A partnership is a group of people who get together, according to the Partnership Act of 1932.
A partnership is an agreement between 2 or more persons to split the profits of a business they run together or independently. Individuals are referred to as "partners," whereas a collection of partners is referred to as a "firm."
A limited liability partnership (LLP) is a type of partnership in which one partner is not accountable for the actions of another partner in the organization.
A registered partnership firm has filed a registration application with the Registrar of Firms and acquired a registration certificate. Unregistered partnerships do not have a registration certificate from the Registrar of Firms.
A partnership firm is obligated to pay the following tax percentages under the Income Tax Act of 1961: –
Interest & Remuneration paid by Firm/LLP is allowed as deduction if following conditions criteria fulfilled:
To reduce the compliance and tax-related burden of small taxpayers, the govt notify a scheme of Presumptive Taxation. Under this scheme, the small taxpayers are not required to maintain books of accounts, and their profits are presumed to be a specific percentage of the Total Sales / Receipts.
Resident individual, HUF, or partnership firm engaged in eligible business and who has not claimed deduction under section 10AA or Chapter VIA under "C– Deductions in respect of certain incomes."
Any business, other than business referred to in section 44AE, whose total turnover/ gross receipts in the P.Y. <= Rs. 200 lakhs
8% of total turnover/ sales/ gross receipts or a sum higher than the sum above claimed to have earned the assessee.

This form can only be used by a person who is a resident for income tax purposes. So a non resident cannot use it even if his income is below 50 lakhs and has income taxable on a presumptive basis.
|Firms & LLP||Flat rate of 30%|
|Firm & LLP||Surcharge|
|More than 1Crore||12%|
Marginal relief is available if the tax payable including surcharge is more than the excess of income over the limit.
The Form ITR-5 is required to be used when filing tax returns for a partnership firm as a whole, not for the individual partners. It is important not to mix up forms ITR-5 and ITR-3. ITR-5, like all other income tax returns, can be filed online through the income tax department's website.
It is also worth mentioning that no need to provide any supporting documentation when filing these forms. Only if the Income Tax Department specifically requests them should these documents be submitted.
A business must file an income tax return online, with or without a digital signature. The company can also use the Electronic Verification Code to file its income tax return. When a partnership firm is obliged to undergo an audit, it must electronically file its income tax returns. The partners must use a class-3 digital signature to verify the filing procedure when filing their income tax returns.
