One Person Company

OPC Registration

Prudently introduced by the Indian Companies Act of 2013, the one person companies are fast becoming popular for doing business/profession/service in various economic fields in India by entrepreneurs, professionals, businesspersons, industrialists, etc. The private limited companies or sole proprietorships can also be converted into one person companies. The most striking and impressive features of the one person companies are the following:

  • These require only one director

  • Lesser annual and regulatory compliance
  • Exemption from following strictly the provisions regarding general meetings and rotation of auditors
  • And some tax-related concessions.
