Starting a Partnership Firm
A General Partnership is a business structure in which two or more individuals manage and operate a business in accordance with the terms and objectives set out in the Partnership Deed. This structure is thought to have lost its relevance since the introduction of the Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) because its partners have unlimited liability, which means they are personally liable for the debts of the business. However, low costs, ease of setting up and minimal compliance requirement make it a sensible option for some, such as home businesses that are unlikely to take on any debt. Registration is optional for General Partnerships.
Minimal Compliance
General Partnerships do not need to appoint an auditor or, if unregistered, even file annual accounts with the registrar. Annual compliances are also fewer as compared to an LLP. General Partnerships do need to file Income Taxes and, depending on turnover, service and sales tax.
Easy to Start
It can be started with just an unregistered Partnership Deed in 2 to 4 days; registration is, however, a wise choice. It would enable you to file suits in court against another firm or partners in the firm for the enforcement of rights arising from a contract or right given by the Partnership Act.
Relatively Inexpensive
A General Partnership is cheaper to start than an LLP and even over the long-term, thanks to the minimal compliance requirements, is inexpensive. You would not need to hire an auditor, for example. This is why, despite its severe shortcoming (unlimited liability), home businesses may opt for it.
The General Partnership process is straightforward and, if you're prompt with your submissions, can be completed in five days. This is, however, dependent on a few things, such as whether or not you want your business registered and availability of stamp paper.

We will collect all the information regarding your business and its partners. The information will be used by our lawyers to draft a partnership deed covering the various aspects of the business on stamp paper (charged as per actuals).

Time to Complete: 1 working day

Starting a Sole Proprietorship

A sole proprietorship is a business that is owned and managed by a single person. You could have one up and running within 10 days, which makes it very popular among the unorganised sector, particularly small traders and merchants. There is no such thing as registration; proprietorships are recognised by other registrations, such as a service or sales tax registration. As you would imagine with a business that's so easy to set up, though, its shortcomings are severe: the liability of the proprietor is unlimited and it does not have a continuous existence. For these reasons, it should only be considered by small merchants and traders.
Minimal Compliance
Sole Proprietorships are only recognised via their government and tax registrations, so the extent of their compliance is limited to the annual filing of their service, professional or sales taxes.
Easy to Start
A sole proprietorship could take as few as seven days if all you need is a Service Tax Registration, but this would stretch to 30 days if you need Sales Tax Registration. Either way, the process is uncomplicated. PAN card and identity and address proofs are usually enough to get this done.
Relatively Inexpensive
A Sole Proprietorship is inexpensive as compared to a One Person Company and, thanks to the minimal compliance requirements, is inexpensive even over the long-term. You would not need to hire an auditor, for example. This is why, despite its severe shortcoming (unlimited liability), small merchants and traders opt for it.
Proprietorship is recognised through one or more government registrations. Our representatives will advise you about the ones you will need based on the business you're in, and inform you of the documents you would need to provide in each case. Here is a snapshot of the process:
1. Select Registration
We will help you decide what registration you need, whether service tax, sales tax, import/export code, MSME registration or Shops and Establishments registration.
Time to Complete: Less than a day
2. Begin Procedure
Once you've decided what you want, we'll ask you for the documents we need to get started. In most cases, you would first need to provide address and identity proof as well as a scanned copy of a passport-sized photograph. Some registrations (Sales Tax, for example) involve an inspection by the concerned government agency. We will assist you throughout the process until you receive the required registration.
Time to Complete: Depends on selected service
3. Get a TAN
A proprietor would need a Tax Account Number (TAN) if he is going to pay salaries and rent. We will make the application online ourselves, but you will need to courier hard copies of the required documents yourself to the government office. You will receive the TAN at the registered address within 7 working days.
Time to Complete: 7 working days
