Limited Liability Company

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a hybrid business entity, which combines the aspects of a partnership and a company having a separate identity from its partners. It can own properties in its own name and it alone is liable to its liabilities. Partners of LLP would have limited liability towards outside creditors to the extent of their capital contribution. The partners of LLP may keep changing according to their needs but it will not affect the continuity of LLP.

A partnership agreement is entered between partners at the time of incorporation of LLP. It contains various duties and rights mutually agreed by all partners. LLP must have at least two partners and two individuals as Designated Partners both can be same persons. One of the partners of the LLP must be an Indian Resident at the time of incorporation. Incorporation and maintenance of LLP are simpler than that of a company. There are numerous advantages of Incorporation of LLP instead of Partnership Firm. LLP can have any number of partners whereas Partnership Firm can have a maximum of 20 partners. Ordinary partnership firm does not enjoy limited liability like LLP, it’s partners have joint unlimited liability for obligations of the partnership firm. Similarly, in case of LLP one partner is not responsible for other partner’s misconduct or negligence whereas the same is not applicable with the Partnership Firm. LLP is more suitable for Professionals, Service Providers, and Small and Medium businesses.


Partnership Firm can be converted into LLP. If you are partner of any Partnership Firm and planning to form a LLP, then you have a choice of conversion of your existing partnership firm into LLP.

For business at a larger scale and easier fundraising, LLP can be converted into Private Limited Company.

Taxation of Partners of LLP

Remuneration and Interest from LLP is taxable in the hands of Partners. LLP can claim these as allowable expenditures within limit provided in Income Tax Law. Profit share from LLP is not taxable in the hands of partners.
