Government Registrations

Have employees? You need a Professional Tax registration and Shops & Establishments Act Registration. If that's not enough, you also need to file GST Returns and Professional Tax Returns.

You need to inform them of every relevant change you make, whether it is adding a director, removing a partner or increasing authorised share capital. You also need to file annual returns and maintain your accounts. In the case of a private limited company, you even need them audited.
