Advantages of private limited company

Separate legal entity

A private limited company has its own legal identity. So third parties contract with the ‘company’ and not the individual directors and shareholders. It means there is a continuity of business even if any of the shareholders die

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. This means any loss or debts which is purely of business nature will not impact, personal savings or wealth of an entrepreneur.

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.

Tax benefit

Private limited companies enjoy tax advantages in addition to limited liability. These companies pay corporation tax on their taxable profits and tend to be exempt from higher personal income tax rates. Forming a company instead of continuing as a sole trader or sole proprietor opens the door to more tax-deductible costs and allowances redeemable against profit.
