One Person Company Registration


The approach of One Person Company Registration in India was introduced through the Companies Act, 2013 to support a business who on their own are able of starting a deal by granting them to create a single person economic body. One of the biggest benefits of a One Person Company is that there can be only one member in an OPC, while at least two members are needed for including and maintaining a Private Limited Company. Similar to a Company, a One Person Company is a separate legal body from its supporter, offering limited liability protection to its single shareholder, while having continuity of business and being easy to include.

• Though a One Person Company allows a lone administrator to operate a corporate body with limited liability protection, an OPC does have a few disadvantages. For example, every One Person Company must appoint a nominee Director in the MOA and AOA of the company - who will become the owner of the One Person Company in case the sole Director is infirm. Also, a One Person Company must be changed into a Private Limited Company if it intersects an annual turnover of Rs.2 crores and must file audited financial statements with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs at the closing of every Financial Year like all types of organizations. Therefore, it is important for the administrator to carefully consider the features of a One Person Company prior to inclusion.
