    Frequently Asked Questions

    We make it easy for you to find the answer to frequently asked questions here...
    Proprietor firm registration does not have a separate legal identity, the pan number of the proprietor will be used for all filing income tax returns, GST registration for proprietorship business, IE code application, etc. The proprietor is not distinct from the proprietorship firm, in fact in all communication it is directly addressed to the proprietor instead of the firm
    Proprietor needs to apply for a trademark application for protecting the business brand name, in most case proprietorship business is opted for a business that does not require brand value, so in case if you plan to establish your brand you can opt for a partnership or private limited company registration because it gives the flexibility to expand by adding another person into the business.
    You can sell your business to another person, however for the transfer of business key person such as a proprietor in case of the firm cannot be replaced like a partner in a partnership firm, so the person taking over the business need to get registered separately under different acts
    Once registered your udyam number will be active lifelong as per current rules, there is no such requirement to file a periodical return, however, we need to update any changes in the business address nature of business, etc.
    The Old Udyog Aadhar number is still valid, but when we need to update it we can do it only by migrating through udyam registration, so if you’ve already applied for udyog Aadhaar registration we need a UAM number for migrating to Udyam registration.
    Tax rates relevant to the individual are applicable to the income of the proprietorship firm, income from a proprietorship business is assessed as income from business or profession in the hands of the proprietor
    If his or her total income is less than the basic exemption limit then there is no requirement to file an income tax return, in certain case total income for the purpose of determining the requirement to file an income tax return is calculated without allowing certain deductions and exemptions, in simple if you have income deductions and exemptions it is better to approach income tax consultant for proprietorship business who can advise you on the subject
    Absolutely, there are no restrictions on it, however it is suggested to avoid replicating the name of other businesses for undesired purposes. Choose names that convey your nature of business in a better way
    There is no such condition regarding the minimum capital amount required, we suggest you work out the amount of investment required for assets, working capital required, initially set up and basic branding cost, mostly in the case of the service sector initial investment will be considerably lower as there will not be any blockage of funds in goods in trade
    Self-employed in the strict sense means doing business individually without any team under the individual e.g.: a self-employed computer technician, self-employed person practically does not have a separate brand working for him, while sole proprietorship tends to grow on a large scale, establish a brand name, etc
    Giving your business brand name, proper current account operations and separation of business transaction and personal transactions will surely give an added advantage of the bank overdraft facility, additional loan amount eligibility as financial statements will be available for running a business, etc

    Expert guidance for every sole proprietorship business owner

    1. Always calculate profitability assuming after GST registration application and without GST registration if it is not mandatory, as GST registration is practically made into a primary document for current account opening by most of the banks we should not tend to register GST immediately without any calculations.
    2. File income tax return for proprietorship firm each year within the due date
    3. Keep personal transactions and business transactions separate so that it is helpful for the assessment of financial growth, working capital management, and proper financial planning.
    4. A proprietorship business is a flexible form of business structure that is not specifically monitored by any of the specific acts, rules, or regulations, so in most cases, we ignore giving importance to business documentation, accounting, etc. Every business requires to be streamlined business processes and procedures which is irrelevant to the form of business, there are thousands of proprietary businesses with a few 100 crores only because their proprietors considered their business requirement rather than a legal requirement.
    5. If you are comfortable spending a few thousand more, it is recommended to opt for partnership firm registration as it gives more advantages of separate legal identity, improved credibility, and flexibility to add and remove partners.
    6. The only practical and considerable disadvantage between partnership and proprietorship is TDS provisions are applicable irrespective of the turnover limit for the business.
    7. A self-employed individual can opt for a proprietorship form of business which will give them an advantage in future business development through the advantage of improved credibility, the minor difference can make your future success, and business transactions made through current accounts make wonders for certain business needs
    8. Capital-intensive businesses should go for other forms of business structure, proprietorship will face a deadlock situation in case of rapid expansion and financial needs.
