OPC registration in india

One Person Company (OPC)

A One Person Company is the newest form of business in India introduced by the Companies Act, 2013 for the first time wherein only one person can open a company. However, a nominee needs to be nominated. The major advantage of OPC over the proprietorship business is the concept of Limited Liability to its shareholder. The OPC is suitable for small businesses where the turnover is not likely to cross Rs. 2 Crores and the maximum amount of capital to be invested is limited to Rs. 50 Lac. An OPC can have more than one director. However one of them must be an Indian Resident. The main limitation of OPC form of company is that only an Indian Citizen can open an OPC Company and FDI is not allowed in one person company.
