The partnership firm should be dissolved and the sole proprietorship firm with the same name can be continued by the proprietor. But it should be intimated to ICAI by filing form and submitting partnership dissolution deed If the proprietorship firm is continued with the same name, experience of firm will be considered for bank audits.
