About Partnership Registration


A Partnership business is a kind of business structure where two or more individuals manage and operate a business by sharing profit and losses in the prescribed ratio. Such kind of partnership business is most favourable among small and mid-sized businesses. However, registering a partnership is not necessary but legal experts always advice the applicants to obtain the registration before they start their business. Also, in case the partnership is registered, it will be easy for it to get converted into other entities like LLP, Company etc. in future.

A Partnership firm can be registered by at least two persons and such firm is governed under the rules and regulations framed as per Partnership Act, 1932. As per the Act, “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.”

A Partnership deed to be valid must be written and not oral. The terms and conditions of the Partnership Deed may vary as per the interest of the parties but must not be contradictory to any provision of Indian Partnership Act, 1932.
