Easily Register a OPC

If you want to start your own business but keep it as a separate legal entity you can opt to register your company as an OPC or one-person company. As an OPC you will have limited liability protection, which means you and your company are two separate legal entities and you are not directly liable for any debts of the company. Limited liability offers excellent protection to a risk-averse person.

In contrast, the members of a company are no more than subscribers to its memorandum of association or its shareholders. Therefore, the OPC is essentially a corporation that has only one investor as its representative.

One Person Company VS Private Limited company (Pvt. Ltd.)

The formation of One Person Company (OPC) has recently been established in India to support business enterprises owned and controlled by a sole Entrepreneur. Corporations, such as Private Limited Company, allow two or more individuals to become partners.

One Person Company VS Proprietorship/ OPC vs. Sole-proprietorship

The definition of a One Person Company (OPC) allows a single person to run a company limited by shares, while the Sole Proprietorship means an enterprise which is managed and operated by a single individual and where there is no difference between the owner and the firm.

One person company is an enhanced and better type of a sole proprietorship company and is, therefore, a smart business decision to transform sole proprietorship into one Person Company.
