Literally, the word “business” means the state of being busy. Generally, the term business includes all human activities concerned with earning money. There are many types of businesses like sole proprietorship, partnership, Joint Stock Companies, cooperative societies and combination. Sole proprietorship is the simplest form of business under which there is no legal entity to run it but on the other hand owner has to face lack of capital and his liability is also unlimited. It simply refers to a person who owns the business and is personally responsible for its debts. Partnership is another form of business, backed up by legal formalities. In partnership, partners share their resources and experiences. In this type of business all the partners manage the business equally and profits are shared according to their investments.
