One Person Company Registration

You must first be familiar with the definition of a one-person company in order to register one in India. One Person Companies, often known as OPCs, are a type of Private Limited Company created in accordance with the Companies Act of 2013. It is held by a single shareholder who has all of the OPC's shares, giving him or her sole access to all of the company's earnings. However, the sole shareholder's liabilities are only as great as the unpaid equity capital he subscribed to in the OPC. The fact that an OPC has limited liability actually distinguishes it from other sole proprietorships and other single-owner companies. Therefore, a One Person Company will surely be your best option if you are a business's sole owner and are not willing to share ownership with any other organization.
