A Sole proprietorship is a business which is owned, managed and controlled by a single person. It is one of the most common form of business in India, utilized by small businesses operating in the unorganized sectors.
Sole Proprietorship firms are one of the most commonly seen business types in our country. With a registration process that defines the very meaning of the word simple, it is no big wonder that entrepreneurs are choosing to pick proprietorship as their choice of business type when they are starting solo.
Any Indian citizen with a current account in the name of their business can start a sole proprietorship. Registration may or may not be required, depending on what business you are planning to establish. However, to open a current account, banks typically require a Shops & Establishments Registration.
