What is One Person Company?

One Person Company or OPC concept was introduced under The Companies Act, 2013, which allows the business owners to run their company solely. The Act says that a person can register a company governed by himself with no other partner or employees. Therefore, OPC is a combination of Sole-Proprietor and Company.

Basics of OPC Registration Services

In order to register for an OPC, a person must meet several terms and conditions described under Companies Act. These terms and conditions are as follows:
  • A person can register only one OPC under his name and must not be an owner or nominee in other such company.
  • The person applying for such company must be above 18. A minor cannot be the owner/share holder/nominee in any OPC.
  • The Act does not allow an OPC to get involved in Non-Banking Financial Activities like investment in shares or securities or other companies.
  • An OPC cannot be converted into a company before two years of its registration, unless the company meets the threshold limit of capital which is INR 50 Lakh or has its annual turnover equal to 2 crores. Once meeting these limits or completing two years as an OPC, the company can be converted into a Private Limited Company or LLP.
