One Person Company Registration

What is one person company?

In Pakistan, the one-person company is also known as SMC (single-member company) This company came to existence in 2010. Additionally, it is a type of private limited. But, the difference is that only one member is required to incorporate the company.

Moreover, the SMC is limited by shares. So, the SMC can not sell or trade the shares with the public in the stock market.

Furthermore, the member who is incorporating the company would have to appoint a nominee. The nominee can be anyone from their blood relatives. Plus, the nominee will replace the sole director of the company in case they are disabled. Consequently, the director should specify the nominee in the MOA & AOA of the corporation.
