What is a Limited Liability Partnership?

An LLP is a hybrid business structure that includes the advantages of both a limited liability company and the flexibility of a partnership. LLP establishes itself as a separate legal entity which means that it continues to exist irrespective of change in partners and the liability of the partners is limited to their contribution. The LLP can enforce contracts and have properties in its name.


How to register a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) in India?

To incorporate an LLP is an easy process. The procedure of starting an LLP has the following steps in India:


Obtaining Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)

The LLP incorporation application has to be signed digitally by the designated partners. Therefore, all designated partners are required to obtain their respective Digital Signature Certificate (“DSC”). A DSC can be acquired from a certifying authority (CA).


Name Reservation via Login on MCA website

An application for reservation of name can be made on the MCA website. The applicant needs to click on the RUN icon. On clicking the icon, a name reservation form needs to be filled which will include the following details:

  • Entity type of the LLP.
  • Filling of LLPIN (only when an existing LLP needs to change the name and is using RUN to reserve the new name).
  • The proposed name with an auto check facility. Two names can be proposed.
  • Comment section can be filled with objects and important information like trademarks.
  • The applicant can also attach a relevant document (if any).

Incorporation of an LLP

After approval of name, an e-form “FiLLiP” must be filled for incorporation of LLP along with requisite documents. In case a designated partner does not have a DIN (Director Identification Number) or the name has not been reserved, then the same can be made through the incorporation form. A certificate of incorporation will be generated after approval of the e-form.


Filing of Limited Liability Partnership Agreement

After incorporation of LLP, the agreement of LLP must be filed in e-Form 3. The agreement contains the mutual rights and duties between the LLP and the partners. The agreement should be executed on a stamp paper and the amount of the stamp paper vary state to state.

  3. Fewer compliance costs

  4. No requirement of minimum contribution

    There is no minimum capital requirement in LLP. An LLP can be formed with the least possible capital.
