A sole proprietorship, also known as a sole trader or simply a proprietorship, is a type of business structure that is owned and run by one individual and in which there is no legal distinction between the owner and the business. The owner receives all profits (after tax) and has unlimited responsibility for all losses and debts. All assets and debts of the business in the proprietorship are owned by the proprietor. This means that the owner has no less liability than if they were acting as an individual instead of as a business.

A sole proprietor may use a trade name or business name other than his or her name. In India, there is no specific law for registration of sole proprietorship, but as per the Shop and Establishment Law (State Law), every establishment needs to get registered under the Act, which can be used as limited purpose sole proprietorship registration.

As the name reveals, a sole proprietorship is operated managed and run by a single individual. The identity of the organization is nothing but the individual himself.  However, depending on the nature of business, it is required to obtain registration such as GST, Professional Tax etc. A sole proprietorship can be registered under the MSME Act to avail benefits and protection.

The proprietorship business carries unlimited business risk as the business proprietor is individually responsible to settle all business liabilities. The proprietor’s personal assets are at risk to compensate the business liabilities.
