Proprietorship Firm Registration

The simplest form of a registered business is that of Sole Proprietorship. It is a business that is owned, managed and run by a single person. As with private and public limited companies, Sole Proprietorship is not registered with a Memorandum and Article of Association. Its registration is recognized by service or tax registration. Also, unlike other forms of companies, it does not have to follow a plethora of rules and regulations. It is a great source of income for the people in the unorganized sector of the Indian economy.

  • The owner has the freedom to start and end the business at their will. They have the freedom to run the business according to their needs.

Documents Required for Proprietorship Registration

Few of the required legal documents will have to be provided by the client while the rest will be prepared by us. For successfully registering as a Sole Proprietorship business, the following documents will be needed:

  • PAN card of the owner of the business.
  • Electricity or water bill for address identification purposes.
  • Copy of a valid government ID of the owner.

Since there are no directors or shareholders in the company, very few documents are required. These are used to
identify the person and their address. These details, along with the PAN card prove enough to get a person registered as Sole Proprietorship and thus, it is the easiest way of doing business on a small scale. To open up a bank account for this type of firm, the owner will need two registration forms. These forms could include service tax, MSME registration, Professional License, etc.


The person must be of legal age, a citizen and resident of India.
One of the advantages of Sole Proprietorship is that there is no minimum requirement of capital. The owner can start with whatever is available with them.
No, a sole proprietorship is not issued a Certificate of Incorporation. Its identity is established through service tax registration, MSME registration, VAT registration, and other such documents.
