LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIPS (LLP) CONSULTING SERVICES

The concept of limited liability partnership was introduced in order to adopt a corporate form that combines the organizational flexibility of a partnership firm with the benefit of limited liability for its partners. Some or all of the partners in a limited liability partnership have limited liability (depending on the jurisdiction). In an LLP, one partner is not responsible or liable for the misconduct or negligence of the other partners. In some countries, however, at least one partner has unlimited liability. In accordance with the LLP Agreement, the designated partners to the LLP have the right to manage their internal and external business affairs directly. Every partner has their own responsibilities and liabilities, and no partner is responsible or liable for the misconduct, negligence, or delinquent behaviour of other partners to the LLP.

LLP FEATURES:

  • An LLP is a separate legal and corporate entity from its partners. It is in a never-ending cycle.
  • It has elements of both a "corporate structure" and a "partnership firm structure."
  • Every LLP must have at least two designated partners, at least one of whom must be a resident of India, and all partners must be agents of the limited liability partnership but not of other partners.
  • An LLP agreement is not mandated, but in the absence of one, the mutual rights and liabilities of partners shall be determined in accordance with Schedule I to the LLP Act.
  • Every limited liability partnership must include the phrase "limited liability partnership" at the end of his or her name.
  • The provisions of the Partnership Act are not applicable here because it is separate legislation.

BENEFITS OF FORMING LLP:

  • The partners' liability is limited to the extent specified in the agreement at the time of its creation.
  • An LLP is a juristic person who can sue in its own name and be sued in its own name. The LLP partners are not liable to be sued for any debts owed to the LLP.
  • The cost of forming an LLP is cheaper than that of other types of legal entities.
  • The partners are not liable or responsible for the other partner's wrongdoing or negligence.
  • In comparison to a firm, the government imposes fewer restrictions and compliance requirements.
