What is a Sole Proprietorship?
When a business is owned and governed by one person it is called a sole proprietorship company. This type of business can be started in 15 days and hence makes it one of the most popular kinds of business to begin in the unsystematic sector, specifically among merchants and small traders. For a sole proprietorship business, registrations are not required as they are identified by alternate registrations such as GST registrations. However, its liability is unlimited and it also doesn’t have a continuous presence.
Benefits of Proprietorship
- Minimum Compliance
Sole Proprietorships have minimum compliance as this firm is identified by its government and tax registrations. Therefore, the degree of its agreement is confined to the yearly filing of the service, sales or professional taxes.
- Simple to Begin
Any sole proprietorship is simple to begin. One needs to simply have a GST Registration in place. Hence, the procedure is not complicated. Therefore, the sole proprietorship business can be set up in 15 days with the help of a PAN card for identity and proof of address.
When compared to an OPC or One Person Company, a Sole Proprietorship is economical due to its minimum compliance requisites. Even in the long-term perspective, it is still inexpensive. It works out much cheaper because one would not need to hire an auditor. One of the main reasons why small merchants and traders choose it.
