One Person Company is an artificial distint Entity so it is separated by law from its owner. In case of Sole Proprietorship, business comes to wound up in case of death of the owner unlike of the OPC .


The liability of the shareholder is limited upto unpaid subscription money in his name and the personal Asset does not get affected by it.


OPC will convert unorganized sector into organized in the form of private limited company. Sole proprietors might enter in to the corporate sector.


Death and insolvency of any of the member does not affect the continuity of the company. Thus the life of its members does not affect the company. Person can become member or even can leave the organization. Transfer of share can not affect the company.


As the Shareholder and Director may be the same person the sole control lies with the owner although the owner may appoint Maximum Upton director still the sole control lies to the shareholder.


As there is no requirement to conduct AGM and the Number of Board Meeting is also comparatively less as only 2 meeting is required in whole year so it is easiest form of Corporate Entity.
