Proprietorship Registration

One of the earliest and simplest business structures to establish in India is the sole proprietorship. A proprietorship is a form of business where the owner owns, runs, and controls the whole enterprise. There are extremely few compliance requirements because the proprietorship and proprietor are identical, making it simple to start. A proprietorship cannot have additional partners or shareholders because the proprietor and the business are one and the same. Furthermore, the proprietor’s minimal liability from the business operations carried out under the sole proprietorship is unprotected. Therefore, small firms with no more than 5 employees are best served by this type of corporate entity.

Who is a sole proprietor?
The proprietorship business has a single owner, who is the sole proprietor. Therefore, a business will be continued by opening a new bank account for it, and GST registration will be completed by using the proprietor’s PAN and Aadhar. The business’s assets and liabilities are entirely the owner’s responsibility.
How to check proprietorship status?
We are not required to register as a sole proprietorship in India. A platform to check the status of a sole proprietorship does not exist as a result. However, once a proprietor has submitted an application for GST registration, the proprietorship’s GST registration and filing status can be checked on the GST Portal to validate its existence.
Proprietorship legal entity status and recognition
The proprietorship is not recognised separately as a distinct legal entity. Therefore, for all legal and official purposes, the proprietorship and the business owner are regarded as one and the same.
Sole Proprietorship Registrations & Licenses
The proprietor must acquire PAN and Aadhar in order to operate a proprietorship firm in India. The business owner must register for UDYAM, GST, and open a bank current account. The owner may additionally need to register under the Shops & Establishment Act in several states. Depending on the business, the state, and the local rules, extra licences and permits can be necessary in addition to the aforementioned fundamental needs.
Advantages of Proprietorship
Easy registration:Since the sole proprietor is the same person who owns the business, there is no official incorporation or dissolution procedure. To comply with Indian rules and regulations, the owner may need to secure specific registrations and licences before starting a business.

Lower compliance:Since the sole proprietor is the same person who owns the business, there is no official incorporation or dissolution procedure. To comply with Indian rules and regulations, the owner may need to secure specific registrations and licences before starting a business.

Simplicity:Since there are no shareholders, partners, or directors, the proprietor can easily run this business with the fewest number of paperwork and approvals needed. Therefore, extremely tiny enterprises are best suited for this type of business structure.

Business decision:In a proprietorship, only the business owner makes choices on the operation. No other person’s approval or consent is necessary. Consequently, a business owner usually has the ability to make swift judgements on his operations.

Complete control:Because the owner of a sole proprietorship is the only owner. He or she has total authority over all resources, earnings, costs, and corporate activities.

Disadvantages of Sole Proprietorship
Funding:This kind of corporate organisation depends only on one person’s financial resources, borrowing capacity, and credit history. In this form of business structure, there are no other participants, so obtaining bank financing will be quite challenging. Since this sort of corporate entity does not permit profit sharing or shareholding, raising equity money will not be viable.
Personal liability:If a proprietor is unable to pay business loans or taxes, in a proprietorship – the personal assets of the business owner can be attached or encumbered. Hence, in this type of business structure – the proprietor will be held personally liable until all the liabilities are extinguished.
Business continuity:The sole proprietorship will be automatically dissolved in the event of the business owner’s death or disability. As a result, there won’t be any business continuity.
Growth:A proprietorship is subject to a number of limitations including business continuity, liability, and financing. Therefore, proprietorships are only used by very tiny, unorganised firms.
Unincorporated business:Businesses that are not incorporated are sole proprietorships. As a result, it is impossible to check if a sole proprietorship is active or not using a centralised database. Sole proprietorships are typically categorised as unorganised commercial entities.
