The era of simple incorporation has already been over. We have SPICe since long which claimed to facilitate additional registrations at the option of the applicant. Now, This is over. The Government is now at the final stage of serving added SPICe. The menu name “SPICe+”
Foundations of all great buildings are usually a neglected construction but ensuring long life of the building. Subscription Sheet is one of the neglected areas of our discussions in corporate laws. With the introduction of eMemorandum of Association (SPICe MoA) and eArticles of Association (SPICe AoA), we usually consider it obsolete. No, it is actually not.
How to read the ecosystem of law is the basic question all practitioners of procedural laws raise time to time. This is not the same question students of law raise in schools or lawyers in courts. This is not all about interpretation and cracking of a law code hidden behind words. Here, I am trying to reply with reference to my bread and butter – the Companies Act, 2013 and The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016.
No. In this post, I am not discussing any existing law. This a proposal I received in form of a query on Quora about registration of a temporary company. I received another query, how India registered so many “paper companies”.
This is a brief (not a legal) note on the advantage of public deposit made by the general public under the Companies Act. What advantage public deposit have.
I personally do not see it as a safe investment avenue for the general public. Unless you have a risk-bearing capacity to invest the same amount in the volatile stock market, it is advisable not to invest in Public Deposit.
I received an interesting query on Quora earlier this month. Another day, another reader asked on WhatsApp why Registrar of Companies or Serious Fraud Investigation Office is not taking action against “PMC Bank Limited”. The reader was ignorant of the word “co-operative” in the name of scam-hit banks. Last year, one member/shareholder of the State Bank of India queried about compliance by the bank under the Companies Act, 2013.
The founder is not a legal term in relation to a company. General Public usually uses this term to refer to the original promoters of any company.
Interestingly, the definition of the term “promoter” also do not indicate directly to “founders” as the definition is drafted with the perspective of an existing company.
Now, I must subscribers to the Memorandum of Association (MoA), the founding or constituting documents of a company are first promoters. They satisfy two conditions of the definition of promoters also.
Subscribers of the MoA took initiatives to form a company and give a legal birth to it. Sometimes one of them actually leads and recognised by other subscribers as founder subscriber.
In short, the mind has a seed of the company in it may be called the founder of the company.
