Registration formalities :

A company can be registered by the registrar of the local office. A declaration in the prescribed form, specially signed and verified by all partners or their agents, containing the prescribed fee, stating: the name of the company, (b) the location or headquarters of the company, ( c) the names of all other places where the company does business, (d) the date each partner joined the company, (e) the full and permanent addresses of the partners, and (f) the duration of the company.

An unregistered company and its partners suffer from certain disabilities due to non-registration:

1. A partner cannot bring a lawsuit (against the company or one of its partners) to enforce a right under a contract or a right granted by the Partnership Act.

2. A lawsuit cannot be brought against a third party on behalf of an unregistered company in order to assert a right under a contract.

3. An unregistered company cannot demand set-off in a lawsuit.

Exceptions :

There are certain exceptions to the above rules.

1. A partner of an unregistered company can file a lawsuit for the company to be dissolved and for accounts.

2. Lawsuits can be filed for the realization of the characteristics of a dissolved company, even if it has not been registered.
