Being the Sole Proprietor enjoys the benefit of the most convenient business structure. Although, it has its own limitations.

It is the popular option for the start-ups and new businesses which are having high growth potential as well as looking for the funding in their business. Starting with the Private Limited Company, it can have members ranging from 2-200 members and separate legal existence apart from their promoters as well as Directors.
