A Proprietorship business needs no registration. Therefore, it is one of the easiest to start with no formalities. However, after starting up the Proprietorship, it is relatively harder to open a bank account or obtain a payment gateway in the name of the business – since more registrations may be required.
Since the name of a Proprietorship is not registered, a Proprietorship can choose to have any name – as long as it does not infringe on a registered trademark. However, since the name is not registered, any other person can also use the same business name unless trademark registration is obtained.
A Proprietorship with less than Rs. 2.5 lakhs of income is not required to pay any income tax, as Proprietorships are taxed as the individual owing the business. However, once, income of the business exceeds Rs. 10 lakhs per annum, there are no major advantages for a Proprietorship in terms of taxation.


Only one person is required to start a Proprietorship and a Proprietorship can have only one promoter.
Proprietorship firms do not have a Certificate of Incorporation or Certificate of Registration. The identity and legitimacy of a Proprietorship firm is established by registering with the various Government authorities..
Proprietorship will have to file their annual tax return with the Income Tax Department. Other tax filings like service tax filing or VAT/CST filign= may be necessary from time to time, based on the business activity performed. However, annual report or accounts need not be filed with the Ministry or Corporate Affairs, which is required for Limited Liability Partnerships and Companies.
