What is Partnership Firm?

Partnership firm represents a business entity that is formed with a purpose of making a profit from the business. Two or more parties come together with a formal agreement (known as Partnership Deed) to own and manage the business. The risk and responsibilities are shared amongst the partners that shred the burden of an individual partner. Also, when two comes together, more capital and expertise are combined that helps to reach the business goal(s) easily.

Benefits of Partnership Firm

Shared Responsibilities

The word Partnership itself describes individuals coming together for some common business object. The partners share the responsibility to work and manage the business together. Responsibilities for a particular field or task can be assigned to one or more partners by indicating the same in a Partnership Deed.

Operating Flexibility

A Partnership firm is operated on the basis of the Partnership deed executed by the partners, mutually. The partners can decide how to operate the business with their mutual consent. Also, the Partnership Deed can be changed according to the requirement even after partnership deed registration is completed. There are no limitations or restrictions on the partners in regards to running the business, as long as it is covered under the signed agreement.

Pre-defined Object or Period

At the time of registering a Partnership firm, the deed enumerates the pre-defined business objectives and activities, which is the main aim to commence business. A partnership can be formed within a specified period or to complete a specific project or object. Once the same is completed, the partnership will automatically stand dissolved.

Various Financial Returns to the Partners

Partners involved with the firm get various types of returns for their capital as well as their individual efforts. The working partner also receives remuneration in addition to the interest on capital and share of profit, as may be agreed by the partners. Also, the share of profit from partnership firm is exempt for the partner receiving it.

No Annual Returns

There is no need to submit an annual return to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. If we compare partnership firm with Limited Liability Partnership, then we do not have to file an annual return in the Partnership firm to the ministry of Corporate Affairs, while we have to fulfill many compliances in the Limited Liability Partnership.

Sharing of Risk

One of the most significant advantages of the partnership firm is that the risk gets equalized in all the partners. As there are multiple partners in a partnership, so the risk gets balanced.

Easy to Dissolve

A partnership business can be dissolved after making the agreement between partners regarding the dissolution of the business. The dissolution of the partnership does not require any complex legal proceedings.

No statutory Audit

One of the significant advantages of a Partnership firm is, there is no requirement of a Statuary Audit. Therefore a Partnership Firm is not required to get its books of account audited. You may have to check your book of mind if there is any requirement of Income Tax Act. Sometimes it is required by the Income Tax Department.
