What is a One Person Company?

It is very easy to register for an OPC (One Person Company) with AapkaTax which offers OPC registration from Rs.10899/- onwards.

What all Comprises for a One Person Company (OPC) Registration:

The very concept of One Person Company in India was announced in the Companies Act, 2013 to support entrepreneurs to start a venture on their very own by providing them the freedom to create an economic entity with a single person. The very biggest advantage of an OPC is that it comprises of a single member only whereas for maintaining a Private Limited Company or a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), a minimum of two members are needed compulsorily. A One Person Company is different from its promoter. It offers limited liability protection to its single shareholder, while also having continuation in business and being quite simple to incorporate which is very similar to a company.

Despite it providing ownership to a single individual, an OPC also has a few limitations. Such as, every One Person Company (OPC) has to elect a nominee Director in the MOA and AOA of the company, who can become the owner of the OPC in case the one-person Director is disabled somehow. Also, the One Person Company has to be changed into a Private Limited Company if it goes over an annual turnover of Rs.2 crores and the owner should also file audited financial statements with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs at the end of each Financial Year as is with all types of Companies. Hence, it becomes paramount for the Entrepreneur to carefully think about all the features of a One Person Company preceding its incorporation.
