What is One Person Company ?

One Person Company, commonly referred as OPC is a recently introduced new form of Company with only one member. It is a hybrid structure that combines the benefits of a sole proprietorship and company form of business. OPC is a separate legal entity distinct from its promoter and it gives single promoter full control over the company while limiting his/her liability to contributions of business.
OPC do have some limitations viz. being One person Promoter company, one cannot raise equity by issuing shares to other shareholders. Every OPC must appoint nominate director in the MOA/AOA of Company, who will become owner of OPC if the sole director/shareholder becomes dis-abled or dies. Further, if an OPC hits an average three-year turnover of over Rs. 2 crore or has a paid-up capital of over Rs. 50 lakh, it must be turned into a private limited company or public limited company within six months. Regular compliances of Audited Financial Statements preparation and submission to MCA applies even to OPC.
Name of the One Person company ends with word (OPC) Private Limited. The process of starting up of OPC is same as that of general Private Limited Company. Hence, It is mandatory to have Director Identification Number (DIN), DSC for Director, MOA and AOA to needs to be in place and necessary ROC compliances needs to be adhered by OPC.
OPC structure is advisable for Startups promoted by lone enterprenuers who wishes to retain entire control and best suited during initial phases till it cross the milestone turnovers or capital. OPC is incapable of issuing equity shares to anyone, hence if you’re looking to raise Investment through Private Equity, Angel Investors or offers Employee stock options, Private Limited Company structure is best suited for the same, since OPC cannot accommodate such arrangements.

Advantage of One Person Company:

With OPC Concept introduction by New Companies Act, 2013, now legally single individual can easily incorporate, own and control Private limited Company in more disciplined way with regulatory governance. Thus, unorganized proprietorship business can be dealt with corporate advantage under OPC model.

As against traditional sole proprietorship business, OPC scores well with corporate identity with Limited liability to Sole promoters. In OPC, promoters are liable to third parties only to the extent of their share contributions, unlike proprietorship where they are personally liable for dues and commitments of business.

OPC is one form of Companies, as an artificial legal person in the eyes of the law, distinct from its Owners. As OPC is separate legal entity, it can enter into contracts, own assets, borrow funds and also can sue or be sued in its own name.

It simply means OPC will continue to exist until legally dissolved, irrespective of death or changes in their members. Ownership of OPC will be passed on to nominee directors and continue to exist even after demise of sole Member. This provides ongoing legal existence to OPC over traditional proprietorship business.

Sole Promoter are the Owners of OPC. In Company structure, one can easily transfer ownership of OPC by share-transfer with amendment in shareholder, directors and nominees. Easy transferability feature makes OPC more flexible business model to choose among startups.

Unlike normal private limited company, OPCs are being exempted from various regulatory compliances by MCA. Like OPC need not conduct Annual general meetings, board meetings, further, there are relaxation in issue of Notices, Quorum, Chairman of meeting, no restriction on voting rights, circulation of members resolution etc. Thus, OPC has to follow lesser compliances than a private limited company which also translate in reduced cost of running business.
