    What is a One Person Company?

    One Person Company is the new concept introduced by the Companies Act 2013. As per section 2(62), OPC is a company that has only one person who is the member, shareholder as well as director. It is the corporate form of Sole Proprietor. Furthermore, it protects Limited Liability unlike that of Sole Proprietor and Partnership firm.

    What are the Characteristics of One Person Company?

    Nominee of the Company

    The single member of the OPC is required to nominate a person who will undertake the entity after the expiry or incapacity of the member on the nominee's consent. The nominee is entitled to withdraw his consent. In such a case, the sole member is required to nominate another member. The sole member is also entitled to change the nominee by providing notice in writing to the Company. In such a case, the new nominee must file his consent with the Company.

    Member of the One Person Company

    In the first instance, an OPC shall have only one member who shall be the subscriber to MOA and the shareholder. The Company's member shall be a natural person only, and he must be an Indian citizen and resident of India. He/ she shall be a competent person as per the Indian Contract Act. Moreover, the person can be a shareholder of only one OPC at a time.

    The Companies Act, 2013 requires the Company to use the words 'One Person Company' after its name, whether the name is printed, affixed, or engraved.

    OPC has been given many exclusions, expulsions, and exemptions under the Companies Act 2013. Compliance cost in the case of OPC is higher compared to Partnership Firm and Proprietorship.
    OPC enjoys the benefit of Perpetual Succession being an incorporated entity. The owner cannot become the shareholder of more than 1 OPC at a time.
