Overview

Transform Proprietorship to Partnership

Sole Proprietorship is the most preferred choice for small businesses. It is easier to start and operate and ideal for small businesses with limited budgets and operations. The name clearly suggests that a sole proprietorship has only one owner, and all the business income and profits belong to the owner. In addition, it also possesses unlimited liability in the event of losses, and the proprietor can also settle liabilities with their personal assets. However, if you want to expand your business, then higher investment from third parties could face restrictions due to legal ownership of a single individual. Therefore, business owners can look for new methods, ideas, and approaches for the transformation of a proprietorship into a partnership. After the conversion of a proprietorship into partnership, all the rights, assets, and liabilities of the Proprietorship pass on to the partnership firm, according to the consent of partners.

Advantages

Knowledge and Expertise Sharing 

Sole proprietorships reduce the possibilities of attracting external expertise. As business owners obtain investment from new partners after converting from a proprietorship to a partnership, they can also leverage the professional knowledge and contacts of the partner. This approach is especially helpful in cases where new partners are willing to share their expertise and contacts in return for a share in profits generated by the partnership. 

Distribution of Liabilities 

Converting to a partnership also safeguards owners of sole proprietors from the negative concerns of unlimited liability. Even though a sole proprietorship ensures unlimited liability, it can be a massive detriment in the event of debt or a catastrophic scenario. Therefore, the business owner must take personal liability in case of a proprietorship. On the other hand, a partnership helps in sharing liabilities among all the investing partners. Apart from sharing finance, expertise, and industry knowledge, partners also provide a safety net for businesses. 

Single Project Partnerships 

Limited partnership arrangements could also foster the benefits of limited exposure to risk for partners. Such type of partnership agreement is generally valid for single projects where partners collaborate with sole proprietors. The single project or limited partnership format helps proprietors in terms of financial assistance for single projects. Partners would have to face limited risks in single project partnerships. 

No Need for Starting a New Business 

With the conversion of a proprietorship into partnership, all the movable and immovable properties are vested automatically in the partnership alongside the liabilities and assets. Therefore, there is no specific requirement of fixed capital investment to start a new business altogether after the transformation. Partners can reach on agreements regarding their contributing amount to the partnership and mutual decisions regarding withdrawals. So, the transformation from a proprietorship to a partnership does not compromise on flexibility.

Document Required

The creation of a partnership firm has to follow the New GST Registration conditions and obtain the PAN, bank accounts, and GST registration accounts of the partnership firm. The foremost document that seals a partnership is a ‘Partnership Deed.’ The Partnership Deed provides specifications for all the terms and conditions that are enforced in the partnership. After preparing the partnership deed, the taxpayer must apply for a PAN number with the income tax department because it is a mandatory prerequisite for applying for registration under GST. In addition, you would need the following documents for incorporating a partnership.

Identification Proofs
  • Self- attested copies of PAN card of the firm and all partners
  • Photos of all partners
  • Self-attested copy of Aadhaar Card/voter ID/driving license/passport of all partners with the appropriate address provided in the partnership deed
  • A letter of authorization validating a partner as an authorized signatory for GST registration on behalf of the partnership 
Information about the Sole Proprietorship
  • Business address proof or a document that verifies the company’s business address
  • Statement of the firm’s bank account or passbook 
  • Copy of the firm’s certificate of registration under any other act
  • Utility bill or Property Tax Receipt with latest up to two months for the business place
Asset and Liability Statement
  • Another prominent requirement for registering a partnership refers to the statement of assets and liabilities of the sole proprietor. It is also essential to make sure that a competent CA verifies the statement of assets and liabilities. The details about assets and liabilities help in establishing the foundation for the financial management of the partnership.
