Advantages of LLP registration in India

There are several reasons why people opt for LLP registration in India over Private Limited Company incorporation. LLPs are considered to be easier to set up and flexible form of business. Entrepreneurs find it feasible to start their organization as it is comparatively hassle-free in day-to-day operations. Here, we take a look at the various advantages of LLPs.

Low registration cost: The cost of registering an LLP in India is comparatively lower than that of incorporating a public limited company or a private limited company. You can register an LLP here through Taxology at just 6999.

No requirement for minimum contribution: As an LLP can be formed with the least possible capital, there is no minimum capital requirement in the incorporation of an LLP.

No limits on the owners of the business: An LLP requires a minimum of 2 partners but there is no such upper limit on the maximum number of partners. Whereas in a private limited company there are restrictions on having more than 200 members.

No requirement of compulsory audit: Whether the company is Public or Private irrespective of their share capital is expected to get its account audited. But here in the case of LLPs, there is no such mandatory requirement and this is considered to be one of the significant compliance benefits of forming an LLP. A Limited liability company is supposed to get its audit done only in two cases.

  1. When the contribution of LLPs exceeds over Rs. 25 lakhs.
  2. or
  3. When the annual turnover of LLPs exceeds over Rs. 40 lakhs.

Taxation aspect on LLP: LLP is liable for payment of income tax and the share of the partner is not liable to taxation. Thus, no Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) is payable. Know more

Why prefer LLP over Partnership?

The main purpose of introducing LLP in India is to introduce a form of business that provides limited liability to the owners and is comparatively easy to manage and hassle-free. It is an alternative to Partnership firms. Here, we take a look at the major differences between an LLP and a partnership firm.

Cost registration

At Taxology LLP registration can be done online at just Rs.6999, whereas Partnership registration can be done at just Rs.4499.

Limited liability

In an LLP the partners are not responsible to the creditors externally. Hence, the partners are liable to the extent of their contribution to the LLP. On the contrary, in the case of a partnership firm the partners are personally responsible to the creditors. Because of this entrepreneurs, may deny being partners in the partnership firm. In an LLP the partners enjoy limited liability protection.

The number of partners

LLP and partnership firms both must have a minimum of 2 partners. However, there is no upper limit in the number of partners in an LLP. Just in case if the number of partners reduces below 2 in a partnership firm due for any reason the firm would stand dissolved. Whereas in the case of LLPs if the number of partners reduces below 2, the sole partner can find a new partner without actually dissolving the LLP.

Central vs State Government

An LLP can shift its registered office and open a bank account anywhere in India as it is registered under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs of India.

The Registrar of firms that registers the partnership firms is controlled by the state government. Hence, it is more tedious to operate or move across India with Partnership firms.

Perpetual existence

The subsistence of LLP does not depend on its partners. The partners of the LLP can change from time to time, but that will not affect the existence, continuity, or operations of the LLP.

In the case of a Partnership firm, the resignation or death of any partner would have huge consequences and the Partnership would have to be reconstituted.


Members can be added to LLP during incorporation or post incorporation. The following persons can be partners in LLP:

  1. Individuals
  2. Limited liability partnership
  3. Companies
  4. Foreign Limited Liability partnership
  5. Foreign Companies
  6. Agreement

The LLP agreement must be executed and filed within 30 days of incorporation of an LLP. If the LLP fails to file the agreement, then there is no agreement and the First Schedule of the LLP Act will administrate the relationship between the Partners and LLP.

In case there is written agreement and no detailed declaration about any of the matters dealt with in the first schedule, such matters will be administered by the first schedule.

What makes an LLP different from a Private Limited Company?

Entrepreneurs starting a new business are always curious to know the difference between a Private Limited Company and an LLP, as both of them offer similar features. Here’s the comparison between a Private Limited Company and an LLP from an entrepreneur’s perspective for starting a new business.

Registration process: The processes for Private Limited Company registration and LLP Registration are very similar with some differences in the documents and the forms that are filed for incorporation.

Following are the steps involved for the incorporation of a Private Limited Company as well as an LLP.

  1. Obtaining the Digital signature certificates (DSC)for the proposed Directors
  2. Obtaining the Director identification number (DIN) for the proposed Directors
  3. Obtaining the approval of the name from the MCA.
  4. Filing for incorporation.
  5. Both LLP and Private Limited companies are registered with the Ministry of Corporate affairs under Central Government. The processing time for incorporation of both Private and public limited companies takes around 15-20 working days.

Cost of Registration: The LLPs have been designed to meet the needs of small businesses and hence, the incorporation fee for an LLP is comparatively cheaper than that of a Private Limited Company. LLP registration requires a lesser number of documents that need to be printed on Non-Judicial stamp paper as compared to the Private Limited Company Registration. Through Taxology a Private Company can be registered at just Rs.6999.

Features: Similar features are offered by LLP and Private Limited Company. Both being separate legal entities have assets and liabilities that are separate from that of the promoters. Even though both LLP and Private Limited companies are transferrable, a Private Limited Company offers more flexibility when it comes to transferring or even sharing ownerships. Unless closed by the promoters or by a competent authority both Private Limited Company and LLP have a perennial life.

Ownership: In LLP the partners hold the ownership as well as the powers to manage and control the LLP. Therefore, a Partner in LLP will play a very significant role as he will play the role of both owners as well as a manager. In parallel, flexibility is offered to the promoters by a Private Limited Company when it comes to ownership and ownership sharing.

Compliance: For LLP and Private Limited Company the Tax Compliances are similar. LLPs enjoy several advantages when it comes to Compliances relevant to the Ministry of Corporate affairs. An LLP doesn’t need to have its account audited if the annual turnover of the LLP is less than Rs. 40 lakh and the capital contribution doesn’t exceed Rs. 25 lakh. An LLP would however have to file LLP Form 8 and LLP form 11. On the contrary, a Private Limited Company would have to file an annual return with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs each year.

Post-Incorporation Compliances of LLPs

Along with the incorporation of LLP, we at Taxology help you to maintain the basic accounting and Compliance of your LLP at a very affordable price. The package starts from Rs.6999 per year. Following are the compliances that an LLP must follow every year.

Income tax return: Income tax return using form ITR 5 must be filed by the LLPs. Form ITR 5 can be filed online through the income tax website using the digital signatures of the designated partner.

MCA annual return: The LLP Form 11 should is due on or before the 30th of May each year. Form 11 contains the details of the number of partners, total number of partners, total contribution received by all partners, details of body corporate as partners, and summary of the partners. Along with this Form, 8 must be filed within 30 days from the end of the 6 months of the respective financial year along with some prescribed fees. Hence, LLP form 8 must be filed before the 30th of October of each financial year.

How to convert a Partnership firm into an LLP?

Registering Partnership firms do have certain drawbacks as compared to the newly introduced Limited Liability Partnerships. As the Partnership firms do not provide Limited Liability Protection for the Partners.

In the recent past, LLPs have become a prime choice for small and medium-sized business firms.

Let us take a look at the process of converting a Partnership firm into an LLP.

To commence the Partnership conversion into an LLP, Digital Signature Certificate and DPIN OR Director Identification Number (DIN) must first be obtained for all the Partners.

Following documents are required along with Form 17 :

  1. Consent of Partners for conversion into an LLP
  2. Incorporation Documents for LLP
  3. NOC from Tax Authorities
  4. Financial Statements of the Partnership firm
  5. List of all creditors along with their consent
  6. Any other document or information as requested by the authorities.

Once the mentioned documents are submitted to the Registrar after the verification, a certificate of Registration for LLP is issued.

The LLP must then inform the concerned Registrar of firms about converting a Partnership into an LLP within 15 days from the date of conversion through the prescribed forms.

What is the procedure to transfer the license and Registration?

The Licenses, approvals, permits, or registrations will not be directly transferred into an LLP. Also, suppose there are any properties registered under the Partnership firm before the conversion. In that case, the LLP must approach the concerned authorities and initiate the laid down procedure for the transfer of assets.

Hence, before converting a Partnership firm into an LLP, the Partner must clarify all the aspects.

After the conversion into an LLP, the Partnership stands dissolved, and the name of the Partnership firm is removed from the register of the Registrar of Firms. The Partnership firm is considered wholly transferred into an LLP, and the conversion does not affect any existing contracts, employments, agreement, etc.

The Partners will now enjoy Limited Liability Protection for all transactions conducted after the conversion of Partnership into an LLP. The Partners will continue to be personally liable for all the business operated as a Partnership before conversion.

Post conversion into an LLP, the newly formed LLP must include a statement that it was converted from a Partnership into an LLP in all official correspondence for not less than 12 months from the date of conversion.
