LLP (Limited Liability Partnership)

LLP is a newly defined corporate base structure that combines features of both Company and Partnership. It is linked to company as it includes limited liability and works on partnership in defining flexible and mutual agreement among partners. As the name suggests, LLPs are limited liability oriented firms in which partners are only liable to pay only a specific amount defined in their partnership agreement after getting their partnership registered under Limited Liability Act 2008.

LLP to present entrepreneurs is becoming a top most choice to register their new companies because of its cost effective and less restricted environment, as leveraging the initial investment to zero and excluding the restriction to maximum member inclusion; it is being preferred more than a company status.

1. Minimum 2 Members: To start a business in LLP format minimum 2 members are required just like a normal partnership guided by Partnership Act 1932, while there is no such restriction on maximum number of partners.

2. Separate Legal Entity: In an LLP, all legal operations are carried out considering the LLP as a separate entity existing separately from its members which can sue or can be sued.

3. Audit Status: Audit procedure to an LLP is only refined to organizations working with an annual turnover of Rs 40 lakh or is built on a contribution of Rs 25 lakh or more to capital.

4. Individuality to Members: LLP defines some special rights to its partners highlighting that no partner in any case would be liable for any other partner causing any mis-happening or misconduct to business or business agreement giving each partner a special individuality.
