Separate Legal Entity

A company is a legal entity and a juristic person established under the Act. Therefore a company type of organization has wide legal ability and can own property and also sustain financial debts. The members (Shareholders/Directors) of a company have no liability to the creditors of a company for such debts.

Borrowing Capacity

A company enjoys better avenues for borrowing of funds. It can issue debentures, secured as well as unsecured and can also accept deposits from the public, etc. Even banking and financial institutions prefer to render large financial assistance to a company rather than partnership firms or proprietary concerns.

Easy Transferability

Shares of a company limited by shares are transferable by a shareholder to any other person. Filing and signing a share transfer form and handing over the buyer of the shares along with share certificate can easily transfer shares.

Limited Liability

Limited Liability means the status of being legally responsible only to a limited amount for debts of a company. Unlike proprietorships and partnerships, in a limited liability company the liability of the members in respect of the company's debts is limited.
