What is Section 8 Company?

Well, when we talk about Section 8 Company people are a bit confused with the trust, society, and NGO. In short, Section 8 Company Registration, Society Registration, and Trust Registration all are level in NGO Registration. They are a category of NGO registration one can opt for. Section 8 company is the same as the NGO registration process. Section 8 company is a non-profit organization (NPO) that can be registered as a trust, society, or NGO under Section 8 of the Companies Act 2013. Even registering section company offers more benefits than society registration or trust registration. It is counted for charitable purposes or not-for-profit businesses.

Section 8 Company Registration Benefits

Tax and compliance exemptions: With its registration under Section 8 of Companies Act, it obtains a special status – distinct from other entities. Not only the company enjoys tax exemptions, but also the donors can claim an exemption for the donation made (under Income Tax). Apart from tax exemption, the company is also exempted from the applicability of many compliance-related provisions.

Separate legal identity: Being registered as a company, it obtains a separate identity apart from its members. Therefore, it can own and hold the assets and liabilities in its own name irrespective of the connection with the members. The change in members or the directors neither affects its existence or the assets & liabilities or rights & obligations.

Limited Liability: A company registered under Section 8 ensures limited liability to its members. The liability of the members is limited only to the extent of the capital subscribed and unpaid. The losses and obligations do not create a charge over the personal properties of members or directors. This helps the promoters to freely run the non-profit organisations.

No corporate title: Although the company enjoys the benefit of the corporate entity, it is not labelled as the corporate entity. The company does not need to add the suffix “Private Limited” or “Limited” after its name. This exemption is provided so that third parties offer their attention to the company’s purpose and not its status assuming it is profit making organisation.
