Stamp duty on OPC Incorporation

While filing the incorporation documents of an OPC, the stamp duty paid on AOA, MOA and other documents differ from state to state.

 

Stamp duty is collected by the government which is payable for different types of documents as per the Stamp Act. Payment of stamp duty conveys the legality to the document which can be presented in courts as an authentic document.

The procedure of company formation is the same in any state of India, the only difference being the amount of stamp duty payable. In the process of incorporating an OPC stamp duty is payable on the following documents:

  • Form SPICe (includes INC-32, INC-33, INC-34): Stamp duty varies state to state
  • MOA (Memorandum of Association): Stamp duty payable varies state to state
  • AOA (Articles of Association): Stamp duty of AOA differs state to state and from authorised capital too.
