Convert Sole Proprietorship To Private Limited Company In India

A Proprietorship Company Or Famously Known As Sole Proprietorship Company Is A Type Of Business That Is Owned By A Single Person. Here, There Is No Legal Distinction Between The Owner Of The Business And The Business. The Owner Is In Direct Control Of All Aspects Related To The Business, Is Accountable For Its Functioning And Completely Owns Its Profits Or Losses.

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.

Advantages Of Private Limited Company

  • The Liability Of Shareholders Is Limited To Their Shares. Financial Risks Are A Part Of Business But To Be Able To Minimize Them And Sustain The Business Progress Is Imperative. In An LTD, If Due To Any Reason The Company Were To Be Closed The Shareholders Would Not Risk Losing Their Personal Assets.
  • Risk Of Takeovers Is Minimized When Two Shareholders Trade Shares As The Selling And Buying Of Shares Is Possible Only When Both Parties Have Given Their Consent.
  • Private Limited Companies Are Incorporated; Hence It Continues To Exist Even If The Owner Dies.
  • The Capital Or Options Of Raising Investment In Business Is Not Restricted To One Person, Which Is The Case In Sole Proprietorship.
  • Private Limited Companies Pay Corporate Tax On Their Profits. Dividends That The Shareholders Receive Are Not Taxed. Taxes Are Determined As Per Their Personal Income Tax Rate.

  • The Burden Of The Operations And Running Of The Business Falls On One Person In Sole Proprietorship. Whereas, In LTD, The Business Is Much Easier To Manage.
