Introduction To Partnership Firm

Partnership firm is a form of business, in which, two or more individuals pool in their resources, and agree to operate as business in accordance with their decided terms. In other words, “Partnership is the relation between persons who have agreed to share the profits of a business carried on by all or any of them acting for all”. The terms and conditions on which, the partners agree to operate their business, is known as partnership agreement. Though a partnership agreement may be written or oral, it is always better to have it in writing. A written agreement is known as “Partnership deed” and is governed by Partnership Act, 1932.

The Partnership Firm registration is best suitable for small scale of operations, requiring minimum funds and less compliances. Also, in case of risk of failure, business can be commenced in the form of a Partnership Firm, which can later be converted into any other form of business, to bring in stability. The persons who own the partnership business are individually called ‘partners’ and collectively called ‘firm’ or ‘partnership firm’.

Types of Partnership Firm in India

Unregistered Partnership Firm:

In case of an Unregistered Partnership Firm, the partners carry on the business in the manner, as stated and provided in their partnership agreement.

Registered Partnership Firm

In case, partners of the proposed firm seek to get their firm registered, they need to get it done with the Registrar of Firm (RoF) having jurisdiction over the place of business of the firm.

Is Registration of Partnership Firm Mandatory?

The base of a partnership firm is the mutual consent of all the partners. Thus, the existence of the partnership firm does not need registration. Hence, in India, it is not mandatory to get a partnership firm registered. Though non-registration of partnership firm does not invalidate the transactions of the firm, however, it is always advisable to get it registered, in order to avail the following privileges:

  • Privilege to the Firm: Only a registered firm has the right, to sue third parties in case of any default made by them. Further, it is easy for a registered firm to expand its business or convert its business into any other form of business.
  • Privilege to Creditors: A creditor is a person, to whom the partnership firm owes money. A registered firm guarantees assurance to the creditors regarding their right to recover money. All partners whose names are given in the registration shall personally be held responsible to the outsiders.
  • Privilege to Partners: The partners can approach a court of law in case of their internal disputes, or in case of dispute with the outsiders.
  • Privilege to incoming and outgoing Partners: Both, the new and the outgoing partners (in case of death or retirement) have a right in the firm. However, at times, they need to fight for their rights. Their fight gets a legal aid, only when the firm is registered.
