Register One Person Company


One Person Company was introduced in 2014 to promote entrepreneurship. Section 2(62) of the Companies Act, 2013 defines “one person company” as a company which has only one person as member. An OPC is treated just like a Private limited company.

One Person Company is different from sole proprietorship. OPC ensures limited liability to the owner of the company thus saving the entrepreneur from risking his personal assets in case company is incurring huge losses. cialis generic cost

  • OPC cannot be incorporated or converted into a section 8 company.
