Why Private Limited Company?

The directors of the private limited company are not personally liable for any loss/damage to the creditors or other stakeholders.

After being registered as a private limited company, the same is considered to be a juristic person, i.e. both the directors and the company are two different distinct entities. Even if the ownership continues to transfer multiple times, the existence of the company will still be there.

As the private limited company is considered to be a separate legal entity; the same can easily raise equity funds. Both the private equity funds and the venture capitalists prefer to invest in the private limited company more than any other entity type. This benefit also makes it easier for the company to hire top talent that would otherwise not be possible by merely paying a salary.

Apart from raising the equity funds, the private limited company holds power to issue both equity and preference shares along with debentures. The company can also accept deposits with RBI’s permission.

The ownership of the private limited company is easily transferable. But the transfer of ownership won’t affect the existence of the company by any means. As under the eyes of the law, the private limited company is a separate legal entity; it will enjoy an “uninterrupted existence” irrespective of the number of ownership transfers.

In its capacity as an artificial person, the private limited company can enjoy ownership of properties on its name. Property may include a building, machines, any tangible and intangible assets, land, and much more. Till the time, the company is a going concern; no shareholder can claim its right on any of the property possessed by the private limited company.
