Comparison of Proprietorship With One Person Company
Feature ⇓ Sole Proprietorship One Person Company
Meaning The word sole denotes single, and proprietorship is for the ownership. The sole proprietorship is the most common form of business for tiny business in India, where a single individual owns and controls it. The OPC is a fusion of sole proprietorship and the corporate form of business. The Companies Act, 2013, for the first time, introduced the OPC to enable a single person to open a company with a simplified compliance regime.
Registration No formal registration of sole proprietorship is required as there is no specific law of parliament or state that regulates the proprietorship business. That is why it is so simple to start and manage. A one-person company is incorporated under the Companies Act, 2013. The process is simple and online. Only one person is required to start the OPC.
Distinct Legal Entity A sole proprietorship firm is not a separate legal entity from that of its proprietor. The proprietor and the proprietorship is the same thing. OPC is a separate legal entity, and the shareholder/director of the OPC are different from that of the OPC.
Liability The proprietor is personally liable for all the liabilities and debts of the business. To pay off these liabilities, the personal properties of the proprietor can also be attached. In an OPC the single shareholder is not liable for all the liabilities or debts of the company, and instead, he/she is responsible for paying only the sum which may be outstanding from her subscribed share capital.
Number of Members A single Individual can start a Sole Proprietorship Firm, where he alone will invest all the capital and shall be entitled to all the profits of the firm. The OPC can be owned by only one Individual, also known as the sole shareholder. However, the sole owner of the OPC has to nominate another person to become his or her nominee.
Minimum Capital You can start the proprietorship firm with any amount of capital. It means there is no minimum or maximum capital prescribed as such for a proprietorship firm. There is no prescribed minimum capital as such. It means you may incorporate an OPC with any capital as you desire. After the 2021 budget, there is no limit on maximum capital.
Succession The proprietorship business lacks the benefit of perpetual succession. With the demise of the proprietor, the firm also ends its life. The proprietor and the proprietorships are one and the same. The OPC is recognised as a separate legal entity in the eyes of the law and the business is transferred to the nominee after the demise of the proprietor.
Separate Property As there is no distinction between the the owner (proprietorship) and the sole proprietorship firm as such, the firm can not own property or assets in its name. An OPC being a separate legal entity is capable under the law to own the property in the name of one person company.
