Registration of LLPs in India


Online Limited Liability Partnership Registration - A Summary


Limited Liability Partnerships (LLP) bring together the advantages of partnerships and limited liability companies. After January 2009, it began to take shape in India and was an immediate success with start ups and professional services. The purpose of the LLP was to give owners of businesses a simple, low-maintenance structure that would also benefit from limited liability.


Positive aspects of a Limited Liability Partnership

Here are the top four justifications why LLP is a popular business structure:


Liability Limitation

Only a small portion of the debt accumulated by an LLP's members is their responsibility. Personal assets held by the partners will not be considered in the event of bankruptcy. The personal assets of directors and partners will, however, are confiscated in the case of proprietorships and partnerships if the company fails.


Distinct legal entity

The partners who make up an LLP are not related to one another legally. It has an unbroken existence and eternal succession, meaning that even if the partners part ways, the company will continue to operate. For the firm to dissolve, the terms of dissolution must be jointly agreed upon.


Versatile Agreement

An LLP's ownership can be easily transferred as well. It is simple to add someone to an LLP as a designated partner, giving them ownership.


Good for Small Businesses


No formal audits are necessary for LLPs with capital under 25 lacs and annual revenue under 40 Lacs. This makes filing as an LLP advantageous for new and small enterprises.


Criteria for Eligibility


For LLP company registration in India, the following conditions must be satisfied:

  • To create an LLP, you need at least two partners (no upper limit)

  • A natural person must be chosen to represent a body corporate if it is a partner.

  • Each partner must agree to contribute to the shared capital, and the LLP must have authorised capital of at least Rs. 1 lakh.

  •  At least one chosen partner must be an Indian citizen..


Required Documents for LLP Registration


When registering the business, you must comply with the following LLP registration requirements.

The following documentation is required from the partners:

  • A PAN card or passport (foreign nationals or NRIs)

  • Aadhaar cards, voter identification cards, passports, and licences

  • Recent bank statements, phone bills, mobile phone bills, energy bills, and gas bills

  • A passport-sized photo

  • Sample signature on a blank document.

Note: For the first three documents, one partner must self-attest. Foreign nationals and NRIs must have all documents apostille- or notarized- if they are currently in India or another country that is not a member of the Commonwealth (if from a commonwealth country).


Concerning the registered office:

  • Electricity bills

  • English-language lease document notarized

  • Property deed or sale deed in English with a no-objection statement from the owner (in case of owned property).


 A Guide to Online LLP Registration


Using Account Kart, you can register an LLP online. The actual registration process is complex and is described below for your understanding, even though we simplify LLP registration for you to a straightforward 3-step procedure:


Step 1: Getting DSC and DIN

The directors' DSC is necessary to complete any paperwork that must be filed online. To begin the process, two partners' DSCs and DINs must be obtained. On your behalf, we obtain the essential data from you and file it.


 Step 2: Name Approval Application

In addition, we reserve the name you want to register your LLP under while simultaneously checking if the name is available. The MCA portal allows you to lookup name availability.

Only in the event that the central government does not find the name to be undesirable will the registrar provide clearance. A trademark, body corporate, partnership firm, or LLP should not have any similarity to the name.


Step 3: LLP Agreement

The LLP agreement and other documents required for registration must be drafted in the next phase. The mutual rights and obligations of the partners as well as those between the LLP and the partners are established by the LLP agreement, which is essential in a limited liability partnership. So, when preparing this agreement, our professionals take great care.

Upon registering the LLP by submitting Form 3 online on the MCA portal, the partners formally join into the LLP agreement. Following incorporation, this process must be completed within 30 days.


Step 4: Certificate of LLP Incorporation

The relevant documentation will be delivered by our group to the registrar. Once the registrar has approved all the paperwork and documentation, you obtain your LLP incorporation certificate and are virtually ready to begin running your business.


Step 5: Open a Bank Account and Apply for Your PAN
