Closure of OPC

Closure of OPC

The Process of closing a One Person Company (OPC) is known as Strike off or company closure. Company closure is done under newly notified rules Companies (Removal of Names of Companies) Rules, 2016 which governed by section 248 of Companies Act, 2013. If you are not running your company, we recommend you to close your One Person Company.

Filing a proper application for winding up or closing a one person company (OPC), and following the prescribed procedure for closure, are absolutely necessary for closing the OPC legally and officially. Though inoperative, an OPC is compulsorily required to file all regulatory compliances and regular returns punctually, unless it has filed the closure documents with the concerned ROC.

It is because, to make the OPC free from its legal and regulatory compliances and thus declare that closed, there is mandatory need of updating the ROC or MCA database related with the closing OPC. A One Person Company (OPC) may be wound up either voluntarily or by the order of the Tribunal. Also, an OPC which has been inoperative regularly for past one year, counted from the date of its incorporation, may apply for closure under the Fast Track Exit (FTE) scheme of the MCA.
