Understanding Pvt. Ltd. Co. Model

A Pvt. Ltd. Co. is essentially a limited liability entity which is governed by the MCA, Companies Act of 2013, and the Companies Incorporation Rules of 2014 for the registration purposes. Pvt. Ltd. Co. is the most popular legal structure for businesses, thanks to its easy to incorporate mechanism.

Key factors to consider the Pvt. Ltd. Co. mode, include limited liability protection to shareholders; ability to raise the equity funds; separate legal entity status; and the continuous existence. All these and much more make Pvt. Ltd. Co. the most recommended form of business for numerous small, medium, and even large sized businesses.

To register a private limited company, you simply need to register all the directors (a minimum of two and a maximum of 15) with the MCA; register the name of the new company; and submit the company incorporation documents, including MoA and AoA. Also, minimum of two shareholders are required to register a private limited company.

Quick Guiding Notes:

  • A natural person can be a director as well as a shareholder, while a corporate legal entity can only be a shareholder.
  • Foreign nationals, foreign corporate entities, or NRIs can become Directors and / or Shareholders of a Company with Foreign Direct Investment, which makes it the preferred choice of entity for foreign promoters.
