Limited Liablity Partnership Registration

Meaning

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) introduced in 2008 is a prominent legal business structure in India having fewer legal compliances, as the name suggests LLP limits the liability of its partners & lends protection from the incompetence or misdeeds of the other partners. LLP is one of the simplest forms of business to incorporate and manage in India.

Also, LLP is less expensive to incorporate and maintain than a Private Limited Company & serves as a better option from tax perspective.

Due to the simple incorporation procedure and lesser compliance formalities, LLP is preferred by Professionals, Medium and Small businesses. LLPs are incapable of issuing equity shares, It should thus, not be be used for any business that requires raising equity funds during its existence.

LIMITED LIABILITY

In a Partnership, partners are personally liable for all their debts, if it is not repaid by the business, the partners would have to sell their personal assets. 

PERPETUAL SUCCESSION

A LLP is a business entity having perpetual succession that means continued existence until it is legally dissolved or wound up.

EASY TRANSFERABILITY

The ownership can be easily transferred to another person by introduction of a new partner in the LLP.

FEWER LEGAL COMPLIANCES

LLPs are most suitable for startups and small businesses that are commencing their operations and wish to have minimal legal compliance related formalities.

A private limited partnership offers legal protection to its shareholders but restricts its ownership. It is relatively convenient to manage and run the company with a possibility of expansion for growing companies. Also, it is easy to dissolve and wind up the company.
