 25 under the Companies Act, 1956, which was popularly known as “Section 25 Company”, hence the name “Section 8 Company”.

What is Section 8 Company Registration

A Section 8 Company is an organization which is registered as a Non-Profit Organization (NPO). NPO/company has its objective of promotion of arts, commerce, charity, education, protection of environment, science, social welfare, sports, research, religion and intends to apply its profits, if any, or other income in promoting its objects. It functions exactly like a limited company including all the rights and obligations that come with such a company. However, it differs from a company in one very crucial aspect, i.e. it cannot use the words “Section 8” or “Limited” in its name.

The income of the Company must be used to promote only charitable objects and cannot pay any dividend to the members of the company. The central government provides an incorporation certificate to all such companies and also informs them about some restrictions and conditions. In case they don’t fulfil them, the central government may also order them to wind up the company. In case fraud objectives of the Company are proved, legal action will be taken against all officers of the Company.Section 8 Company Registration can be done through LegalRaasta in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai and other Indian cities.
