OPC Registration EASY TO MANAGE
OPC Registration there is no requirement to hold annual or Extra-Ordinary Meeting. Only the resolution shall be communicated to the members.

While doing business as a proprietorship firm, the personal assets of the proprietor can be at risk in the event of failure, but this is not the case for a One Person Private Limited Company, as the shareholder liability is limited to his shareholding. This means any loss or debts which are pure of business nature will not impact, personal savings or wealth of an entrepreneur.
Banking and financial institutions prefer to lend money to the company rather than proprietary firms. In most of the situations, Banks insist the entrepreneurs convert their firm into a Private Limited company before sanctioning funds.
In an OPC, a director you can receive remuneration, as a lessor, you can receive rent, as a creditor you can lend money to your own company and earn interest. Directors’ remuneration, rent, and interest are deductible expenses that reduce the profitability of the Company and ultimately bring down the taxable income of your business.
