A private limited company must have a minimum of two Directors and can have upto a maximum of fifteen Directors. The Director needs to be over 18 years of age and must be a natural person, there are no limitations in terms of citizenship or residency. Therefore, foreign nationals can be directors in a Indian Private Limited Company. Minimum of one lakh authorised capital is required to form a private limited company in India. A foreign Company can hold shares of a Private Limited Company in India subject to Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Guidelines.

A private limited company has all the advantages of partnership namely flexibility, greater capital combination of different and diversified abilities, etc., and at the same time it has advantages of limited liability, greater stability and legal entity. In this sense, a private limited company stands between partnership and widely owned public company. Once a Company is incorporated, it will be active and in-existence as long as the annual compliances are met with regularly.

Why to Register as Private Limited Company

Separate Legal Entity

Private Limited Company is a legal entity and a juristic person established under the Companies Act. Hence, a company has a range of legal capacities including opening of a bank account, hiring of employees, taking on equity or obtaining licenses and more as an independent corporate entity. The members (Shareholders/Directors) of a company have no personal liability to the creditors of a company for company's debts.

Uninterrupt Existence

Private Limited Company has 'perpetual succession', meaning uninterrupted existence until it is legally dissolved. A company being a separate legal person, is unaffected by the death or other departure of any member and continues to be in existence irrespective of the changes in ownership.

Easy Transferability

Ownership of a business can be easily transferred in a company by transferring shares. The signing, filing and transfer of share transfer form and share certificates is sufficient to transfer ownership of a company. In a private limited company, the consent of other shareholders may be required to effect share transfers.

Borrowing Capacity

Private Limited Companies can raise equity funds in India. Companies can also issue equity shares, preference shares, debentures and accept deposits with RBI permission. Banks and Financial Institutions prefer to provide funding to a company rather than partnership firms or proprietary concerns.

Owning Property

Private Limited Company being an artificial person, can acquire, own, enjoy and alienate, property in its name. The property owned by a company could be machinery, building, intangible assets, land, residential property, factory, etc., No shareholder can make a claim upon the property of the company - as long as the company is a going concern.

Limited Liability

Limited Liability means the status of being legally responsible only to a limited amount for debts of a company. Unlike proprietorships and partnerships, in a LLP the liability of the members in respect of the company's debts is limited.
