Benefits Of OPC Registration
1.Legal status :
The OPC receives a separate legal entity status from the member. The separate legal entity of the OPC gives protection to the single individual who has incorporated it. The liability of the member is limited to his/her shares, and he/she is not personally liable for the loss of the company. Thus, the creditors can sue the OPC and not the member or director.
2.Easy to obtain funds :
Since OPC is a private company, it is easy to go for fundraising through venture capitals, angel investors, incubators etc. The Banks and the Financial Institutions prefer to grant loans to a company rather than a proprietorship firm. Thus, it becomes easy to obtain funds.
3.Less compliance's :
The Companies Act, 2013 provides certain exemptions to the OPC with relation to compliance's. The OPC need not prepare the cash flow statement. The company secretary need not sign the books of accounts and annual returns and be signed only by the director.
4.Easy incorporation :
It is easy to incorporate OPC as only one member and one nominee is required for its incorporation. The member can be the director also. The minimum authorised capital for incorporating OPC is Rs.1 lakh but there is no minimum paid-up capital requirement. Thus, it is easy to incorporate as compared to the other forms of company.
5.Easy to manage :
Since a single person can establish and run the OPC, it becomes easy to manage its affairs. It is easy to make decisions, and the decision-making process is quick. The ordinary and special resolutions can be passed by the member easily by entering them into the minute book and signed by the sole member. Thus, running and managing the company is easy as there won’t be any conflict or delay within the company.
6.Perpetual succession :
The OPC has the feature of perpetual succession even when there is only one member. While incorporating the OPC, the single-member needs to appoint a nominee. Upon the member’s death, the nominee will run the company in the member’s place.

BENEFITS OF INCORPORATING AN OPC
No personal liability to the owners of a company.
Easier to raise funds and loans from banks.
1.No Minimum Capital
There is No minimum capital is required to form a One Person Company. It can be registered even with Rs. 10,000 as total Authorized Share capital.
2.Separate Legal Entity
An OPC enjoys the benefit of Separate Legal Identity which clearly states that assets and liabilities of the business are not the assets and liabilities of the Directors or shareholders.
A shareholder or the owner of a Company has a limited liability towards the company. His/her liability is limited up to the shares subscribed by him/her.
For the purpose of Annual filing and other compliances, One Person Company is treated as a Private Limited Company. However, it is exempted from many compliances. It does not have to hold AGM every year.
All the information relating to the one person company are made available in a public database. This feature makes it easy to authenticate the existence of the business that ultimately helps in improving business credibility.
The company keeps on existing in the eyes of law even in the case of death, insolvency, the bankruptcy of any of its member or shareholder. It continues as a legal person until it is legally dissolved.
Is there any difference between One-Person Company and Sole Proprietorship?
In an OPC a single person can run a company limited by shares and in sole proprietorships, the entity is owned by a person where there is no distinction between the owner and the business. Here is the difference between them:
In an OPC as it is a separate legal entity the liability of the shareholder is limited to unpaid subscription money in his name. On the other hand, the liability of the sole proprietorship is such that any claims made against him will be made against the business.
An OPC can be considered in the same Tax Bracket of taxation as the other private companies because though the OPC is incorporated under the Companies Act,2013 the concept of OPCs does not exist in the tax laws. On the contrary, the Sole proprietorships are required to file the Income-tax returns as the proprietorship and the proprietor are considered to be one under the tax law.
A nominee is appointed by the member. The Nominee will run the Company in the event of death of the member or incapacitation. But in the case of the sole proprietorship, this can only happen by executing a will that may or may not is challenged in a court of law.
An OPC registered in India has to file annual returns just like a normal company and would also need to get the accounts audited for the same. Whereas the sole proprietorship would only need to get audited under the provisions of Section 44AB of the Income Tax Act,1961 once the turnover crosses the threshold.
