Meaning of One Person Company (OPC)

A One Person Company is a company that is owned by a single shareholder. The sole shareholder of the OPC must be an individual who is an Indian citizen, and a resident Indian. Even though, as its only owner, the shareholder is entitled to pocket all the income and profits of the OPC, his liabilities towards the business are restricted to the unpaid amount of his subscribed capital only. There is no minimum paid up capital required to set up an OPC in India. However, the Companies Act 2013 prescribes a maximum paid-up capital of Rs. 50 lacs and a maximum average annual turnover of Rs. 2 crores for an OPC registration in India.

Stepwise process for OPC registration in India

One Person Company Registration in India is a mandatory requirement under the Companies Act, 2013. The process of online OPC registration begins by filing an application to the Registrar of Companies, along with all the prescribed supporting documents. The application can be signed by any director of the company using a Digital Signature Certificate. After submission of the application, the Registrar examines it thoroughly. If he is satisfied with the application and the documents submitted, he shall register OPC and issue a Certificate of OPC Registration online within a week.
STEP 1 – Documentation
Documentation plays a significant role in OPC Registration. The primary documents of the applicant director like PAN, ID proof, and address proof are to be submitted along with recent utility bills like electricity bill, water bill, or telephone bill of the registered business address and an NOC from the owner of premises. The list of documents required for OPC registration has been mentioned below for your reference.
STEP 2 – Selection of Name for OPC Registration
The guidelines for an eligible name of a company have been mentioned in the Companies Act, 2013. The name of a Company should be unique and must not be identical to the name of an existing company or LLP. Besides, it must also not be identical to any applied or registered trademark. Since, an OPC is registered as a private limited company, its name must not contain words that show patronage of the government, which is “undesirable” in the opinion of the Government. To check the availability of eligible names, you can subscribe to our name search facility as well.
STEP 3 – Obtain DSC of the applicant director
DSC is the digital equivalent of physical signature and is issued under the Information Technology Act. For One Person Company registration, the application filed with the ROC must be signed by the applicant director using a digital signature certificate only. Therefore, we may infer that the process of filing the application for OPC Registration starts with the issue of a digital signature for the applicant director of the Company.
STEP 4 – Name Approval for OPC Registration
Once you have selected a valid name for your One Person Company, you shall have to reserve it with the Registrar of Companies. For this purpose, you can either file the RUN application, or PART A of the SPICe+ application for OPC registration. The RUN application provides two chances of resubmission, after the names proposed in the application are invalidated. However, PART A of the SPICe+ application provides only one chance of resubmission, if the names proposed in the application are invalidated. You can propose two names per application in both RUN and PART A of SPICe+.
STEP 5 – Spice Form Filing to ROC for OPC Registration
After the approval of the name of the OPC, the applicant can proceed to filing the application for OPC registration available in PART B of the SPICe+ application. You shall be required to furnish basic details of the OPC, including its name, address, DIN of all directors, names of all shareholders, capital of the company, proposed business activity of the company, etc. After filling the required details, you can upload all necessary supporting documents, and sign the application using the applicant director’s DSC. The application shall be submitted to the Registrar of Companies.
STEP 6 – Issuance of Certificate of OPC Registration and allotment of CIN
The final step of the OPC registration is the Issuance of Certificate of OPC Registration, after the successful verification of the details furnished and documents attached with the application. The Certificate of Registration issued to the OPC is conclusive evidence that the ROC has completed the one person company registration online. Along with the Certificate of OPC Registration, the ROC also allots a Corporate Identification Number to the OPC as its unique identity.
STEP 7 – PAN & TAN Number for the OPC
Immediately after receiving the Certificate of Registration, the Department of Income Tax allots PAN and TAN to the OPC. BOth these documents are required for fulfilling tax related compliances. While PAN is required for payment of Income Tax and filing of ITR, TAN provides the entitlement to OPCs for collecting and deducting tax at source. The PAN and TAN numbers are printed on the Certificate of OPC Registration issued to the OPC, after which the e-Pan and e-Tan documents are sent via email.
