One Person Company (OPC) Registration

OPC allows a single owner to enjoy the benefits of a private limited company, such as limited liability, separate legal identity, perpetual existence, and easy access to funding, while still maintaining full control over the business. Unlike a sole proprietorship, OPC provides limited liability protection to its owner, which means the owner's personal assets are not at risk in case of any liabilities or losses incurred by the company.
