What is Partnership Firm Registration?

For a while, let’s skip Partnership Firm Registration and firstly understand what Partnership Firm is. Partnership Firm is a kind of business structure which is pretty simple to form and can be started with minimum of two people.

If we talk about the compliances pertaining to the partnership firm, they are quite less as compared to other corporate entities. In a partnership firm, two or more people come together to work for their mutual benefits. These people are known as partners.

Partnership Firm Registration isn’t mandatory to run a Partnership firm. However, experts always advise applicants to obtain registration before they start the business. The registration will help them with several legal benefits which a partnership firm cannot avail without registration.

Benefits of Partnership Firm Registration in India

There are several reasons why Partnership Firm Registration could be beneficial for you. They are described below:

  • Minimum two persons

To form a partnership firm, minimum two persons are required. However, it completely depends on the applicant how many partners he/she is willing to work with. One can increase the number of partners but two persons are sufficient to start a Partnership firm in India.

  • Shared responsibilities and duties

Every partner in the firm has certain specified duties. The duties and responsibilities of the partners are shared.

  • Easy formation

Because of less documentation and minimum legal formalities, registration of partnership firm as well as its formation is pretty easy.

  • No annual returns

Unlike other business entities such as Private Limited, Public Limited and One Company Limited Companies where you have to file annual returns, in Partnership Firms, there is no need to file annual returns.

  • Less compliances and regulations

When compared to companies and LLP, the compliances and regulations in the case of a partnership firm are considerably lesser.

  • Better management

It is easier to manage the operations of partnership firms as all the partners take interest in everyday business affairs because of profit, control, and ownership.

What could be the consequences if you don’t register the Partnership Firm?

Indian Partnership Act, 1932 gives several rights to the partners of the company. However, if you don’t register your partnership firm under Indian Partnership Act, then you and other partners can’t enforce any rights under the Act. Furthermore, in the case of disputes with the third party, the partnership firm can’t claim for setoff. However, the third party has the power to sue the firm.

Things to consider while choosing the name of the Partnership Firm

Before you go for partnership firm registration in India, you need to select a name. For the same, you are required to keep the following things into consideration:

  • The name of the firm should be unique and must not be a match of any existing firm involved in the similar or same business class.
  • There shouldn’t be any word like empire, crown, emperor, or any such words in the name of the firm which requires approval from the government.
