Starting a Business ? Which type of Entity should you choose

Updated: May 27

When starting a business in India, it's important to choose the right legal structure. The most common types of business entities in India include:

  • Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

  • Private Limited Company

  • Public Limited Company

  • Partnership Firm

  • Sole Proprietorship

  • One Person Company

Each entity has its own registration requirements and legal obligations. Understanding these differences is crucial when deciding how to structure your business.

Registration Requirements

The registration requirements vary depending on the type of business entity:

  • LLPs, Private Limited Companies, and Public Limited Companies must register with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).

  • Partnership Firms do not require registration with the MCA, but a partnership deed is recommended. Registration with the Registrar of Firms in the respective state is optional.

  • Sole Proprietorships do not require any registration with the MCA. However, registration for GST, trademark, and PAN is necessary.

  • One Person Companies must register with the MCA.
