2. How to fill SPICe+ Form?

Users have two options to fill the form:

First to submit Part-A for reserving new companies name and thereafter submit Part-B for incorporation process and availing other services as may be required

Second to submit Part-A and Part-B together at one go for the incorporation of a new company and availing range of services as above.

In our opinion it is better to proceed step by step i.e. first submit Part-Athen after name approval proceed with submission of Part-B.

A new and easy dashboard has been developed for the application of incorporation process of new companies(SPICe+ and other linked forms as applicable).

3. How incorporation application is submitted after approval of name in Part-A?

After getting approval of name in Part-A, Incorporation application can be submitted seamlessly in continuation of Part-A of SPICe+ Form. Stakeholders are not even required to enter the SRN of the approved name as the approved Name will be prominently displayed on the Dashboard and a click on the same will take the user for continuation of the application through a hyperlink that will be available on the SRN/application number in the new dashboard.

4. How to make resubmission of application?

Resubmissions of applications for company name reservation and/or incorporation are handled through the application number/Name applied for link on the new dashboard. A hyperlink will be available for the SRN/application number, so as to enable easy resubmission, wherever required.

5. Is RUN Form still active?

From 23rd February 2020 on wards, RUN service is not applicable for reserving name of company, however it is still applicable only for ‘change of name’ of an existing company.

6. Is user required to fill details in Linked forms also if already filled in Part-A?

7. How SPICe+ is easy to file?

For better easiness of filing, SPICe+is framed into various sections. Information which has been entered can be saved and modified accordingly.

All Check form and Pre-scrutiny validations (except DSC validation) will happen on web-form itself.

8. How digital signatures are affixed?

SPICe+ is required to be converted into pdf form after filling all the relevant information and details for affixing digital signatures.

All digitally signed applications can then be uploaded along with the linked forms as per the existing process.
