3. Registration of Firm with Income Tax Department-
It is mandatory for all firms to apply for Registration with the Income Tax Department and have a PAN Card.

Advantages of Partnership Firm :

  • Existence of an Agency Relation- Each partner is a principal in himself who can act in his own right. Further, he can also act on behalf of other partners by acting as their agent.

  • Combined Management- Partners running the business need to take consent of other partners for making the requisite decisions.

  • Duration of the Partnership Firm- The partnership Firm may continue as long as the partners wish to do so. However, as per law, the partnership can come to an end if any of the partners dies, retires or becomes insolvent. But, the remaining partners can continue doing business under the same name after sorting out the due share of the outgoing partner.

  • Minimal requirement of Compliances- One of the main advantages of a Partnership Firm is that there are very minimal requirements in terms of compliance. A registered/unregistered Partnership Firms are only required to file their income tax return in case of non-audit. Audit of Firm done only when the turnover are exceeds the prescribed maximum limit to Audit mentioned in the Income Tax Act.



Disadvantage of Partnership Firms :

  • Unlimited Liability of the Partners – Each Partner is personally liable for all losses arising in the course of business. It means, their personal assets can be used to pay off the outstanding debts of the partnership firm.

  • Limitation on the transferability of share- A partner cannot transfer his share to any other person. He may however do so on the consent of other partners. The interest of a Partner in a Partnership firm is not easily transferrable, and the ownership structure does not allow for investment from Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists or Private Equity Firms.
