LLP Registration

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) registration, popularly known as LLP registration is an alternative business vehicle to carry out business which combines the characteristics of a private company and a conventional partnership. LLP formation provides limited liability company status to its partners and offers the flexibility of internal arrangement through an LLP agreement between the partners. This combination will give entrepreneurs and businessmen a more structured business vehicle compared to a sole proprietorship or a conventional partnership. LLP registration provides the flexibility of controlling the business operation in accordance with the partnership agreement whilst enjoying the limited liability status compared to a company which is subject to strict compliance requirements under the Companies Act 2013 in most of its affairs. The major advantage of setting up a LLP registration in India is that it has a separate legal entity from its partners and combines the advantages of both the Company and Partnership into a single form of organization. In Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) registration, one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner’s misconduct or negligence, this is an important difference from that of a unlimited partnership.

LLP formation offers simple and flexible procedures in terms of incorporation of LLP and management and has less number of compliances in comparison to other entities. In an LLP, all partners have a form of limited liability company for each individual’s protection within the partnership, similar to that of the shareholders of a corporation.

Limited Liability Partnership is managed as per the LLP Agreement, however in the absence of such agreement the LLP would be governed by the framework provided under Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008 (LLP act). LLP registration process is less complex than other form of business.
