Advantages of NBFC Registration

- Fresh NBFC Registration can be completed in a period of 90 to 120 days with about 90 % to 95% Success ratio at overall in our experience. At the other side, NBFC Takeover takes 5 months to 12 months period. In case you are a foreigner after Nod from Department of Non-Banking supervision again you need to apply for permission before the Foreign Exchange department of RBI, which again may take minimum 3 months’ time. At overall acquiring an NBFC by foreigner takes 12-15 months’ time and acquisition by Indian Shareholders may take about to 5 to 9 Months. In our experience, only 30% Takeover Deal was successful in past 5 years.
- There is no title risk of Ownership after New NBFC Registration as you are the 1st shareholder of the company at another side in acquiring an existing NBFC, you will not able to establish the clear title of shares. As in 80% NBFC takeover case, we have experienced that target company has no documentary evidence about the transfer of ownership. Merely equity shares were transferred to ROC Records. The Share transfer deed has not been executed.
- There are no assets held by newly incorporated company hence there is no short term or long term gain but at another side, if you are acquiring existing NBFC, you need to prepare for future Capital gain liability, Penalty from Registrar of companies etc.
– In the case of fresh NBFC License application, you may need to block your Rs. 2 Cr / Rs. 20 Million FD in Bank Account and definitely you will earn some amount of interest in it. At another side, in a case of the takeover, the proposed shareholders are required to submit the Bankers report stating the Bank Balance equivalent to book value of the shares.
