The liability of the shareholders of a Private Limited Company is Limited to their Shareholding. Thus, if the Private Limited Company makes a Loss, shareholders won’t have to pay the Loss beyond their Unpaid Share Capital.
Separate Legal Entity:
A Private Limited Company is separate and distinct from its Shareholders and Directors. It can buy and sell property, enter into contracts, sue or be sued upon in its own name. The death, insanity, incapacity or insolvency of its shareholders and/or directors does not affect the existence or business of the Company in any way.
Once formed, a Private Limited Company has a life-time existence until and unless it is liquidated.
Ease of raising Seed and Venture Capital:
If you’re planning on raising Seed or Venture Capital then only a Private Limited Company makes sense for you. Angels, Seed Funds or Venture Capitalists only fund a Private Limited Company.
A good way to reward and retain talent-ESOP’s:
The success of a business depends on the quality of the team or the talent behind it. It is very necessary for businesses to retain and attract talent. A Private Limited Company can issue ESOP’s or Sweat Equity Shares (as it is commonly referred to) to deserving employees in order to retain and reward them. This is not possible if business is registered as a Proprietorship, Partnership or LLP.

The Registrar of Companies (ROC) has introduced a new form for Formation of Companies. This form reduces the time taken for Incorporation of the Company from 15-20 working days to 7-10 working days. We use SPICe+ forms to incorporate your Company as this speeds up the process to form your Company.
The minimum authorised capital required to start a Company is Rs 1,00,000/- This means that the Company is authorised to issue shares upto Rs 1,00,000/- It is the authorised capital of the Company and not it’s paid-up Capital. In other words, the Shareholders do not have to deposit Rs 1,00,000/- into the Company’s Bank Account but have to deposit only that amount of which they purchase shares in the Company.

- Q : You mentioned that the Liability of the Shareholders and Directors is limited. What does this exactly mean ?
Limited Liability means that if your company incurs a loss, the Shareholder’s contribution to that loss will be limited to her/his Capital in the Company. For example, if your Company makes a Loss of Rs 1,00,000/- and the Company doesn’t have enough assets to pay off the loss. In that case, the Shareholders will have to contribute only their agreed capital and nothing above that. Suppose the agreed capital comes up to Rs 20,000/- then the difference of Rs 80,000/- will not have to be paid by the Shareholders. In all cases, the Directors of the Company will never contribute to the losses of the Company except in case any fraud or wrongful act committed by her/him
Employee Stock Option Plan (ESOP) or sweat equity shares as they are commonly known are Equity Shares of your Company which are issued to your Employees.

This number is issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). The procedure to issue this number is an online process and is a once in a lifetime procedure.
