One person company registration

The introduction of OPC in the legal system is a move that would encourage corporatization of micro-businesses and entrepreneurship with a simpler legal regime so that the small entrepreneur is not compelled to devote considerable time, energy, and resources to complex legal compliances. This will not only enable individual capabilities to contribute to economic growth but also generate employment opportunities. One Person Company of sole-proprietor and company form of business has been provided with concessional /relaxed requirements under the Companies Act, 2013. With the implementation of the Companies Act, 2013, a single national person can constitute a Company, under the One Person Company (OPC)concept.

As per provision of section 2(62) of the Companies Act, 2013 defined (62) “one person company” means a company that has only one person as a member.A single promoter has full authority over the company and he will be the sole shareholder and director of the company. However, if a one-person company has an average turnover of Rs. 2 crores for three consecutive years, it has to be converted into either a private or a public limited company within six months.

Advantages:

  • Limited liability: In a one-person private limited company, only business investment is lost, personal assets of the directors are safe.
  • Separate Legal Entity: The limited liability of the members enables the creditors to sue the OPC and not the member.
  • Better image: One Person Company is a popular business structure that Corporate Customers and Vendors prefer to deal with over proprietorship firms.
  • Easy to raise funds: A one-person company is very easy to manage as there is no need for Annual General Meetings and other compliances.
  • Completely controlled by a Single Owner: This makes it easier to take quick decisions and also execute them.

Formation of OPC [Rule 3]

  • Only a natural person who is an Indian citizen and resident in India­­-
    • shall be eligible to incorporate a one Person Company;
    • shall be a nominee for the sole member of a One Person Company.
