Advantages of a Private Limited Company
Separate Legal Entity
A Private Limited Company is a legal entity and a juristic individual established under the Companies Act. Thus, a company has a range of legal capacities, such as opening of a bank account, hiring of employees, taking on equity, obtaining licenses and much more. The members (Shareholders/Directors) of an enterprise have no personal liability towards the creditors of the enterprise for company's debts.
A Private limited company has an advantage of perpetual succession. It means that it has an uninterrupted existence until it is legally dissolved. A company is a distinct legal entity and is unaffected by the departure or the death of any of its Directors or shareholders. It continues to exist regardless of any changes in the ownership.
The ownership of a business can easily be transferred to a company by transferring shares. The signing, transfer and filing of the share transfer form along with the share certificates are sufficient documents for transferring the ownership of a company. In a private limited company, the consent of other shareholders may be required for the transfer of shares.
Private limited company has the ability to raise funds in India. With the RBI permission, a company can issue equity shares, preference shares, debentures and accept deposits too. Banks and financial institutions are more willing to provide funds to a company rather than partnership firms or proprietary firms.
A private limited company is an artificial person who can acquire, own and also isolate property in its name. The property owned could be machinery, building, factory, residential property, land, intangible assets etc. No shareholder can claim the property of a company as long as the business is a going concern.

Pvt Ltd Company Registration FAQs
The Registrar of Companies (ROC) expects that India should follow few naming guidelines. The more closely the guidelines are followed, the greater the chances of your name approval. Few guidelines for name approval are as follows -
Blacklist: Generic names, adjectives and abbreviations will be rejected. For ex- Abbreviations like ABP or CNN will be rejected. The terms like bank, exchange, stock exchange will also be rejected unless it is authorized by SEBI or RBI.
No Common Trademark: Trademark should not be common. The registered trademark should not be similar to any other trademark displayed on the Intellectual property website of India. If found similar, you will get the name approval only when you get an NOC Objection Certificate (NOC) from its owner - authorizing you to make use of it.
Descriptive Component: The company name should convey the details about your business you are doing or you want to do. For ex - In Eli Research Private Limited, the word' Research' conveys that the company is into a research business. If your business is different, you cannot use the word “Research” in your business name as it will surely get rejected.
- If the company have no security interest in its assets at the time of application.
- When there are no partners of the LLP and the shareholders of the company are the only partners.
