    Partnership Registration

    Partnership firms in India are governed by the Partnership Act, 1932. Section 4 of the Act defines Partnership as – “An agreement between persons who have agreed to share profits of the business carried on by all or any one of them acting for all.”
    Registering a firm under the Partnership Act (hereinafter called the Act) is not mandatory as in the case of setting up a company. That said it is always advisable to get your firm registered at Registrar of Firms/Departmet of Industries of the Town/City where you are planning to set up the business. This ensures that you get a legal proof of the firm’s existence. Apart from that, the Act provides various benefits and rights to every partner – filing a suit in case of disputes, settling claims against third/external parties, etc. In case of any disputes, a court of law would first check the terms and conditions under which the partnership was formed. Registration of Partnership Deed takes care of this.
