Types of Partnership

There are two kinds of Partnership, registered Partnership and unregistered Partnership.

The Act doesn't require the Partnership Deed/Partnership Firm to be registered and in other words, doesn't require the Partnership Firm to be a registered Firm. Therefore various partnership businesses exist as an unregistered firm.

There aren't any penalties for non-registration of a partnership firm, and a partnership firm can even be registered after formation. However, unregistered partnership firms have certain rights denied in Section 69 of the Partnership Act, which deals with the results of non-registration of a partnership firm. variety of the disadvantages of an unregistered firm are:

A partner of an unregistered firm cannot file a suit in any court against the firm or other partners for the enforcement of any right arising from a contract or right conferred by the Partnership Act.

No suit to enforce a right arising from an agreement are often instituted in any Court by or on behalf of a firm against any third party unless the firm is registered. An unregistered firm or any of its partners cannot claim set-off or other proceedings during a dispute with a third party.

Therefore, any partnership should be registered sooner or later.

However, unlike private Ltd. shareholder, the partners of an LLP have the proper to manage the business directly.

Post incorporation, an LLP can have unlimited partners. just in case of a Partnership Firm, if the amount of partners at any time reduces below the mandatory minimum of two thanks to death, incapacitation or resignation of a Partner, the partnership firm would stand dissolved.

Advantages of a Partnership Firm

One of the most advantages of a Partnership Firm is that there are very minimal requirements in terms of compliance. as an example , a corporation or LLP requires the annual filing of its financial statements with the Registrar of Companies. Such documents filed with the MCA also are made public documents. On the opposite hand, registered/unregistered Partnership Firms aren't required to file any annual returns, and therefore the financial statements of a partnership firm wouldn't be made publicly available. Also, the accounts of a registered / unregistered partnership firm aren't required to be audited. Whereas, the accounts of a indebtedness Partnership (LLP) are required to be audited by a practising accountant when the turnover exceeds Rs.40 lakhs once a year or when capital contribution exceeds Rs. 25 lakhs

Disadvantages of a Partnership Firm

Partnership firm doesn't provide its Partners with indebtedness protection and doesn't have perpetual existence. Also, the interest of a Partner during a Partnership firm isn't easily transferrable, and therefore the ownership structure doesn't leave investment from Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists or Private Equity Firms. Banks / Financial Institutions also like better to lend to Companies than Partnership Firms as Companies are separate entities and therefore the regulatory requirement for financial reporting of Companies - makes a corporation more transparent and structured.
