In HUF,Family assets are pooled and carry a bussiness based on pooled assets.An hindhu family come together and forms HUF with common property,do the bussiness and earn profits.All members may or may not participate in doing bussiness.The kartha will look over the bussiness activities. HUF treated as separate legal entity.i.e it is separate from its members.
