What is a Private Limited Company?

Private Limited Company in India is the most popular business structure due to stability and growth opportunities served by this corporate structure. It is an organisation registered for defined business objects owned by a close group of members not being more than 200 at a time. The shareholders of the company are said to be the owners, whereas the personnel managing day-to-day operations are called as directors. 

A registered company has its separate legal existence apart from its shareholders and directors. Therefore, the personal assets of the shareholders are secured and treated separately from the assets and liabilities of the company. Owing to the separate existence of company, any change in shareholders or management does not affect the survival of the company.  

The registration and operations of the companies are governed by Indian Companies Act, 2013 and Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) is appointed as the regulatory body. The centralised and transparent registration process makes this corporate structure highly credible from other entities. The Government of India is consistently introducing such provisions that make the registration process easy and simpler for every start-up especially small scale. Therefore, private limited company registration in India is an easy task when properly assisted by professionals.
