Benefits of Limited Liability Partnership Registration

A limited liability partnership or an LLP enjoys the status of a separate legal entity distinct from its members.

The term “limited liability” denotes that the liability of each and every member is limited to the extent of the amount contributed by them. On the other hand, this also means that if in case the said LLP firm incur any losses, then the personal assets of the partners will not be confiscated. Hence, the partners are made liable to the extent of their respective contributions.

Unlike the case of a Private Company, transferring ownership to others is pretty much as easy task under the concept of limited liability partnership.

A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) has a feature of perpetual succession, which means the entry of a new member and exit of an existing member will not affect the existence of an LLP firm.

Section 3 of the Limited LLP Act, 2008, states that for obtaining LLP registration, a firm is considered as a corporate body.

Two people can easily start an LLP firm that, too, without any amount in their pocket as no minimum capital requirement has been prescribed under the act regarding the incorporation of an LLP firm.

LLP agreement is a printed stamp paper duly signed by all the partners. This agreement defines the roles, responsibilities, and duties of every partner working in the firm. Moreover, the LLP agreement also helps the firm in the process of decision-making.

One more significant advantage annexed with the concept of LLP is that there no audit requirement. However, there are two conditions in which there is an audit requirement –

  • Whenever the annual turnover of the concerned business exceeds the threshold of Rs 40 lakhs, or
  • If in case the capital contribution exceeds Rs 25 lakhs.
