    Advantages & Disadvantages of Private Limited Company


    Limited Liability of Shareholders (Owners)

    Limited Liability implies that the owners or shareholders of the company are not personally liable to pay debts of the business. They are only responsible for the unpaid shares of the capital of the company. In order to reap the Limited Liability Benefit, the owner needs to comply with all laws.

    Perpetual Succession

    Perpetual Existence implies that the company is unaffected by the death of the owner or the transfer of its shares to a new establishment. The best part of perpetual existence is that a company will continue to exist, no matter how many directors, officers, and shareholders join or leave.

    Easy Transfer of Ownership

    The shares of a company are considered as movable property and are freely transferable. A shareholder can transfer shares to any person by just executing a share transfer form and handing over the share certificate of the Company. However, such share transfer must be done under the applicable provisions of the articles of association.

    Option to Sell the business

    The companies can be sold or transferred in its entirety, and the entire process of selling the company is easy and straightforward. You must have seen many exits at a very high premium price to the potential buyer of the company, for example, the sale of Flipkart to Walmart.

    Can a company own property in its own name

    Like a person a private limited company can purchase, sell, own, possess, enjoy and transfer property rights to anyone in its own name. Moreover, no claim can be made upon the property of the company by the shareholder as long as it exists.

    Tax Advantages

    The tax rate for a company incorporated in India is the lowest in the world. For a manufacturing company, the tax rate is 15% whereas for all other kinds of companies such as trading, services etc. the Income Tax Rate is 22%. There are some nominal surcharge and cess on and over the above said corporate Income Tax Rates.

    Easy to Raise Money Through Private Placement

    Raising money in a proprietary concern, partnership, or LLP is complicated and cumbersome. A company can get investment from a closed group of people up to 200 shareholders by way of private placement is straightforward for a company. The company can either allot new shares to the investors/angel investors on a price higher than the valuation of the stock. Since the companies act prescribes a clear and precise method to raise funds; hence this is a preferred choice for new startups.

    Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)

    Traditionally the FDI comes to a company form of business, and The Indian companies may allot new shares to an overseas investor, or enter into a joint venture and create a new company for a specific purpose. When it comes to funding and FDI, the company is the best choice.

    Capacity to Sue and to be Sued in Its Own Name

    Private Limited Companies enjoy the advantage to carry out legal proceedings and to bring a suit in the court of law. Just like any other type of person, a company being an independent legal entity, can initiate legal action against any other person and similarly can be sued in the court of law.


    Restricted Access to The Stock Exchanges

    The private limited companies can not issue shares to the public at large because of two main reasons. The maximum number of the shareholder in a private limited company can be only up to 200, and a private limited company can not issue prospectus neither it can advertise calling public at large to subscribe to its shares. In case you wish to avail the benefits of the public issue, then you should incorporate a public limited company.

    Public Disclosure of Company Data at MCA

    The details of the company are available for public inspection and view at the website of the ministry of corporate affairs. On payment of a nominal fee, any person can obtain copies of the records of a company from the MCA. Every year a company is required to file an annual return after its AGM, the forms submitted at the time of filing the annual return is also available for public view. The data of a private limited company thus can be used by competitors. Though in a way, we can say that this is not a disadvantage because stakeholders can very well verify the genuineness of a company.

    Increased Cost of Legal Compliance.

    Every company is required to get its books audited at the end of the financial year, and file ROC Returns after holding the annual general meeting of the company. For the companies which are doing good business and growing, the audit and statutory disclosures are in a way useful to protect the interest of the shareholders of the company. However, where the number of transactions is meagre and in some cases where the company is in losses, the legal cost of compliance is high if you compare with an LLP Form of business. Hence, where the scale of operations is going to be less, then we recommend registering an LLP.

    Limited Personal Control

    The concept of a company involves investment by several persons in the company and with the dilution of the stake the control on the company also weakens as other stakeholders will also have a proportional say in the decision making. Though most of the decisions of the company can be taken by a simple majority vote in the shareholders meeting, however for certain critical decisions, a special resolution is required. For passing a special resolution consent of 75% or more is needed.

    Issue of shares/transfer - Only among existing shareholders

    A private limited company is a closed group of people; hence the entry of outsiders is restricted. The new issue of shares needs to be offered first to the existing shareholders before selling to outside investors. Similarly, for the transfer of shares to any third party, the consent of the board of directors is required.
