Proprietorship to Pvt Ltd Company

Converting a Proprietorship to a Private Limited Company involves restructuring a sole proprietor's business into a separate legal entity with shareholders, offering limited liability and potential for growth.

    Overview About Service

    Entrepreneurs sometimes try to convert a sole proprietorship into a private limited company in order to accommodate the business's growth and take advantage of this business structure's benefits as it grows and expands. An agreement for the sale of the business is signed between the sole proprietorship and the newly created private limited company to start the conversion process. The private limited company must declare in its Memorandum of Association that it has absorbed the sole proprietorship. In addition, the sole proprietorship owner gains a seat on the new company's board of directors and voting rights.
