Dear Madam/Sir,

Appreciations for such a nice article on the subject.
Since it has got 70% information in it, felt like I must write this mail to you for inquiring about this query.

We are very soon going to start a full fledged software partnership firm and if everything goes right, will be making it a Inc company from US.

Wanted to know, what are the documents required for starting such 'software' partnership firm ?

We are currently running a pvt. ltd. company in Nagpur, India called as percept web solutions pvt. ltd.

With Warm Regards,

Nupur Rotke,

Nagpur- India.

I am sorry I have no information about incorporations in US. I was looking into the operations of my startup and that is how I know the official procedure for some of the things which I have put up here. Personally I don't think you need any special registration of partnership firms to make it Inc. later. But I am really not authoritative on the subject and you should seek advice from someone else.

please forward the documents required for registration of firm

i open a business with my friend one year back nd all the money we invested we don,t have proof..
is it possible can we make it as a partnership firm, what will be the procidure...

As we have applied for partnership firm, named as "Indian Institute Of Distance Education" but the registration office in Nagpur denied us because of name, they told that, this name can not be given. Will you please explain the reason?

As I am not an advocate, I don't know the reason. But even I recollect hearing that there are restrictions of using the name "India" in the firm name.

How to find firm registration offices of the concerned locality in Hyderabad and Secunderabad.

Is there any different procedure to apply , if firm registration is in Hyderabad and manufacture is in some other district of Andhrapradesh.
