What is a Sole Proprietorship Firm?
A Sole Proprietorship Firm is an entity that is owned, controlled and managed by a single person who is also known as Proprietor. In a Proprietorship, there’s no legal distinction between the Owner and the Proprietorship Firm.
Unlike other forms of legal entities such as Partnership Firm, Private Limited Company, LLP, etc. which may take up to 10-15 days to be registered, the Proprietorship can be started within a few days which makes it a very popular choice of business, to begin with especially among merchants and small traders. We, at LegalFidelity, can help you start your Proprietorship Firm quickly within 3-5 Days.
For a Proprietorship, there’s no specific type of registration. Thus it is identified by other types of registrations such as MSME, GST, etc. to name a few. Also, there’s unlimited liability in Sole Proprietorship aka Sole Trader Registration.
