LLP Compliance


Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), governed by the LLP Act, 2008 came into force on 31/03/2009. The main objective behind such type of partnership was to introduce a type of business form which is a perfect combination of the operational easiness and flexibility of a partnership firm along with the limited liability of its partners which was earlier a limitation of partnership firm formed under Indian Partnership Act, 1932. In an LLP the formation of a partner is quite unique in the sense that there are two designated partners who give their name and consent to become the partner of the concerned LLP, at the time of its formation. Also, none of the partners can be held responsible for any misconduct or negligence leading to the imposition of any penalty or causing loss to the LLP.  Just like the directors in a company, the designated partners have the right as well as the duty to manage internal and external business affairs, specifically assigned, in accordance with the LLP Agreement.


  1. SEPARATE LEGAL ENTITY – LLP, unlike a partnership firm, is a body corporate having a separate legal entity from its partners. Thus, the LLP can own assets in its own name and can also sue or be sued by any other person.
  2. COMBINATION OF FIRM AND COMPANY – LLP is having the features of both company and partnership firm, thus making it a more attractive choice of business form.
  3. DESIGNATED PARTNERS - Every LLP is required to have at least two designated partners, and at least one of them should be an Indian resident i.e. he should be in India for at least 182 days in a financial year.
  4. PARTNERS ARE THE AGENT OF LLP – One of the main features is that all the partners of the LLP, shall be agents of such LLP i.e. any act of partners will make the LLP accountable for the same but any partner’s act cannot bind another partner.
  5. LLP AGREEMENT IS VOLUNTARY – Partners of an LLP are not required to enter into an LLP agreement since the same is not mandatory and in the absence of one, the mutual rights and liability of partners shall be determined in accordance with Schedule I of the LLP act, 2008.
  6. LIMITED LIABILITY – The partners of the LLP are having limited liabilities, which means that in case the assets of the LLP become insufficient to pay any liability, then the partners are liable only to the extent of their contribution and thus cannot be asked to pay from their personal assets.
  7. NAME CLAUSE - Every limited liability partnership is required to use the word “limited liability partnership” at the end of their firm’s name and the same be printed outside all their business outlets as well as on their official communication documents.
  8. PERPETUAL SUCCESSION – LLP, just like a company is having perpetual succession, which means that the retirement, death, and leaving of the firm by any partner or group of partners, will not affect the existence of the LLP.
  9. AUDIT REQUIREMENT – Any LLP whose contribution exceeds Rs. 25 lakhs or annual turnover exceeds Rs. 40 lakhs are required to file an audited annual statement of accounts along with solvency reports to the concerned Registrar.
  10. MANDATORY REGISTRATION – LLP is required to take registration mandatorily under the LLP Act, 2008.
  11. NUMBER OF PARTNERS – Unlike a partnership firm, an LLP shall have a minimum of 2 partners who will be the designated partners. There is no ceiling on the maximum partners.

Benefits of LLP Formation

  1. LIMITED LIABILITY OF PARTNERS – The partners of the LLP are having limited liabilities, which means that in case the assets of the LLP become insufficient to pay any liability, then the partners are liable only to the extent of their contribution and they cannot be asked to pay from their personal assets.
  1. SEPARATE LEGAL ENTITY – LLP is having a separate legal entity. Thus, they can own assets in its own name and can also sue or be sued by any other person.
  2. COST INVOLVED – The cost of formation of LLP is quite lesser than other forms of business and also the compliance cost is also very less.
  3. NO MUTUAL AGENCY - The partners of the LLP cannot be held liable and responsible for the misconduct or negligence of another partner.
  4. EASE OF FORMATION – LLP is much simpler and less time-consuming in terms of formation.
  5. EASE OF COMPLIANCE AND RESTRICTIONS – There are very few restrictions and compliances required to be fulfilled by the LLP.
