One Person Company Registration

As the name suggests, an OPC or One Person Company is a format of business where the company is owned by a single person. There is no more than a single director or more than a single member. Being a singly-handled company, it is easy to manage it. If you are an entrepreneur who seeks singular success, you can register an OPC in India.

The definition of a One Person Company is explained in Sub Section 62 of section 3 of the Companies Act, 2013, which states: “One Person Company means a company which features only one Member”. Unlike a private limited company, this single company registration with a single director doesn’t need minimum two directors. However, like a private limited company, the OPC registration in India does provide you with limited Liability.

OPC Formation can be done as an:

  1. OPC limited with Guarantee
  2. OPC limited with Share Capital
  3. OPC unlimited company

After the registration of a One Person Company, there are following benefits that can be enjoyed:

  1. Limited Liability: As the business entity is a company, the entrepreneurs have their assets protected from the failings of the company.
  2. Separate legal entity: an OPC Company is a separate legal entity from the owner.
  3. Less number of compliances: For a One Person Company, the number of compliances is less.
