Registrar of Companies is an office under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs which deals with the administration of the company.
You have to comply with the ROC filings. If you are running a One Person Company (OPC), then you have to comply with ROC filings like Annual return, financial statements, etc. Some annual filing is required for OPC which is mentioned below.
Deposition of the Annual Return filing of OPC is important because the law requires it. For filing an annual return, you have to submit the form no. MGT7. It must be filled by all OPC registered in India every year. Annual return consists of information and documents that include a compliance certificate, Registered Office Address, Register of Member, Shares and
Debentures details, Debt details and information about the Management of the Company. The annual return would also disclose the shareholding structure of the Company, changes in Directorship and details of transfers of securities.
EASY TO OBTAIN FUNDS: As OPC is a private company, it is simple to raise funds from venture capitalists, angel investors, incubators, and other sources.
LEGAL STATUS: The OPC is granted its own legal entity status by the member. The OPC is a separate legal body that protects the single person who has incorporated it.
LESS COMPLIANCES: The Companies Act of 2013 exempts the OPC from certain compliance requirements. The cash flow statement does not have to be prepared by the OPC.
EASY MANAGEMENT: Since a single person can establish and run the OPC, it becomes easy to manage its affairs.
PERPETUAL EXISTENCE: The OPC has the feature of perpetual succession even when there is only one member.
