Brief about the Section 8 Company

What is a Section 8 Company? – All that you Need to Know

A section 8 company is a firm that is officially registered as an NPO (Non-profit Organisation). It is registered as Not for Profit Company where there is no provision to distribute profit earned. Unlike a public limited company, which divides its profits among the shareholders, an NPO uses the profits (if any) for furthering its objective. The objective of an NPO is usually promotion of education, science, sports, social welfare, research, environmental protection, religion, commerce, arts, and other charitable purposes, Associations, Institutes, Colleges, NGO .

A Section 8 company functions just like a regular company, and it has all the rights and obligations that come with a private limited company. One significant differentiator between both is that the Section 8 Company cannot use the words, “Limited” or “Section 8” in its officially registered name.

Section 8 Companies come under the Companies Act of 2013, which corresponds to the old Section 25 of the Companies Act of 1956. When you register a company under Section 8, you get a certificate of incorporation, authorized by the Central Government of India.
