A private limited company, or LTD, is a type of privately held small business entity. This type of business entity limits owner liability to their shares, limits the number of shareholders to 50, and restricts shareholders from publicly trading shares.
Private Limited Company:
Let's look at some of the advantages of having a private limited company:
During the recent recession, which lasted from December 2007 - June 2009, many businesses experienced financial problems and permanently closed. One advantage of owning a private limited company is that the financial liability of shareholders is limited to their shares. Therefore, if a private limited company was in financial trouble and had to close, shareholders would not risk losing their personal assets. Although, perpetrating a fraud related to the private limited company would negate an owner's limited liability protection.
Restricted Trade of Shares
The restriction placed on the sale or transfer of shares may be considered an advantage or disadvantage, depending on your outlook. It is an advantage to some shareholders because shareholders who want to sell shares cannot sell them to outside buyers. Shareholders must also agree to the sale or transfer of shares; therefore, the risk of hostile takeovers is low. The restriction placed on the sale of shares is a disadvantage because shareholders have limited options for liquidating shares.
Another advantage of a private limited company is its continued existence, even after the owner dies or leaves the business. Private limited companies are incorporated. When a business incorporates, it becomes an independent legal entity, meaning it is able to sue or own assets separate from the company owner. A private limited company differs from a sole proprietorship in that the latter is owned by a single individual who is personally responsible for the company's business debts and essential to its continued existence.
Private limited companies also enjoy tax advantages. For example, their corporate taxes may be lower than those paid by other types of businesses. Financial statements for private limited companies must be filed no later than nine months after the fiscal year ends. The first accounting period begins the same day that the business is incorporated.
IDENTITY AND ADDRESS PROOF
Identity and the address proof will be needed for all the directors and the shareholders of the company to be incorporated. In case of an Indian national, PAN card is mandatory. For the foreign nationals, apostilled or notarised copy of the passport has to be submitted mandatorily. All documents submitted should be valid. The residence proof documents like the bank statement or the electricity bill must be less than 2 months old.
REGISTERED OFFICE PROOF
All companies should have a registered office in India. To prove admittance to the registered office, a recent copy of electricity bill or the property tax receipt or water bill must be submitted. Along with the rental agreement, utility bill or the sale deed and a letter from the landlord with her/ his consent to use the office as a registered office of the company should be submitted.
