While registration of a proprietorship firm isn’t governed by a specific act and there is no single way in which a proprietorship can be registered.

The 3 most popular ways you can register a sole proprietorship in India are

1. GST registration:  You need GST registration if your annual turnover is expected to cross 20 lakhs/40lakhs. Also, if you intend to supply in other states, you should take GST registration irrespective of turnover.

Private limited company registration is governed by the Companies Act, 2013 and the Companies Incorporation Rules, 2014. To register a private limited company, a minimum of two shareholders and two directors are required. A natural person can be both a director and shareholder, while a corporate legal entity can only be a shareholder. Further, foreign nationals, foreign corporate entities or NRIs are allowed to be Directors and/or Shareholders of a Company with Foreign Direct Investment, making it the preferred choice of entity for foreign promoters.

The concept of OPC is basically to eradicate the limitation of a sole proprietorship, which is the most popular form for small businesses in India. The liability of owner is limited to the invested capital in this form.

A Partnership Firm is a popular form of business constitution for businesses that are owned, managed and controlled by an Association of People for profit. Partnership firms are relatively easy to start are is prevalent amongst small and medium sized businesses in the unorganized sectors.

A Partnership is easy to form as no cumbersome 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.

Limited Liability Partnerships, LLP is a unique and new form of business that combines the advantages of both ‘Company’ and ‘Partnership’ in a single business entity. LLP is a superior form to partnership. The partnership is often discouraged to use because of its unlimited liability feature, i.e. your personal assets may also be held up in case all the dues are not cleared. Hence, it is very risky to use this form of business. So, to overcome this problem, a most important feature of limited liability of company is added to the partnership, which results in Limited Liability Partnership.
