Can ABC& Associates be a Proprietorship Firm..

Is the term & Associates only a name and does not signify partners in the firm..

No term signifies anything unless the it is done through necessary means.
Guest (Expert) 30 January 2013

It is not understood, as a chief manager, in what context you have asked this question and in what manner you are related to the firm?

However, for your information, a properietory firm is a single ownership firm. The term "& associates," if included in the name of the firm means there is a possibility of some partners in the firm. The term ' & (and) itself denotes additional persons. But sometimes, a person being a layman, unwittingly and not knowing about the legal implications, includes some suffix with his name to indicate that the firm is run by more than one person.

However, associates can also be the family members not being shown as partners of the firm through any formal agreement. BUT certainly, the chief Manager, like you, as an employee cannot be treated as an associate.
