Getting the NBFC P2P registration from RBI is considered quite profitable these days due to their excellent lending model and low risks. However, understanding all the norms and regulations related to NBFC P2P registration and operation could become trickier for entrepreneurs and businessmen. Hence, collaborating with a reputed legal firm becomes necessary to get assistance in the registration process and post-registration compliance norms. These firms have experts who will file the error-free application for registration and take up all the registration formalities on behalf of the business. This saves a lot of work hours and money for the entrepreneurs applying for registration.
