Partnership Firm Registration

Partnership, the word itself suggest the meaning of the term where there is an involvement of two or more individuals, it forms partnership but here in legal world people don’t just come together to hangout or have tea party, they form a relationship to earn profit and tackle loss, if any. Partnership in business world is a term well known and implemented by many to form involvement of two or more people in order to earn profit and bear loss thereof divided according to agreed ratio. But, unlike other companies, partnership doesn’t have liberty of having separate entity of its own.

I would like to discuss:

Partnership firms in India are directed by the Indian Partnership Act, 1932. As per Section 4 of Indian Partnership Act, 1932 “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. Persons who have entered into partnership with one another are called individually, “partners” and collectively “a firm”, and the name under which their business is carried on is called the “firm-name”.
