Advantages of Public Limited Company Registration

Separate Legal entity

A public limited company is considered to be a separate legal entity from the shareholders. The public limited company has a perpetual existence and can have its PAN, bank account, approvals, contracts, licenses, assets, and liabilities.

Easy transferability of shares

It is one of the biggest advantages of a Public Limited Company, the shares can be easily transferred by a shareholder to other legal entities- be it an individual or an organization in India or abroad. The director of the company can also be changed for ensuring the business perpetuity.

Multiple avenues of funding

A public limited company raises funds from individuals as well as from financial institutions. The funds may be also raised in equity shareholding, preference shareholding, or debentures.

Limited Liability

The shareholders of a Public Limited Company are given limited liability protection. In a situation of unexpected liability, the same would be limited only to the company and the not affect the shareholders in any way.

Growth opportunities

As the organization has a vast capital base the development openings are likewise huge, particularly in the event of an open constrained organization.


The organization is controlled by the Board of Directors. This Board of Directors is elected by the investors.

Exit Strategy

Going public can enhance the options for the founders to exit the business at some point in the future if they wish to do so. Both higher transferability of shares and the increased visibility of the business and its performance may increase the chances of bid interest from potential suitors.

Prestigious profile and confidence

Whether deserved or not, having ‘Public Limited’ at the end of a company name can add standing and prestige. There is a sense of status about a public limited company that its private company counterpart just doesn’t quite have, which can affect how the business is viewed. While often more imagined than real, this perception of being more established, larger, or more powerful can affect the behavior of customers, suppliers, and employees.

More people are likely to be aware of the company if it is public, particularly if it’s listed on a stock exchange. In that case, it’s more likely to receive attention from the media and investment professionals. This is effectively free publicity, meaning more people will recognize the company and its products or services. Better brand recognition can lead to more sales. It may also make you more visible to valuable potential business partners.

Credibility and confidence are reinforced by:

  • Operating under a stricter legal regime than private companies in many areas
  • Higher share capital requirements
  • Greater transparency (for example, in the required form of accounts)
  • For listed companies, the indirect endorsement of having their shares listed on a recognized exchange
  • Again, these factors can affect the behavior of (potential) shareholders, customers, and business partners.
