The concept of One Person Company (OPC) in India was introducd by the Companies Act, 2013. In the old Companies Act, 1956, a minimum of 2 directors & shareholders were required to form a private limited company. However, in case of a One Person Company, only 1 person is required to form a private limited company. Hence the name, One Person Company,. It was introduced to support entrepreneurs who on their own are capable of starting a venture by allowing them to create a single person economic entity. Similar to a Company, an OPC is a separate legal entity from its members, offers limited liability prtection to its shareholders, has continuity of business & is easy to incorporate.
An OPC does have a few limitations. For instance, every OPC must nominate a nominee Director in the MOA or AOA who will become the owner of the OPC in case the promoter Director is disabled. Also, OPC must be converted into a Private Limited Company if it crosses an annual turnover of Rs.2 crores and must file audited financial statements with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs at the end of each Financial Year. Therefore, it is important for the Entrepreneur to carefully consider the features of OPC prior to incorporation.
