One person company is an improved and better form of a sole proprietorship firm. One person companies are a great business organization structure for medium-sized businesses. One person company is an improved and better form of a sole proprietorship firm and thus conversion of sole proprietorship into One Person Company is a good business decision. This business structure gives the single promoter a full control over the company and at the same time limiting his liabilities to safeguard his personal assets. The owner of this company is a shareholder. Similar to Private Company, OPC may also appoint a distinct individual as director for its management. Appointment of a nominee is mandatory in case of OPC.

Benefits of OPC over sole proprietorship

  • Separate Legal Entity hence limited liability
    Protection of the company’s personal assets assures that the owner has limited liability to the extent of his/her own share.
  • Opens better business avenue’s
    Large organizations prefer to deal with OPC  instead of proprietorship firms. OPC is registered just like a private company and private companies are the trusted form of business which makes it easy for them to get funding from the financial institutions. It gives suppliers and customers a sense of confidence in the business.
  • An easy to manage the structure
    The structure of OPC is manageable as there is only one member. There is no requirement to hold an annual or added ordinary general meeting. There is no requirement to wait for anyone’s approval as there is only one person who is the single authority to make decisions.
  • Organized Structure
    The OPC gives the company a structure similar to a private limited company and hence make it organized with the benefit of limited liability. A sole proprietorship does not provide an organized structure.
