      It will be referred as “ABC XYZ PRIVATE LIMITED OPC

      The positive side if you compare it with Private Limited is
      1. Just 1 person to control
      2. Easy to Manage the affairs & decision making
      3. Lesser Compliances
      4. Less Costly to operate

      Negative Side is
      1. If the turnover is higher than 2 Crore, its converted into Pvt Ltd
      2. Not for Higher Capital Company
      3. One person can open just one OPC.

      For more clarification please contact 09831013711
