Partnership Firm Registration for Business
Partnership Firm Registration for Business
What is Partnership Firm Registration for Business?
Why consider a Partnership firm?
Starting a Partnership Firm is one of the easiest options to register an entity with more members. Unlike, LLP or Company there are very few restrictions in the Partnership Entity for the entry or exit of members. Also, there is no obligation on the Partnership firm so formed for the contract entered into as it is the personal liability of the members to take care of the projects or proposals a partnership has contracted.
A partnership as an entity cannot be sued while its members can be sued by third parties compared to other business forms which can directly as separate entities be used by third parties. A Partnership is broken if a member opts out of the partnership agreement and a new agreement can be formed between new partners, but such flexibility is not provided in any other business form.
Is it beneficial to have Partnership Registration with members?
There is an unending number of reasons or thoughts by which a successful partnership can come to end. Without proper drafting of the charter document or registration of the partnership, there can’t be any legal suit filed against the other members of the partnership or the partnership firm. Also, with Partnership Registration partners are clear about their duties and rights in the partnership for which they can legally object in case of any argument.
