Want to incorporate a new company…??

Here is the solution to your all problems..!!

> Section 7 of Companies Act, 2013 deals with the procedure of Incorporating a Company.

>  Many amendments have come till now for Incorporation procedure within a short time span.

>  Earlier there were forms INC-1, DIR-3, INC-7, DIR-12 & INC-22 for company incorporation.

>  Then came RUN service and SPICe form alongwith electronic MOA & AOA, together these forms were named as INC-32, INC-33 & INC-34.

>  Then came within same frame of SPICe, a new form named as AGILE: for GST / ESI / EPFO registration simultaneously with the Company formation.

>  Again the procedure for Company Incorporation has been amended very recently and this SPICe has become SPICe + (plus). This new SPICe plus form has given us a single roof which facilitates multiple web services.
