Formation of Legal Document of Company and Partnership



Definition as given in Companies Ordinance 1984

“Company means a company formed and registered under this ordinance or an existing company.”


It is very easy to establish a sole proprietorship business or a partnership firm as there is a few regulations to meet. But for the establishment of a company, a lot of formalities are to be complied with. The registration of the company is mandatory before starting its operation. The formation of a company, right from the origin of idea to establish a company goes through four different stages, like

Stage –I           Promotion

Stage- II          Incorporation

Stage- III        Raising of Capital

Stage- IV        Commencement of Business

The first two stages are necessary for both the formation of a private company and a public company whereas the last two stages are involved in the formation of a public company only.

Stage – I


Promotion of a business simply refers to all those activities that are required to be undertaken to establish a new business unit for manufacturing or distribution of any product or provide any service to the people. It starts with conceiving an idea of business or discovers an opportunity for doing a business, assess its feasibility and then take the necessary steps to launch the business unit. This involves ascertaining as to whether all the basic requirements such as land, building, raw material, machine, equipment etc. are available or not. If they are available one can assemble them, arrange the necessary funds and set up the business unit to give shape to the initial idea of establishing the business. The whole process is called business ‘promotion’ and the person who does it is called the ‘promoter’.

Before knowing the various stages of promotion of a joint stock company let us discuss about the role and importance of promoters.
