1. The business can be commenced by forming a company, partnership or sole proprietorship.

2. You will be liable to obtain registration if your turnover from services is exceeding Rs.10lakhs and also your service is liable to service tax as per section 65 of the Finance Act,1994. 

3. Get a flawless agreement drafted by your lawyer as your rights and liabilities in the event of a dispute will flow out of it.
