What is Proprietorship Registration ?

Sole Proprietorship is a firm, which is owned by a single person. Sole Proprietorship can be incorporated in 15 days and hence makes it one of the most popular types of business to begin in the unsystematic sector, specifically among merchants and small traders. The government of India has not prescribed any sole proprietorship firm rules and regulations in India or there is no registration mechanism for Sole Proprietorship Firm registration Thus, the registration of a proprietorship can only be recognized through tax registrations that the business is required to have as per the rules and regulations. These tax registrations may include GST Registration and/or SSI/MSME Registration that should be obtained in the name of the Proprietor to establish that the Proprietor is operating a business as a sole proprietorship.

Benefits of a Sole Proprietorship:

Compliance required by Proprietorship firm

GST Registration

GST registration is one of the ways to get a proprietorship registration done. You can get yourself registered under GST if your annual turnover is more than Rs. 40 lakhs. Also, if you are doing online business (selling through Amazon, Flipkart, etc.), you are required to get a GST number under the goods and service tax Act.

GST Return

The proprietorship firms registered under GST are required to file the GST return on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis. GST return is a document that contains the details of the income of the taxpayer. As the filing of GST returns is mandatory for all the registered Taxpayers including Partnership firms.

MSME Registration

You can get yourself registered as a Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) under the MSME Act. The application can be filed electronically. Although it isn’t compulsory to register as an SME, it is highly beneficial, especially at the time of taking a loan for the business. Also getting Udyog Aadhar Registration will be very beneficial.


The accounting for a sole proprietorship does not require a separate set of accounting records since the owner is considered to be inseparable from the business. Nonetheless, it is always advisable to maintain records for business activities of a Proprietorship firm, to judge whether these operations are generating a profit.

IT Return

Income tax filing must be filed by all proprietorship having a taxable income over the exemption threshold. In some cases, a tax audit would also be required. Since proprietorship is considered to be the same as the proprietor, the income tax return filing procedure for a proprietorship is similar to individual income tax return filing.

Tax Audit

There is no obligation for a sole proprietor under any law to get the accounts except in the case where the turnover of a proprietary business in any financial year exceeds 1 Crores Rupees and gross receipt from profession exceeds 50 Lakhs Rupees. In both cases, the audit of accounts is compulsory for a proprietor under the Income Tax Act, 1961.

Documents Required for Proprietorship Registration


  • Address and identity proof
  • PAN card, KYC documents and
  • Rental agreement or sale deed (in case of Shops & Establishment Act Registration).
