Benefits Of OPC Registration

1.Legal status :

The OPC receives a separate legal entity status from the member. The separate legal entity of the OPC gives protection to the single individual who has incorporated it. The liability of the member is limited to his/her shares, and he/she is not personally liable for the loss of the company.  Thus, the creditors can sue the OPC and not the member or director.

2.Easy to obtain funds :

Since OPC is a private company, it is easy to go for fundraising through venture capitals, angel investors, incubators etc. The Banks and the Financial Institutions prefer to grant loans to a company rather than a proprietorship firm. Thus, it becomes easy to obtain funds.

3.Less compliance’s :

The Companies Act, 2013 provides certain exemptions to the OPC with relation to compliance’s. The OPC need not prepare the cash flow statement. The company secretary need not sign the books of accounts and annual returns and be signed only by the director.

4.Easy incorporation :

It is easy to incorporate OPC as only one member and one nominee is required for its incorporation. The member can be the director also. The minimum authorised capital for incorporating OPC is Rs.1 lakh but there is no minimum paid-up capital requirement. Thus, it is easy to incorporate as compared to the other forms of company.

5.Easy to manage :

Since a single person can establish and run the OPC, it becomes easy to manage its affairs. It is easy to make decisions, and the decision-making process is quick. The ordinary and special resolutions can be passed by the member easily by entering them into the minute book and signed by the sole member. Thus, running and managing the company is easy as there won’t be any conflict or delay within the company.

6.Perpetual succession :

The OPC has the feature of perpetual succession even when there is only one member. While incorporating the OPC, the single-member needs to appoint a nominee. Upon the member’s death, the nominee will run the company in the member’s place.

Why register an LLP?

Registering an LLP offers many benefits with the main benefit being the limited liability of partners. The members of the firm are only liable for a small amount of debt incurred by it. This is entirely different from proprietorship and partnership where the personal assets of directors and partners are not protected if the business becomes bankrupt. Registering an LLP in India offers the following benefits-

  • LLP is a separate legal entity from the partners. Each partner can sue the other in case a situation arises. It has an uninterrupted existence that follows perpetual succession, i.e., the partners might leave, but the business remains. A term of dissolution has to be mutually agreed on for the firm to dissolve.

  • Transferring the ownership of LLP is also simple. A person can quickly be inducted in as a designated partner and the ownership switches to them.

  • LLPs having a capital amount less than 25 lakhs and turnover below 40 lakhs per year do not require any formal audits. It makes registering as LLP beneficial for small businesses and startups.

  • An LLP has partners, who own and manage the business. This is different from a private limited company, whose directors may be different from shareholders. For this reason, VCs do not invest in the LLP structure.

  • An LLP can own or acquire property because it is recognized as a juristic person. Partners of LLP cannot claim the property as theirs.
