NGO Registration ( Section 8 Company Registration )
@ just Rs. 12,000/- (all inclusive)
Companies created for the public interest only, that is, for not making any profit, fall under section 8 of the Companies Act 2013. These companies are popularly known as Section 8 Companies or Non-Profit making companies. According to Companies Act 2013, the major aim of these companies is to promote research, social welfare, religion, charity, commerce, art, science, sports, education, and the protection of the environment or any such object. The main point is if any gain is earned, from the conduct of the company, even then it is not possible to give to its shareholders. However, profit gained can be used for advertisement of their social or public work. The concept of section 8 companies is just like Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) or trusts but the unique disagreement is that section 8 companies are regulated by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, on the other hand, NGOs and trust are governed by local state regulations which may vary from state to state. The purpose of forming section 8 companies in place of NGOs and trusts is that sponsors and the government largely place trustworthiness on companies.
