Mandatory Compliances For a Partnership Firm

Jitesh Agarwal | 30 April 2018

Partnership firms are relatively easy to start and are prevalent amongst small and medium sized businesses in the unorganized sectors. With the introduction of Limited Liability Partnerships in India, Partnership Firms are losing their prevalence due to the added advantages offered by a Limited Liability Partnership.

Requirement Explanation
Obtaining PAN
Every Partnership firm must procure a PAN Card from
the Income Tax Authorities.

irrespective of amount of income or loss in Form ITR-5
Tax Audit The Partnership firm is liable for tax audit if:
