Difference between One Person Company and Sole Proprietorship

One Person Company (OPC) offers several advantages over a Proprietorship Firm. Firstly, OPC has a separate legal identity, which means that it is a distinct legal entity from its owner, and therefore, the owner’s personal assets are protected in case of any legal liabilities incurred by the company. On the other hand, in a Proprietorship Firm, the owner is personally liable for all the debts and liabilities incurred by the business. Secondly, OPC has perpetual succession, which means that it continues to exist even in case of death or incapacitation of its owner. In a Proprietorship Firm, the business ends with the death of the proprietor. Thirdly, OPC has better access to funding and credit as compared to a Proprietorship Firm. This is because OPC has a separate legal identity, and therefore, can raise funds and obtain credit in its own name. Lastly, OPC has a more professional image and credibility as compared to a Proprietorship Firm, which can help in attracting customers and business partners. Overall, OPC offers several benefits over a Proprietorship Firm, making it an ideal business structure for single entrepreneurs.
