Advantages Of A Private Limited Company

Separate Legal Entity

 

A Private Limited Company is a legal entity and a juristic individual established under the Companies Act. Thus, a company has a range of legal capacities, such as opening of a bank account, hiring of employees, taking on equity, obtaining licenses and much more. The members (Shareholders/Directors) of an enterprise have no personal liability towards the creditors of the enterprise for company's debts.

Uninterrupted Existence

A Private limited company has an advantage of perpetual succession. It means that it has an uninterrupted existence until it is legally dissolved. A company is a distinct legal entity and is unaffected by the departure or the death of any of its Directors or shareholders. It continues to exist regardless of any changes in the ownership.

Easy Transferability

The ownership of a business can easily be transferred to a company by transferring shares. The signing, transfer and filing of the share transfer form along with the share certificates are sufficient documents for transferring the ownership of a company. In a private limited company, the consent of other shareholders may be required for the transfer of shares.

Borrowing Capacity

Private limited company has the ability to raise funds in India. With the RBI permission, a company can issue equity shares, preference shares, debentures and accept deposits too. Banks and financial institutions are more willing to provide funds to a company rather than partnership firms or proprietary firms.

Therefore, it needs to be in relation of the nature of the business. It must be relevant and attractive. Here are some of the following aspects which we should keep in mind while naming the business -​

  • The name of the company should be concise and short. People should be able to pronounce it easily and recollect the name as early as they read it or hear it.

  •  It needs to be the face of the company.

  • The company name should be unique. It should not be identical or similar to an already existing business or a trademark.

  •  It is best to avoid the name of a person (be the owner or a shareholder) to be used in the company’s name. This avoids the need to rename the company in the event of his or her exit.
