According to the Companies Act, a public limited company is a company that has limited liability and offers its shares to the general public, i.e. anyone can purchase and trade the shares of the company through a stock exchange. Registering a business as a Public Limited Company is a suitable option for companies that are medium or large scale or which require huge capital.

A person can purchase stocks of a Public Limited Company through stock market tradings or IPOs (Initial Public Offerings). Thus, all public limited companies can issue debentures, fixed deposits, bonds, etc to raise capital from the investors and general public. This makes public limited companies a very attractive option for new businesses which require funds. 

Advantages of public limited company registration

Registered businesses always get preference over unregistered businesses. Corporate customers, government agencies and investors prefer to deal with a registered company instead of a proprietorship. In a public limited company you get the benefit of limited liability along with the status of a separate legal entity. Registering a business as a Public Ltd. Company offers multiple other benefits as follows

  •    Brand Recognition: It helps you to build your company’s identity and trust in the customer’s mind.
  •    Ensure Payment Safety: A customer always feels safe, comfortable and assured while dealing with a registered entity.
  •    Limited Liability: Directors will not be personally liable for the default of the company or for the misconduct of other directors or members, their personal assets are always safe, irrespective of liabilities of business.
  •    Easy transfer: It is very simple and easy to transfer shares in a public limited company. In other types of business, the process of transferring shares or ownership is very cumbersome. In a public ltd. company, one has to just file the share transfer form and provide the share certificate to the buyer. The buyer can be any individual or company, Indian or foreign.
  •    Separate Legal Existence: A public ltd. company is a distinct legal entity from its shareholders and has a permanent existence because of this reason. It can hold property in its name, and also have a separate bank account, PAN, contracts, assets and liabilities in its name.
  •    Greater borrowing capacity: A public limited company has multiple options to raise funds- from institutional investors, banks and financial institutions, and the general public via equity funds, deposits, hedge funds, mutual funds, etc. If the company is listed on the stock exchange market, it can sell its shares to any person or entity who wants to invest.
  •    Better Growth and Expansion: Due to spreading of risk among a large number of shareholders and more capital, the public limited companies have a higher opportunity for growth and expansion by investing in new projects with the raised capital. The company can have unlimited shareholders and thus increase its amount of capital anytime easily.
  •    Enhances Credibility: Public Limited Companies need to meet with several legal and financial compliances which leads to more transparency in the structure. A public ltd. company must disclose its audited statement of accounts, hold annual general body meetings for all shareholders and inform the regulatory authority of any changes in its composition. These measures enhance the credibility of the company.
