I just wanted to know when does a company comes under Statutory laws?? I mean when the company has to register for the laws?? Does this comes after a company takes a minimum number of employees or when??

The statutory compliances under the labour laws start after you cross minimum 10 no of workmen strength. If its a mfg unit, factory licence is required to be taken. You also have to follow the minimum wages as per the scheduled employment in which your activity falls. If your co is in notified area of ESI, same will be applicable. Other laws such as Provident Fund etc. will be applicable after the strength crosses 20.
