The One Person Company (OPC) in recent times was launched as a good refinement over the sole proprietorship. In OPC, a single promoter gains full authority over the company thereby restricting his/her liability towards their contributions to the enterprise. Therefore, the said person will be the sole shareholder and director (however, a director nominee is present, but has zero power until the real director proves incapable of getting into the contract). Also, there can be no opportunity for contributing to employee stock options or equity funding. Additionally, if an OPC has an average hattrick turnover of Rs. 2 crores and over or acquires a paid-up fund of Rs. 50 lakh and over, it has to be converted to a private limited company or public limited company within six months.
The directors' personal property is always safe in a private limited company, no matter the debts of the business.
Sole Proprietorships come to an end with the death of the proprietor. As an OPC has a separate legal identity, it would pass on to the nominee director and, therefore, continue to exist.
As an OPC needs to have its books audited annually, it has greater credibility among vendors and lending institutions.
Firstly, the OPC director should petition or apply for the DSC otherwise known as Digital Signature Certificate, which is mandatory to file for the company registration records. For this to come through, one only needs to submit a few scanned documents; after which our agents will file the form by filling it and put it online for submission.
Once the application for the DSC is done, our agents will ask you to choose a name for your business and send us the relevant scanned documents for the same. The sent documents will be used to file for the SPICe i.e. INC-32 and the MoA is otherwise known as the Memorandum of Association and the AoA also known as the Articles of Association. Finally, at the end of this process, the Certificate of Incorporation will be processed and approved.
All companies need a registered PAN or Permanent Account Number and TAN or Tax Account Number. The application will be filed online by our representatives, however, you will be asked to courier the hard copies of the relevant and required documents yourself. Post the processing, the TAN and PAN will be dispatched to you to your registered office address only within 21 business days.
