Understanding LLP Registration as a Business Structure

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a balanced structure, carrying benefits conventional partnership and still limiting personal liabilities of the partners. It is regulated as a contractual agreement between the partners under the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008.

Incorporating an LLP company has both Limited Liability features of a Private Limited Company and the flexibility of a Partnership Firm. No partner is liable on account of unauthorized actions of other partners, thus individual partners are shielded from joint liability created by another partner’s misconduct. LLP form of organization is usually preferred by Professionals, Micro and Small businesses that are family owned or closely-held.


What are the advantages of registering a business as an LLP?

Limited Liability of Partners

Because an LLP can enter into a contractual relationship in its own capacity, it offers a great advantage to the partners for limiting their personal risk. Liability of financial contribution of any partner is restricted to the capital contribution as per the LLP agreement. Many new age businesses prefer LLP registration over partnership so that their personal assets remain safe in case of loss, or even insolvency. Further, one partner is not held responsible for the actions of negligence or misconduct of any other partner.

Operational Flexibility

Separate Legal Existence

Registration of LLP creates a separate legal identity than its partners. Governed by the LLP Act 2008, it allows the business to contract with other entities, take legal action, own assets and borrow funds in the name of an LLP itself. It is a major advantage that is not available to a regular partnership firm.

Lower Compliance Requirement

A key benefit of registering an LLP over a private company is lesser compliance requirement. It doesn’t have a mandatory audit requirement until a certain level of turnover or contribution. Unlike companies, compliances related to board meetings, statutory meetings, etc. do not apply to LLPs. Professional services for compliance are typically available at cheaper rates than that for companies, making it cost effective to maintain an LLP.
