About Partnership Firm

APartnership Firm is a popular form of business constitution for businesses that are owned, managed and controlled by partners for profit. Partnership firms are relatively easy to start and is prevalent amongst small and medium sized businesses in the unorganized sectors. With the introduction of Limited Liability Partnerships in India, Partnership Firms are fast losing their prevalence due to the added advantages offered by a Limited Liability Partnership.
There are two types of Partnership firms, registered and un-registered Partnership firm. It is not compulsory to register a Partnership firm; however, it is advisable to register a Partnership firm due to the added advantages. Partnership firms are created by drafting a Partnership deed amongst the Partners.


A Partnership is easy to form as no burdensome legal formalities are involved. Its registration is also not essential. However, if the firm is not registered, it will be deprived of certain legal benefits. The Registrar of Firms is responsible for registering partnership firms.

Any name can be chosen for a Partnership firm as long as it does not infringe on any registered trademark. However, since the name is not registered, any other person can also use the same business name unless trademark registration is obtained for the said name.

A Partnership firm is not required to file its annual accounts with the Registrar each year unlike a Limited Liability Partnership or a Company who are required to file their annual accounts with Registrar of Companies each year.

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.

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.
