Legal Formalities for Starting HR consultancy
default

I receive lots of queries about legal formalities  required for starting HR Consultancy ? Actually, the answer  depends upon the type of  company you want to start. As i already wrote about it in my earlier post  How to start a HR Consultancy company, that there are four types of firms in India i.e.

  • Sole Proprietorship
  • Partnership
  • Private Limited
  • Public Limited

The easiest and most affordable way to start a HR consultancy is to start it as a Sole Proprietorship firm.  For starting a proprietorship firm, you will need few documents as well.

  1. Letter Head in the name of company
  2. Visiting card
  3. Company Rubber Stamp
  4. Your PAN Card
  5. Address Proof  (copy of telephone bill. Electricity bill)
  6. Rent Agreement if you are running from rented premises
  7. Service tax registration (optional)
  8. Current account in the name of your firm in any bank, we prefer IDBI

It is always advised to have a website designed for your company as it boosts trust about your company in the market. You can even go for SEO as it will bring new customers to you through internet. You can also go for service tax registration, but is optional.  Service tax registration is only needed when your annual revenue is more than 10 lakhs.  For service tax registration you can contact any CA  and he will happy do service tax registration for you for  anything between Rs. 2500- Rs.3500.

If you want to open partnership firm for your HR consultancy, you will still need all the things above but in addition to that you will be needing copy of partnership deed. In partnership firm all the partners will be the owners of the company.

If you want to open a Private Limited company, you will be needing 2 persons as board of directors and you will need one auditor. Along with this you will be needing a copy of memorandum of association.

If you are just starting,  I advise you to start with sole proprietorship or partnership firm depending on the situation. Then you can move to make it private limited if everything is fine.  Hope this will solved some of your queries.:) Leave a comment if you want to know anything regarding the legal formalities.

Sharing is caring!

    Hi, this article is quite explanatory, albeit I have some points that you may want to help with:
    1. Is it advisable or will you recommend a person without HR background or qualification to run a HR consultancy. If so, in your view, will the clients be okay with it?
    2. Is it advisable to start before knowing the clients or without related key contacts in the client’s industry.

    On proof reading thios question this kinda sounds insane be hope your answer will clarify my doubts.

    Thanks

    @surai: Yes, you can run consultancy from home if you are comfortable. Running a office from home has its advantages and disadvantages. But initially you can start from home.

    Initially you just start as a sole proprietor firm. For sole proprietorship, you just need to open a current account in the name of your company, print letterheads and business cards and you are ready to go. This is all required to start. No extra formalities are required.

    Proposal should contain the terms and conditions for your services. It should be careful written as it is the only proof at the time of dispute. You should also try to get the proposal signed by client on their company letterhead.

    @pradeep: Running a company has nothing to do with the background. Ofcourse HR background helps. But even if you don’t have HR background you can research about HR and recruitment services on net and start. Remember, you should never jump into river without knowing swimming.

    As far as clients concerned, they are comfortable if you are confident and if you can deliver. Client will never ask about the degrees or grades or background. you should only know how to convince a client.

    and if you have key contact it will definitely help. if you don’t have then also you can start. bharti, tata, ambani, all started once without any contacts. What you need is a killing desire to succeed and sky is the limit.

      You cannot run a manpower agency for International recruitments by having only India Firm registration , You must be registered with MOE India for Foreign Manpower Services. As of know, you can just provide jobs without taking Original passports from the Candidates and also you should have a contract between you and the international clients stating that you firm isn’t charging any kind of Amount from the candidates and your clients are paying you as a benefits in your current Account and you must have an agreement between you and the candidates prior starting his/her process without collecting any advance and hidden charges before and after you receive his / her Visa,,, then it means if you follow these steps, You will be on safe side.

    @Sangeeta.. Good information.
    I have one basic but important query. As you suggested to start from sole proprietorship. To do so, just open a current account with the name of your consultancy and it is done. But, when I approached banks, they are asking any governemt’s registration certificate that should show the name of my consultancy. In that case, how to open current account, if we do want to for registration (as this is optional for sole proprietership)?

    Please suggest.

    March 17, 2011, 12:57 pm

      Hai, It is a practical problem to open a current account as you said. My suggestion in this regard is you can apply and get a SSI certificate, which most of the banks accepting this as a proof. You can get the same at the Dist head qts.

      March 27, 2011, 8:26 pm

        Thanks for suggestion Senthil.
        What is SSI certificate? Is this same as Service Tax registration? Also, does SSI contains name of the company?

        Also, now-days, for opening of any bank account (current or saving), bank ask for PAN card. It means we need to have PAN card in the name of company. But for applying for PAN card, we need to provide detail of company incorporation documents. So, the problem remains the same for sole propritership.

        Pls suggest, how others have opened bank account in the name of sole propritership firm, without registering the firm.

    Your blog was very helpful. I am planning to start my own recruitment firm. I would be working from home itself. I wanted to know if I would require Gumasta License because I want to keep my business totally professional and want the companies to take my work seriously. My website is currently under development currently. Also I already have a personal account in Axis bank. I would prefer to open a company account in the same bank. Would it be feasible?

    Very soon i am starting a consultancy company in Cuttack.
    The major problem i am facing is having candidate’s profile.
    Advertisements in newspapers are not giving me the required output.Every week i am giving it and spent near about Rs.5000, but the result is not satisfactory. As its a new company i can’t afford buying those costly resume packages from renowned job portals.
    Please guide me to have a considerable number of profiles in my database.

    Greetings Sangita, I really happy about your blog. You explained very elaborately with full details. Now i clear about my doubts and got some boost to start my sole proprietorship.
    As i think,
    1) Client approach, we have to step up to them
    2) Job seeker, we can reach through advertisement and spreading news to circles
    3) Regarding term & conditions, we mention what we need
    4) Regarding contract with client, when we step up to them, just tell them our terms and ask their conditions
    but my doubt is PF, ESI, Graduate Fund, EPF like this. i have google this thing, it says ESI=6.5%(4.75%+1.75%) for above 21000& Graduate fund applicable above 5year experience, EPF, below 15000(1000/month), And employer 12% for PF, employee 12%(3.67PF+8.33%pension scheme) like this.
    i wanna know about this, bcoz after calculate this only we can come conclusion about staff salary.

    if client ask about our service tax number even we dont register bcoz of below 10L/year, what shall we do? how to manage that and make contract with them?

    Thank you
