One Person Company

The concept of One Person Company [OPC] was newly introduced under The Companies Act, 2013, thereby enabling Entrepreneur(s) carrying on the business in the Sole-Proprietor form of business to enter into a Corporate Framework. Though it is one form of the Company, however it carries certain features of a proprietorship concern and has to abide by far less formalities, in comparison to Private or Public Limited Companies.

BUSINESS FORMATION














Features of One Person Company (OPC)

  • Single Shareholder:
    Only a Resident Indian citizen shall be eligible to incorporate a One Person Company. The term “Resident Indian” means a person who has stayed in India for a period of not less than 182 days during the immediately preceding one calendar year.
  • Nominee for the Shareholder:
    The Shareholder shall nominate another Resident Indian Citizen to act as the nominee of the shareholders in case of death/incapacity of the original shareholder.
  • Director:
    The OPC must have a minimum of one Director with maximum number of Directors being 15. The same person can act as the shareholder and the member at the same time.

Advantages of OPC:

  • Separate Legal Entity: One Person company is a separate legal entity and capable of doing everything that an entrepreneur would do.
  • Less incorporation Costs: The initial cost to incorporate OPC is less as compared to a Private or a Public Company.
  • Lesser Compliance Burden: OPC is liable to comply with fewer regulatory burden, in comparison to a Private Limited Company or a Public Limited Company.
  • Better Reputation: A person carrying on business through a Company presents a better picture about its business in contrast to person carrying out business through proprietorship, thus increased probability to receive loans from banks and other finance companies.
  • Adequate Safeguards: In the event of death of the only Shareholder, the ownership rights of the Company will automatically come in the hands of the Nominee.
  • Complete Control: Since the Company is owned by a single person, he/ she shall be in complete control of the functioning of the Company.
