One Person Company Registration

Know More About One Person Company Registration

The Companies Act of 2013 created the concept of One Person Company Registration to provide limited liability to individual entrepreneurs with innovative technological business concepts. 

One Person Company  will enjoy the same advantages as a standard Limited Liability Company. A person who lacks a co-founder to launch a firm can form a One-Person Limited Liability Company and benefit from the provisions of the Companies Act of 2013. Someone who wants to test his business idea may establish a One Person Company.

Once he determines that the initiative is viable, he can approach venture capitalists for investment in equity share capital and convert the company into a standard Private Limited Company. The Registrar of Companies governs companies, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, and the governing law is the Companies Act of 2013.


If you are an individual with ambitions for long-term growth and expansion, One Person Company Registration is your best option.


One Person Company registration in India is conducted exclusively online. If you want to register your business, Business Setup in India is the team for you. Register your OPC company with us online today, and you’ll be operating a registered company within 10 business days.

One Person Company Registration Benefits:

Limited Liability:

The member of the company has limited liability. The Director or Shareholder is not personally responsible for the company’s debts. For instance, when a company defaults on the repayment of a debt or loan, the personal assets of the Director or Shareholder are protected. They can only recover the loan amount by selling the company’s assets.

Control of Ownership:

Since only one member in a Person Company exists, the individual has complete control over the company’s ownership. It is a one-person company, and whatever decisions they make are final. As there would be just one shareholder in this company, they are not needed to consult with other shareholders.

Employee Attraction:

Attracting Talented People Talented employees prefer Company organizations over Partnership or Sole Proprietorship. By offering Employee Stock Options, a company can retain talented workers. Employees of reputable companies can readily obtain low-interest loans from banks.

Director Dual Role:

The Director may also be an employee. He can rent or lease his property to the company and collect rent, grant the company a loan and receive a loan from the company, and provide the company with goods or services in exchange for payment.

Separate Entity:

Members of the Company may come and go, but the company itself cannot, indicating that the members and the company are distinct entities. A company can own and sell assets in its name, sue, and be sued in a court of law.

Easy Exit Option:

The member of the company can quickly leave by signing a Share Transfer Form. Members of Listed Companies can readily sell their shares on the Stock Market. For Private Limited Companies, a change in ownership is accomplished by transferring shares and completing Share Transfer papers.
