Methods to close one person company

There are typically two ways to close OPC 1) Striking Off and 2) Winding Up

  • Striking Off: Another procedure to close an OPC is by getting the company through a fast track exit scheme. This involves not conducting any business operations for one year and declaring a company defunct. But make sure that the company doesn’t have any assets or liabilities.
  • Winding Up: This process requires obtaining consent from the creditors, participants, and management board. After receiving the consent, the OPC can legally register a request online to close the organization. But know that winding up is a long process and may require elaborate documentation like disclosing company assets and liabilities.
  • Account statements detailing the assets and liabilities of the Company properly audited by a CA
  • An affidavit (STK 4) provided by sole director
  • Resolution signed by a solitary member

FAQ

LET'S CLEAR ALL THE DOUBTS!

A closure of a one person company means ceasing the operations of a business identity run by a sole owner (can also be a director) such as no sales & purchase, no customer dealing, no online or offline activity in any way that would add to the business’s income. Additionally, anyone looking to close an OPC online must fulfill a few requirements that we already discussed in the above sections.

Well, the procedure (as already mentioned) can be a lengthy one, consuming up to 15 days to 3 months. However, hiring professionals to do the job for you will surely shorten the process by one to two weeks. The quickness of OPC Closure also depends on how well your documents to be submitted to MCA are prepared in advance.

Once the applicant has fulfilled requirements like document submission and obtaining an NOC, the ROC will usually publish a list of companies that have been officially removed from government records. Therefore, the company can be considered closed from the date of the publication of the list in the official Gazette.

It is mandatory to inform the Registrar of Companies about the closure of OPC in order to update the MCA data and relieve the company of any legal complications that may follow due to unawareness.

Well, it is only logical to dissolve the business entity if it is not running as it will relieve you of all the yearly compliance costs that you otherwise need to fulfill, such as ROC Returns, Income tax filings saving you from high-penalties and prosecutions in case of non-fulfillment of the mentioned.

Yes. The OPC must submit a consent letter along with the one-person company closure online application form that clearly declares that the board members have given their approval.
