An Overview:

The structure of the one person company (OPC) in recent times was launched as a refinement of the structure of a sole proprietorship firm. In an 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 carrying on). Also, there can be no opportunity for contributing to employee stock options or equity funding. Additionally, if an OPC has an average turnover of ₹2 crores thrice in a row and over or acquires a paid-up fund of ₹50 lakh and over, it has to be converted to a private limited company or public limited company within six months.

Benefits of OPC

Benefits of OPC Registration

Limited Liability

The directors’ personal property is always safe in a private limited company, no matter the debts of the business.

Continuous Existence

Sole Proprietorships come to an end with the death of the proprietor. As an OPC company has a separate legal identity, it would pass on to the nominee director and, therefore, continue to exist.

Greater Credibility

As an OPC needs to have its books audited annually, it has greater credibility among vendors and lending institutions.

FAQs on Register Your OPC With SPSI

OPC company registration can be done only by Indian residents, and that too only one at a time, as per the specifications of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.

All such businesses must maintain books of accounts, comply with statutory audit requirements and submit income tax returns and annual filings with the RoC.

There is no difference in capital requirement between an OPC and a private limited company. It needs an authorised capital of ₹1 lakh to begin with, but none of this actually needs to be paid-up. This means that you don’t really need to invest any money into the business.

No general advantages; though some industry-specific advantages are available. Tax is to be paid at a flat rate of 30% on profits, Dividend distribution tax applies, as does minimum alternate tax.

The cost of an OPC is only marginally lower than that of a private limited company. You’ll be shelling out around ₹12,000 to incorporate, then paying around ₹15,000 a year in compliance fees and an auditor to inspect your books.

An OPC has certain limitations. The person starting the business is its only director and shareholder. There is also a nominee director, but this person has no power whatsoever for raising equity funds or offering employee stock options. The nominee exists only to take over in case of the death or incapacitation of the director. The nominee is chosen by the director, and can be anyone, such as your spouse, parents or siblings. The nominee will need to provide identity proof during registration.

No, an individual can form only one OPC at a time. This rule applies to the nominee in an OPC, too.
