What is a Private Limited Company in India?

A Private Limited Company sometimes written in short as Pvt Ltd. is one of the most popular types of business entity in India. 

It is formed by a minimum of 2 directors or 2 people. Private Limited Company registration is defined by stating the objectives in Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association. 

The business entity can be owned by a group of members called shareholders with a minimum requirement of 2 members or shareholders or subscribers. The maximum number of subscribers for a private limited company is 200. Once exceeding the limit, a private limited company ceases to exist and becomes a public limited company with more stringent compliance requirements.

Typically, Indian startups and businesses with the idea of raising investment and scaling up to reach the sky opt for a Private Limited Company as ownership of the company is defined by shareholders. 

Private Limited company gets recognised as a Company through its registration under Companies Act of 2013. The governing body is the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, widely known as MCA, please take a look of the website mca.gov.in 

Tax benefits from Private Limited Company

A Company in simple terms is like a body without life in it and the body is operated by a group of people. It is an instrument to remain perpetually existent through generations of people. But that being said, a company can take responsibilities and duties of a real person like legally binding contracts, possess properties in its own name, go under litigation etc.,

In short, a private limited company has the most trusted mode of procuring funds and attracting investment opportunity. 

Startup’s which are looking to raise capital and businesses Looking for better credibility and recognition, better compliance and governance, and the best taxation benefits choose private limited companies.

Limited Liability

The liability of a member as shareholder extends to the contribution to the share capital of the company up to the nominal value of the shares held and not paid by him. Members, even as a whole, are neither the owners of the company’s undertakings, nor liable for its debts.

Perpetual Existence
