  • Separate Entity-

The LLP is considered a completely separate entity. It can have a personal name and is liable for his actions.

Right to sued and be sued-

It can both sue or be sued in turn.

  • Simplicity-

There are certain people like individuals, limited liability partnerships, companies, Foreign Limited Liability Partnerships and foreign companies who can participate.

Conversion of Partnership Firm into LLP

The partnership can be converted into LLP. This is done due to the following reasons-

  • Limited Liability for PARTNERS-

This accounts to be one of the most important drawbacks. This is why most people are scared to participate in it. On the other hand in the LLP it is seen the partners to be responsible or liable for their contribution to the firm, They are not awarded individually.

  • Perpetual Existence-

There stands to be a perpetual existence of the partners. The existence of the partner is not at all dependent on other partners. There occurs a change in the partners who participate in the LLP. Therefore the conversion of the partnership is essential which helps to maintain individualism.

  • Unlimited partners-

This is another major cause of conversion. The minimum number is always fixed the participation can exceed to any level.

  • Better credit access-

Easier bank loans are provided to the partners. They are given their assets are credits equally and they get their awards for their contribution. They also have a much efficient system of management which is essential in a Limited Liability Partnership. Therefore is always preferred.

  • Potential Growth-

The amalgamation and merger of the business greatly help to unlock many business strategies. The LLP, in turn, can also easily merge with other LLP which helps in a notable amount of growth in the business profits.
