No registration is required to start a sole proprietorship (so yes, “sole proprietorship registration” is a wrong thing to say) and is therefore an inexpensive manner of commencing business. A sole proprietorship is a business that is owned, run and controlled by one person only. It is one of the most common forms of business in India, mostly used by small businesses operating in the unorganized sectors and local markets.

Proprietorships are very easy to start and have very minimal regulatory compliance requirement for getting started. However, after the start-up phase, proprietorship's do not offer the promoter a host of other benefits such as limited liability, separate legal entity, independent existence, transferability, etc., which are desirable features for any business. Therefore, proprietorship's are suited for unorganized, small businesses that will have a limited existence. There is no mechanism provided by the Government of India for the registration or incorporation of a Proprietorship. Therefore, the existence of a proprietorship is established only by tax registrations like service tax Registration or VAT/CST registration and other business registrations like Shops & Establishment License, Employee Provident Fund Registration, Importer Exporter Code and Professional Tax that a Proprietorship is required to have as per the rules and regulations. At, we can help you establish an identity for your Proprietorship by obtaining the relevant registrations.
