Introduction of Partnership Firm Registration

A partnership is a form of business where two or more people share ownership, as well as the responsibility for managing the company and the income or losses the business generates. The Partnership firms are easy to form and have  less legal compliances. The partnership firms can be  registered or unregistered and it is regulated under Indian Partnership Act, 1932. The Partnership Deed is the most essential document which decides the overall working and dissolution process. It is very important to draft the deed with full expertise so that conflicts do not arise between the partners in future.

The Act does not bind the partners to get the firm registered but comes with some drawbacks for the partners such as they cannot file or institute any cases against the partners and third parties. Therefore it is recommended to get the partnership firms registered. The State Department deals with the registration process and every state has different platforms and guidelines to submit the documents.
