Transitioning from a sole proprietorship to a private limited company (PLC) can be a strategic move for businesses seeking growth and increased legal protection. Understanding the process outlined by the Companies Act 2013 is crucial for a smooth and compliant conversion.

Any established sole proprietorship operating legally in India is eligible for conversion to a PLC. However, certain criteria must be met, such as:

● Minimum of two directors (one can be the proprietor)
● Share capital of at least INR 1 lakh
● Registered office within India

Features of Conversion:

Converting to a PLC offers several benefits, including:

● Limited Liability: Personal assets of the proprietor are shielded from business debts and liabilities.

● Separate Legal Entity: The PLC exists as a distinct entity from its shareholders, providing greater stability and continuity.

● Fund Raising: Access to new funding avenues like venture capital or angel investors becomes easier.

● Professional Image: A PLC projects a more professional image, enhancing stakeholder trust and credibility.

Detailed Step-wise Procedure:

1. Slump Sale Agreement: Formulate a detailed agreement outlining the transfer of assets and liabilities from the proprietorship to the PLC.

2. Company Formation: Incorporate the PLC with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) by:
○ Obtaining DINs and DSCs for directors.
○ Filing Form-1 for name availability.
○ Drafting MOA and AOA.
○ Applying for incorporation with MCA.

3. Transfer of Assets and Liabilities: Execute the slump sale agreement to formally transfer assets and liabilities.

4. Post-Conversion Activities:
○ Obtain PAN and TAN for the PLC.
○ Update all licenses and registrations.
○ Open a bank account in the PLC’s name.
○ Maintain separate accounting records.

List of Documents Required:

● Identity and address proof of directors (PAN, Aadhaar, Voter ID)
● Passport-sized photographs of directors
● Proof of registered office address (ownership/rental agreement, NOC)
● Business bank statements and financial records
● Slump sale agreement
● MOA and AOA
