There is a need to register a branch in the same name of the TN Based company. The registration as per companies act is not required.A Board resolution passed by the TN Based company that a branch be opened in Karnatk is pased. It is assumed that the business is also being done in TN and the registered office contiunues in TN. But it is required under various other laws in karnataka like 1) Shops & Establishment Act, 2) Profesional Tax Act, 3) Regn under KVAT (sales tax act) and other relevant acts specific to business

We are a registered company "www.technixindia.com" and our registered office is in Patna, Bihar. Now we want to open a Branch Office in Karnataka and the activity that we intend to do is 1) Water Tank Cleaning and we might also add 2) Software Development wing (an year later).

Could you please let us know if we will need to register our BRANCH office at Karnataka(since the registered office is in Bihar)?

Any help or pointers would be of great help to us.

Thanks & Regards,

Under Companies act, only a board resolution need to be passed for opening up of branch in Karnataka.

Registrations will be required various local laws like Value added Tax (Sales Tax) / Professional Tax / Labour laws / PF / ESI Etc locally.

If your service comes under service tax and you do billing from Bihar and karnataka also, then one more registration is required under service tax act.

You may also have to apply for a seperate Income tax TAN for the branch sepeately (if need

arises - I am not expert on TDS - so get that angle clarified )
