A One Person Company (OPC) PVT. LTD. Registration is a business that is owned, managed and controlled by one person. It is one of the most prevalent forms of business in India, used by small businesses operating in the unorganized sectors. ONE PERSON COMPANY is very fast & easy to start and have very minimal regulatory compliance requirement for getting started. However, after the startup phase, ONE PERSON COMPANY offer the promoter a host of other benefits such as limited liability, separate legal entity, independent existence, transfer-ability, etc., which are desirable features for any business. Therefore, ONE PERSON COMPANY is suited for organized, small businesses that will have a unlimited existence.

The One Person Company (OPC) was recently introduced as a strong improvement over the sole proprietorship. It gives a single promoter full control over the company while limiting his/her liability to contributions to the business. This person will be the only director and shareholder (there is a nominee director, but with no power until the original director is incapable of entering into contract). So there's no chance of raising equity funding or offering employee stock options. Furthermore, if an OPC hits an average three-year turnover of over Rs. 2 crore or has a paid-up capital of over Rs. 50 lakh, it must be converted into a private limited company or public limited company within six months.
