OPC Registration in Mumbai


The Companies Act, 2013 introduced a new concept of business organization. This form of organization is called One Person Company (OPC). An entrepreneur can carry on the business in the Sole-Proprietor form of business to enter into a Corporate Framework. One Person Company is a mixture of Sole-Proprietor and a corporate form of business, which means it has advantages available from both the form of organizations. Introduction of One Person Company (OPC) was presented to aid the individual entrepreneurs. One Person Company has only one member. The member needs to appoint his nominee, so that in case of death or insolvency of the member, nominee becomes the new member of OPC. A single person was not able to start a Company previously, as at least two Directors and Members are required to establish a private company, whereas, in a Public Company, three Directors and seven members are required. But now, as per Section 62 of the Company’s Act 2013, a company can be formed with just one Director and one member. It is another form of a private company.

It is a land of financial, commercial and entertainment industries (Bollywood or the film industry).

Reasons to get an OPC Registration in Mumbai


I often encountered a question that many single founders ask, that whether they can register a private limited company. OPC is already in existence but due to lack of awareness, people are still unaware of this type of company.

When you are a single owner and want to establish the business, then you can choose One Person Company (OPC) as your form of business.

Reasons as to why you should opt for One Person Company (OPC) as your form of business:-

1.     Body Corporate: One Person Company was introduced in the year 2013 and it is by nature a private limited company. Further, it is a body corporate, that means it has a separate legal existence and therefore, in the event of any legal case, it is the company that will be liable and not you personally. For instance, Mr. A got injured by using your product, now he can sue your company and demand a claim, but he cannot sue you personally because you are working under a company which is a separate legal entity.

2.     No Minimum Capital: Though it was abolished in the year 2014, but people are still not aware about it. To register a One-Person Company (OPC) in Mumbai, there is no requirement of a minimum capital amount. You can choose as per your capacity. For instance, if you want to start a company with Rs.5000, you are allowed to do it so.

3.     No High Cost for Compliance's: This is the strongest myth that people are aware of. First of all, OPC Company is the freest company than any other type. Further, compliance's under OPC are not to be afraid off, because it may cost you 8 to 10k yearly compliance that you prepare a proper legal file which can be of immense use e.g. to apply for a loan, credit card, CC limit, applying for tender etc.

4.     Easy funding: Most people are not aware that funding is based on your civil score and if you have a bad civil score then it is difficult to get the loan. However, if you have incorporated a company, then your civil score is of value because then OPC civil score will be checked and hence, you can avail loan funding even when your civil score does not allow you to.

5.     Easy hiring: Do you know the most difficult part of establishing a start-up is to build a good team and as per a research, it is found that it is easier to hire people in a private company than under proprietorship. A proprietorship is not a registered form of business and therefore has no legal existence. Hence, form a company and build a team.

6.     Easy conversion into Private Limited Company: Also, it is not that once OPC is established, it can’t be converted into a private limited company. As per law, you can easily convert the OPC into a private company by just filing a single form. However, at least 2 years must have been passed.

7.     Minimum requirements to register OPC:  Further, it is very easy to register a one-person company in Mumbai. You just need to fulfill the following requirements:

  • One founder and one nominee is required. The nominee is the person who shall take over the company in the event of the death of the sole owner.
  • PAN card, Aadhaar card, and bank statement are required for both owner and nominee.
  • Electricity bill and NOC is required for the place where the company is to be registered.

8.     Mandatory Conversion to Private Limited Company: Once the company reaches a turnover of Rs.2 Crore and the capital is increased to Rs.50 lakh then it is mandatory, that the One Person Company (OPC) is converted into a Private Limited Company, by filing a single form.

10. International Recognition: People who are involved in the export business know that how much difficult it is to establish the export business because the person abroad doesn't trust easily, so OPC Registration in India helps building a trust factor internationally.

In nature one-person Company (OPC) is a kind of small private limited company and just like other companies, its details are also available in the government domain, therefore it becomes easier to establish trust, internationally.
