For example market, change in technologies, etc. are not in your control but they might have a severe adverse effect on your business. Yes, they can have a positive impact too, but a businessman needs to be prepared for the worst come worst scenario. Contingency funds are for these scenarios. You must create a cash pool that will help you to sustain during the bad days. So, while designing your company’s financial planning, consider the contingency fund also.

5. Review and monitor

Monitoring your progress is a continuous process. Compare your projects with actuals to see the difference between them and also to understand how far you are from the target. It will help you to find the actual problem areas and rectify them before they exaggerate.

Financial Statements.

You must create the books of accounts consisting of Income and Expenses statement, Cash Book, and Balance Sheet, which helps you to know your current financial status. While the Income and Expenses accounts give you the profit or loss, the Cash Book tells you about your cash in hand or cash in a bank, and the Balance Sheet provides clarity on the assets and liabilities.

For prediction, analyzing the current scenario is a must, and these books of accounts will help you to do it. So, update them regularly and visit them more than often.

Contingency and Risk Management Plan.

A break-even point’s study will give an idea of how many units or products you will need to sell and at what price to cover your expense. Ideally, you should plan it in such a way that your income at least covers the cost you have incurred with a minimum profit margin.

A thorough analysis of the break-even point will give you an idea on how to manage your resources, what is the price you should keep for your products when to think of growing your business, and t what cost.

Raw materials planning

You purchase raw materials or hire labor in return of the service. You should do a thorough analysis of the return on investment before making any decision. This way you will be able to keep control over your financial statements, and your liabilities will not be more than your assets.

Steps to Register a Company

Let us now discuss the various steps to register a company.

company registration

There are four steps to register a company:

  1. Obtain a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC). DSC is a digital signature that is made compulsory for each director under the information act 2000. It takes approximately two days to obtain the e-signatures, and the directors can proceed with the rest of the steps once it is acquired.

Since a lot of applications, forms can be submitted online, and a lot of other activities can be carried out online, it is essential to have a verified e-signature. However, it is necessary to obtain a DSC from Government approved agencies only and it must be checked before being used anywhere.

Also note, in case a director already has a DIN, he will not have to apply for once again. But, he needs to get the existing one verified to ensure its validity.

new company registration

New applicants can apply using the simple steps on the MCA portal:

  • On MCA homepage, under MCA service, click on “Acquirer DSC.”
  • Select on “Director” and key in your DIN precisely.
  • Only once the system verifies the number, it will allow you to proceed.
  • You will have to finish the remaining of the form with the utmost concentration. The information should be the same as DIR-3 or DIR-6, whichever the director has.
  • Click “Next.”  In case the system finds some mismatch in the information, it will throw an error. The information submitted while applying for DIN and the information here should be the same. Without which the director cannot proceed.
  • Once you fill in all the details correctly, and carefully, you can select DSC.
  • Click “Select Certificate” and ensure to select the correct DSC while browsing through the list of it.

  • Agree to the terms and conditions by tapping on “I Agree.”
  • Submit the form and acknowledge the information that appears on the screen.
  • Take a print out of the acknowledgment slip for future reference.

The process is same for managers, CEOs, CFO, or Practicing Professionals; they only need to select their respective field instead of “Director’ post clicking on “Register DSC.” Rest of the process is the same as explained above.  Also not, instead of DIN, PAN number is the critical validating factor for the rest except Director.

  •  Obtain Director Identification Number (DIN) from MCA. Each director must have a DIN by submitting all the information about the self. It is a simple procedure:

a. Create an account on the MCA website and upload the DIR-3 form after completing it carefully. (In case of any change in address or other details in a later period, the same need to be updated using DIR-6). A fee is applicable to acquiring DIN.

d. Once all the directors have acquired their DIN, the company should further intimate the Registrar of Corporates about the compiled list of DIN through an eForm and application.

  • Register under new users and create an account on the MCA webpage.

It is necessary to have a registered account in the MCA portal as it plays a very crucial role in making online transaction with the Government, like submitting an online form, payment of fees with convenience (and without paying any extra charge), and various other transactions which can be done online without going to the office physically.

You need not have to pay any fees for registering yourself and creating a new account on the MCA portal. You merely need to go to the MCA portal, click on Register and submit the required information along with a unique user id and password.

Remember this user id and password as these will be required for all the future online transactions on this portal. Post registration, for every time you log in you, need to click on “Login” and type in your registered User Id and Password.

  • Acquire the Certificate of Incorporation.

This is the last step for registering your company. It is for recording the details pertaining to the company like the address, the details of the directors, managers, and secretaries, and their shares.

Checklist of documents to be submitted for acquiring a certificate of incorporation.

The status of the application will change to “Approved.”

Selecting the Name for New Company

Why is it important to choose the right business structure

While applying for the name of your company, you must ensure that the name is unique and has not been used by any registered company earlier. Form-1A is used for this purpose. This form needs to be submitted with a processing charge of INR 500 to the Registrar of Companies. You will have to suggest four options as the proposed name of your upcoming company.

It should also contain the details like name and address of the directors. The minimum number of directors details required are:

You would probably be thinking that what is brand management? Basically, it is all about capturing a targeted market for your products and services. Apart from this, you also need to build the confidence for your products and services within the minds of your current as well as forthcoming customers. Branding is all about conveying a message in various forms, creating a bond called trust among the targeted audiences and persuade an individual to purchase the item which will further establish an emotional connect with the customers.

Adding more to it, branding also helps in making customers’ perception about any product or any service. If branding has to be defined in a single statement, then it can be concluded that the ultimate aim of branding is to create the difference.

For an instance, ‘Colgate’ is a brand of toothpaste but generally when someone has to brush their teeth, they don’t that they are going to brush their teeth using toothpaste. Instead of this, people usually say, that they brush their teeth using ‘Colgate’.  So, for a customer, toothpaste means ‘Colgate’. Henceforth, that’s the effect of branding, where your product is not known by the product but it is famous on the name of the brand. Anakeen Business can help you create this difference with mastermind strategic plans for the enhancement of your business.

A strong brand can help you reduce in the perceived safety, monetary and social risks of the customer to buy a particular product. This because a customer can have a better perception of tangible goods with a brand name. A strong brand has a higher share of the whole market and it supports in the sustainability of the product in the market industry. Henceforth, it is indispensable to manage all brands and build brand equity time to time.

Importance Of Brand Management

  • A perfect brand management helps in building the righteous image of the product and the company as well. And a brand manager is responsible for the overall performances of the brand. Successful brands are the result of marvelous brand management system.
  • On the whole, a brand management includes the management f both tangible and intangible characteristics of brand. In terms of product branding, the tangible include the item itself, packaging, pricing, etc. In case of services, tangible comprises of the experiences of the customer with the product. However, intangibles include the emotional instincts with the target audiences.

Major Principles Of Brand Management:

  • Define Your Brand:
Define Your Brand

Your company can only grow when it is authentic. Apart from the authenticity, the main purpose, mission, position, character and value are some of the factors that can help you in a perfect start of your business startup. You just need to focus on what you can do in an effective and best manner. Once, you have found the answer to this, go ahead and communicate your strengths along with the constancy.

There have been many times, when company’s acquisitions don’t fit in the parent organization’s brand architecture. For an instance, Microsoft acquired Razorfish—a major internet and technological innovation company—when it bought aQuantive—a digital marketing service company—for about $6 billion in 2007. But a couple of years later, Microsoft sold off Razorfish for about $530 million.

You can simply consider as, Razorfish wasn’t a good fit for Microsoft’s brand strategy.

  • A Brand Is Your Business Model:

Keep on maximizing the potential of your brand by supporting it enthusiastically and challenging it with even more power. Along with the changing trends and moods of your customers, you too will have to modify your products and services. However, at Anakeen Business, you can get the information about the transforming moods of your customers. Think of personal brands like Richard Branson, Martha Stewart or Barack Obama. These individuals almost built their businesses right atop their personal brand, and everything they offer are an extension of that brand promise.

  • Be Consistent:
Be Consistent

If it wasn’t enough, keep consistency in imparting your message and keep it different from rest of the others. If you can’t do things faster, then you need to keep a consistent pace of your business and own your position on all the reference points for all the things whatever you do. For an instance, Obama, focused on only one message during his 2008 presidential campaign: Change. Automobile major BMW has always been branded as the “ultimate driving machine”.

  • Start Inside Out:

Begin everything and work on each and every factor that relates to your organization. For an instance, all those people who are working for you can let you know that what they do possess a perception about your company. In other words, it can also be concluded as what they think of your brand. And that is where you can hit a game changing masterstroke in front of your customers.

This is exactly where, you can begin differentiating your products and services and your business startups from rest that are available in the marketing industry. Work in such a way that can put a powerful impact even beyond the walls of the marketing. This is how online apparel store, Zappos empowers its employees to build customer perception about the brand.

  • Connect At The Emotional Level:
Connect At The Emotional Level

There are many organizations that consider the product a brand and limit it just to the logo, name, website, public relations exercise or the television commercials. However, these are not just a brand but are the tools of the brand management. A brand is a much larger thing. In other words, it can be said as it a desirable idea that is manifested in the products or services, places, people, and experience.

Starbucks, that serves people coffee, created a third space of experience that was exclusive and desirable lest people do prefer them and pay for the overpriced coffee.

What this basically signifies? It means, you need to sell something which satisfies not only the physical needs of the people but also their emotional instincts. Get them attracted towards your products by making your simple thing in a different manner. Slowly and steadily, people will surely start to identify you and your brand as well.

  • Empower Brand Champions:

Appreciate those people as well who love your brand and help to drive home a message, lest they can be a part of the brand building process. In case your brand stops telling that what you should do and what you shouldn’t, it’s about time you need to start evaluating the brand’s promise that you made earlier with your target audiences.

Just go and speak to someone who is working in an organization like Apple’s retail outlet, for instance, and you will clearly be able to see that how passionate they are about their organization. It is something like a culture and a lifestyle over there.

I hope that you might have got a clear picture on how you should go ahead with the brand management of your products and services. However, in case, you want to look forward a helping hand for your business startup, then you can reach out to the professionals of Anakeen Business. Their experts solutions can assist you stand strong in the competitive field of Indian market.
