PREPARE TO BE A SUBSCRIBER/ FOUNDER OF A COMPANY


To be a good founder, promoter or subscriber of a company to be incorporated, one should at least have a well-documented identity and good financial health. I always suggest an excellent biodata with all supporting documents. There is a functional requirement for well-prepared bio-data. Your list of documents should include:

Bank BalanceThe subscriber undertakes to have a certain number of shares. If a subscriber could not pay for these subscription shares of the company so incorporated, the company may not commence its business.
List of companies in which you are directorMCA website may be helpful
List of companies in which you have more than 2% shareholdersOne should always have a detail of investments made. Otherwise, Income Tax Annual Information System may have some details

Every person should ensure all these documents have updated address and marital status information.

One common issue in these documents is spelling differences and style differences on different documents. To avoid inconvenience, always check your documents carefully and update them regularly.
