After recognition under the DPIIT, you can connect with other startups, investors and incubators on the Startup India portal under the Tab - Ecosystem. You can also connect by logging into your account.

Startup India Hub is a virtual online platform launched by the Government for entrepreneurs to connect and engage with other entrepreneurs, advisors, mentors, Angel Investors, incubators, and Venture Capital firms to strengthen the startup ecosystem in the country. The hub is a dynamic and interactive platform which will facilitate learning, networking, funding and mentorship.

At the present, a company or partnership having registered offices in India can register under the Startup India hub since only Indian states can be chosen as location preferences. It is possible in the future that stakeholders from the global ecosystem will be allowed to register on the hub.

The following documents are required for uploading on the web portal to register a company/partnership as a startup:

  • Certificate of incorporation/registration
  • PAN card of the entity
  • MoA/AoA of company or partnership deed of partnerships
  • Details about directors and partners
  • IPR registration
  • Any awards/certificate/recognition received
  • Annual statements/ copy of Income tax return for three years

An entity is a “Startup” only if it is incorporated as a Private Limited company (under the Companies Act, 2013), or registered as a Partnership Firm (under the Partnership Act) or a Limited Liability partnership (under the Limited Liability Partnership Act) in India. The company should also fulfill the following conditions:

  • No more than ten years should have elapsed from its incorporation/ registration.
  • The turnover of the entity in any financial year since incorporation/ registration has not exceeded INR 100 crore.
  • The entity is working towards innovation, development or improvement of products or processes or services, or is a scalable business model with a high potential of employment generation or wealth creation.
  • Exemption is only available to Startups that are private limited companies or LLP formed on or after 01 April, 2016
  • It holds a certificate of eligible business from Inter-Ministerial Board of Certification

Startups get many tax benefits under Section 80 of Income tax Act upto three years and also under Section 56 where investment into startups by companies with turnover exceeding 250 crores or net worth exceeding 100 crores is exempted from tax. The startup will also be exempt from capital gains tax if the amount of paid-up share capital and premium of the startup after the proposed issuing of shares does not exceed INR 25 crore. Startups can also self certify six labour laws and three environmental laws till a period of five years from the date of incorporation. The provisions of faster exit, relaxation in procurement norms and establishment of fund of funds are also available under the scheme.

Most startups prefer to be registered as a Private Limited Company or a Limited Liability Partnership. A private limited company is generally favoured by investors due to its simple company registration process & less compliances. Similarly, Limited Liability Partnerships have more relaxed compliances and lower incorporation costs and are also seeked out by investors.

No, the partnership formed by converting a firm into an LLP will not be eligible for registration under the Startup India Scheme. This is because entities formed by splitting up or reconstruction of already existing business are not eligible to be registered as a Startup.

No. As per recent notification dt 11.04.2018, to claim Tax benefit/Exemption under income tax act, you need to apply separately after getting your startup recognised.
