The first Step is to obtain the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) of the proposed Director which required the following documents:

  • Address Proof
  • Aadhaar card
  • PAN Card
  • Photo
  • Email id
  • Phone Number

What type of OPC can be formed?

As per section 3(1) and (2), OPC can only be incorporated as a private limited company. Such a company may either be:

  • A company limited by shares; or
  • A company limited by guarantee; or
  • An unlimited company

No it is not possible. The rule is applicable for Nominee in OPC also.

It depends on the documents you provide to registrar of companies it can be done in 15 days.

Does audit is mandatory in OPC?

The law requires adopting accounts and there is no exception provided specifically to OPC to place accounts for adoption without audit.

If the OPC paid up capital exceed rupees 50 Lakhs and annual turnover exceed rupees 2 Crores than the OPC can convert in Public or Private Limited Company.

No it is not possible according to norms, even he is a nominee the same rules will be applicable

Apply for DIN

Once the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) is made, the next step is to apply for the Director Identification Number (DIN) of the proposed Director in SPICe Form along with the name and the address proof of the director. Form DIR-3 is the option only available for existing companies. It means with effect from January 2018, the applicant need not file Form DIR-3 separately. Now DIN can be applied within SPICe form for up to three directors.

Name Approval Application

The next step while incorporating an OPC is to decide on the name of the Company. The name of the Company will be in the form of “ABC (OPC) Private Limited”.

There are 2 options available for getting name approved by making application in Form SPICe 32 or by using RUN Web service of MCA by giving only 1 preferred name along with the significance of keeping that name. However, with effect from March 23, 2018, Ministry has decided to permit two proposed Names and one re-submission (RSUB) while reserving Unique Names (RUN Service) for the Companies.

Once the name is approved by the MCA we move on to the next step.

Documents Required

  • The Memorandum of Association (MOA) which are the objects to be followed by the Company or stating the business for which the company is going to be incorporated.
  • The Articles of the Association (AOA) which lays down the by-laws on which the company will operate.

  • Proof of the registered office of the proposed Company along with the proof of ownership and a NOC from the owner.
