Convert Private Limited To A One Person Company In India

A Private Limited Company Or Famously Known As LTD Is A Privately Held Company. This Implies That The Business Limits Owner Liability To Its Shares And Limits Number Of Shareholders To 50. It Also Restricts Shareholders From Trading Shares Publicly.

One Person Company Is A Business Entity Run By A Sole Owner With The Benefit Of Limited Liability. One Person Company Is A Separate Legal Entity From Its Members, Offering Protection To Its Shareholders. Every One Person Company Must Nominate A Member For The Directorial Position In The MOA/AOA, In Case Of Absence Of The Prime Director.
