My brothers are having proeritorship firm in indore. Due to increased turnover they are planning to form a PVT LTD company. I wants to know the advantage of PVT LTD company. whether from tax & turnover point of veiw Partenership firm will be suitable or Pvt ltd firm?
With reference to your query regarding shifting of business from the Proprietary mode to Private Company. My suggestions for the same are as under.
1. Before explaining let us first distinguished the features of Proprietary and Company
One of the major differences between proprietorship and company is the liability of owner. In case of proprietorship the liability of the owner is unlimited. i.e.:- in case of insolvency of firm, property of owner can be used for payment of dues business. However in case of company the liability of owner is limited i.e. :- in case of insolvency the private property of shareholder can not be used for payment of business dues. Hence company mode of business formation is ideal for those who going to do business by partnership because even in partnership liability of partners is unlimited. Hence if one partner has defaulted in business the other partner property can be used for payment of dues of business.
2. Taxation Factor
Tax rate in proprietary concerned is based on individual and for company it is flat tax @ 33 % (including surcharge.)
Cost in case of company formation and winding up is high as compare to preparatory concerned. Many banks recognized company for giving loan as compare to proprietary concerned
Conclusions: therefore company mode of formation is suitable for high profit making and high turnover business. It is helpful for further expansion of business.
There are many other advantages in company formation.

The fundamental defect of a company is double taxation- firstly the company has to pay the applicable taxes and after that when it distributes the profit to its shareholder, they pay taxes. The fundamental benefit is limited liability. Thus, if the business is not very risky and partnership is doing well- one may continue with it.
