What is an NBFC?

To define NBFCs, these are the companies where more than 85% of their consolidated annual gross sales or consolidated assets are financial in nature. NBFCs are the companies which are 'predominantly engaged in financial activity'. Investment banks, mortgage lenders, money market funds, insurance firms, hedge funds, private equity funds, and P2P lenders are examples of NBFCs. Non-banking financial companies (NBFC) are now highly and hugely reputed. Because of their all-round and lavish support to the traders, industrialists, investors and public borrowers, NBFCs are now considered as an excellent and vital complementary to the institutions in the financial and banking sector of India. NBFCs mainly cover industrial and commercial loans, public deposits, investments funds and chit business, leasing, stocks and bonds, insurance business, hire-purchasing and other activities similar to these.

 

Registration Number

Only after the proper and flawless registration under NBFC category, Reserve bank of India issues the NBFC registration number. It is the identity of the company and is essential for its reliability and tax related calculations. In addition, they provide the legal security to the concerned company. In order to procure the registration number, NBFCs must fulfil the conditions set out for the category under which it is willing to register. NBFC registration is essential for any company doing business in these areas and the total financial flow in its business is increased to more than 50% and is duly registered under the Companies act 2013.
