Partnership Registration Procedure

Selection of Name

A Partnership firm need to be started with a separate name by declaring the same in the agreement to be the name of the firm. However care should be taken while deciding the name of the firm to avoid any conflict with someone else trademark. We advises that the name of firm should be cross checked with the trademark registry to avoid any infringement or passing off the others Trademark or brand name.

Partnership Deed Drafting

The Partnership Agreement is the constitution of the firm which determines the relationship of partners among themselves as well as the relation of partners vis a vis firm. The agreement also lays down the methods of admitting a new partner or for removal of partner. The capital, Interest on Capital, Partners Salary, and profit sharing ratio are some of the predominant items in the agreement which need to be carefully drafted.

Partnership Deed Notarisation

A Partnership Deed must be well drafted and the signature of the partners be made on the agreement in presence of witnesses before a Notary Public. This brings certainty and establishes that the agreement of partnership is made with free consent of the parties and in presence of witnesses so that no one backs out later on that he is not the party of the agreement.

Common Questions On Partnership Registration Online

Q. Should a partnership firm be registered?

Ans : There is no provision under the partnership Act, 1932 which mandate the registration of partnership. However the act itself provides for procedure of registration of firm. Thus the registration is optional but highly recommended, as an unregistered firm shall not be able to recover any money in excess of INR 100/- . Apart from the above legal impediment, from the practical point of view also the firm should get registered in order to bring certainty in the relationship of partners and the firm per se.
