Commencement of Business

If the minimum subscription amount is raised through new issue of shares, a public company applies to the Registrar of Companies for the issue of Certificate of Commencement of Business. The document needed for that purpose are:
  1. A declaration that shares payable by cash are subscribed for and allotted up to the amount of minimum subscription as mentioned in the Prospectus;
  2. A declaration that all the directors have paid in cash, the money for the application and allotment on his shares in the same proportion as others;
  3. A declaration that no money is payable or liable to become payable to the applicants due to failure of the company to either apply for or get authorization to deal in its securities on a stock exchange; and
  4. A statutory declaration that the above necessary things are complied with and this declaration can be signed by a director or secretary of the company. A public company for private fund raising, which earlier filed a Statement in lieu of prospectus, has to submit only 2 out of the 4 listed above. The Registrar examines all the documents and if these are found satisfactory, a 'Certificate of Commencement of Business' is issued. With this grant the company can start doing its business.
