Sole Proprietorship Firm Registration in India - online process ,fees , Documents Required

A sole proprietorship is owned and operated by a single individual who bears unlimited liability for debts. A private limited company is a separate legal entity from its shareholders, offering limited liability to its owners. An LLP provides limited liability to its partners and offers flexibility in management. A One Person Company (OPC) is a single-member private limited company, offering limited liability to its sole owner. A partnership involves two or more individuals managing a business together, sharing profits and liabilities equally or as per agreement. Each structure differs in terms of liability, ownership, and regulatory requirements.

What is Sole Proprietorship Firm ?

A sole proprietorship is the simplest form of business where a single individual owns and manages the entire enterprise. In this setup, there’s no legal distinction between the owner and the business entity. The owner bears full responsibility for the business’s debts, losses, and legal liabilities. While offering complete control and flexibility, a sole proprietorship lacks separate legal status, making the owner personally liable for any obligations. It’s commonly chosen by small-scale businesses or freelancers due to its ease of setup and minimal regulatory requirements. However, it’s important to note that the proprietor’s personal assets are at risk in case of business-related issues.
