Limited Liability Partnership

Limited Liability Partnership has been introduced in India by way of Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008. The basic idea behind the introduction of Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is to provide a form of business organization that is simple to maintain while at the same time providing limited liability to the owners. A Limited Liability Partnership combines the advantages of both the Company and Partnership into a single form of organization and one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner's misconduct or negligence. Therefore, all partners have a form of limited liability for each individual's protection within the partnership, similar to that of the shareholders of a corporation. However, unlike corporate shareholders, the partners have the right to manage the business directly. An LLP also limits the personal liability of a partner for the errors, omissions, incompetence, or negligence of the LLP's employees or other agents. LLP is one of the easiest form of business to incorporate and manage.

Advantages of LLP

Limited liability

In a General Partnership, partners are personally liable for all this debt. So if it cannot be repaid by the business, the partners would have to sell their personal possessions to do so. In an LLP, only the amount invested in starting the business would be lost; all personal property would be safe.

Easy Transferability

The ownership of a LLP can be easily transferred to another person by inducting them as a Designated Partner of the LLP. LLP is a separate legal entity separate from its Managing Partners, so by changing the Managing Partners, the ownership of the LLP can be changed.

Reduced Compliance

An LLP only requires audited annual returns to be filed if its turnover exceeds Rs. 40 lakh or capital contribution exceeds Rs. 25 lakh.
