Overview about Private Limited Company Registration:

A Private Limited Company (PLC) is a privately owned and operated small business that is one of the most popular ways to start a business in India. Private limited company registration in India is governed by the Companies Act of 2013.

While a private corporation must have at least two shareholders to be formed, the Companies Act of 2013 sets a higher limit of members is 200. When a private limited company experiences financial difficulties, its shareholders are not required to liquidate their personal assets, implying that they should have minimal culpability.

For online company registration, a minimum of two directors is required, with a maximum of 15 directors permitted. The nominated director must be at least 18 years old. In India, a foreign national can be a director of a private limited business.

There is no minimum paid-up capital requirement for forming a private limited company. Every private limited corporation must end its name with “”

A private limited firm exists indefinitely. Even if one of its members dies or goes bankrupt, a private limited business continues to exist.

A private limited corporation has no public relationships and is not allowed to ask for any collateral from the public or public sectors. People are not allowed to transfer shares in a private limited business, which protects private limited companies from taking over by large corporations.
