BENEFIT of a One Person Company

Separate legal entity

The one person Company (OPC) is legal entity. The members of an OPC have no liability to the creditors of an OPC for such debts. The death, bankruptcy or withdrawal of capital by one member does not affect the OPC’s ability to trade.

Limited liability

The most significant reason for shareholders to incorporate the ‘one person Company’ is certainly the desire for the limited liability. Shareholders are only liable for their share of money they invested in the company. Their Personal assets are safe.


There are many allowances and tax deductible cost that can be offset against the profits of an OPC and the tax would be paid after deducting many costs incurred by members. In addition to that the current level of Corporation Tax is lower than income tax rates.

Less Compliance

The compliance procedure becomes simpler as they have been provided many exemptions in comparison to Private Limited Company. In other words less compliance has to be done by one Person Company and intimation to the roc compression to other structure is very less.

Easy to Get Fund

Banking and financial institutions prefer to lend money to the company rather than proprietary firms. In most of the situations Banks insist the entrepreneurs to convert their firm into a Private Limited company before sanctioning funds. So it is better to register your start-up as a One Person private limited rather than proprietary firm.

Easy to Transfer of company

OPC can transfer the entire share holding to any person who is concerned. These changes of ownership, saves the time and money. If in the case of the member dies, the nominee undertakes the affairs of the company so automatically holding of member will transfer to nominee.
