Concepts behind One Person Company

One share holder

One Person Company is defined in the Companies Act as a Company which has only one member. A single shareholder holds 100 percent shareholding. Only a natural person who is a resident of India and also a citizen of India can form a one person company. It means that other legal entities like companies or societies or other corporate entities cannot form a one person company. Further it also means that Non resident Indians or Foreign citizens cannot form a one person company.

One Director

The other important point is that a One Person Company may have only one director but at the same time there is no bar on more number of directors. However, as per the Act, the total number of directors shall not be more than 15


One Person Company has to nominate a Nominee with his written consent who, in the event of death or inability to contract of the owner of the One Person Company, shall come forward and take over the reins of the one person company.


It is assumed that the rates of taxation applicable for a private limited company shall apply to a One Person Company.
