Business Objective and Proposed Name

Why to choose Public Limited Company Registration in India?

  • Raise Funds Easily

    The requirements for forming a public company are sufficiently severe to make this system trustworthy for those seeking to fundraise or borrow money. Proprietorships, partnership firms, and Limited Liability Partnerships cannot issue shares, and are thereby unable to attract equity funding.

  • Limited Liability Protection

    Each member or shareholder's responsibility is restricted in a private limited Company. As a result, even in the event of a loss, its shareholders are not obliged to sell their own assets to make a payment. The stockholders' own, individual assets are not under risk.

  • Separate Legal Entity

    A public limited company continues to exist in the eyes of the law even if all of the members die or becomes insolvent or bankrupt. Unless it is dissolved by resolution, the company's life will be eternal, unaffected by the lives of its shareholders or members.

  • Separation of Ownership and Management

    A Public Limited Company separates its ownership and management. It helps both company and management to work with full potential. Responsibilities are assigned to run the company with the rule of voting.

  • Easy transfer of shares

    Shares represent the ownership of a company. Share of the Public company can easily be transferred without consent of the company.

  • Listing on Stock Exchange

    Public companies can be listed on stock exchange and thereby raise funds from the public at large by way of initial public offer or further public offer.

  • Widening the shareholder base and spreading risk

    This may allow early investors in the company to sell some of their own shares at a profit while still retaining a substantial stake in the company.
