Proprietorship Firm Registration

When a single person runs a business then such kind of business is called a proprietary business, and the owner of the business is called as proprietor. A proprietorship is the most common form of the business which is used in India. You can start and operate the business with minimum regulatory compliance. However, there is no full-fledged way available to register your proprietorship by Indian Government. Tax registration and other business registration’s is the right way to show the existence of your proprietary business. Following registrations can be used to show the existence of your proprietary Business

  • Professional Tax Registration.
  • GST Registration.
  • Shop and Establishment Registration.


The owner of a sole proprietorship business typically signs contracts in his or her own name, because the sole proprietorship business has no separate identity under the law. The sole proprietor owner will typically have customers write checks in the owner’s name, even if the business uses a fictitious name. Sole proprietor owners can, and often do, mix personal and business property and funds, something that partnerships, LLCs and corporations cannot do. Sole proprietorships often have their bank accounts in the name of the owner. Sole proprietors need not observe formalities such as voting and meetings associated with the more complex business forms. Sole proprietorships can bring lawsuits (and can be sued) using the name of the sole proprietor owner.

Easy to Start

Proprietorship needs minimal registration. Therefore, it is one of the easiest form of business entity to start with minimal formalities. However, after starting up a Proprietorship, it is relatively harder to open a bank account or obtain a payment gateway in the name of the business - since more registrations like VAT or Service Tax or GST Registration may be required.

Lower Taxes

Proprietorship with less than Rs. 3 lakhs of income is not required to pay any income tax, as proprietorships are taxed as the individual owing the business. However, unlike a company or LLP, a proprietorship cannot enjoy some of the tax deductions, which could potentially increase the tax liability.

No Restriction For Business Name

Since the name of a proprietorship is not registered, a proprietorship can choose to have any name - as long as it does not infringe on a registered trademark. However, since the name is not registered, any other person can also use the same business name unless trademark registration is obtained.

Easy Closure

The Proprietor and the proprietorship are one and the same for all legal purposes. Hence, there is no formality for winding up or closing a proprietorship. In most cases, to close a proprietorship, only the tax registrations obtained in the name of the proprietor must be cancelled.

Single Promoter

Proprietorship is the only type of business entity that can be registered and operated by one person. To register a one person company, a nominee Director is required and for all other types of entities like company or LLP or partnership firm, two or more promoters are required.
