What is a Section 8 Company?

In accordance with the Companies Act of 2013, a Section 8 Company is defined as an entity that promotes objectives related to arts, sciences, sports, education, environmental preservation, social welfare, charity, or similar pursuits.

To register a Section 8 entity, a minimum of two directors and two subscribers are necessary. Additionally, there is no obligation to maintain a minimum paid-up capital for establishing such a company.

The key advantage of setting up a Section 8 Company lies in the tax benefits it offers. The registration fees, including stamp duty, are minimal due to the nonprofit and public welfare objectives of Section 8, resulting in lower government charges.
