Reasons to Register a Limited Liability Partnership

Legal Entity

A LLP is a legal entity and a juristic person established under the Act. Therefore, a LLP has wide legal capacity and can own property and also incur debts. However, the Partners of a LLP have no liability to the creditors of a LLP for the debts of the LLP

Uninterrupted Existence

A LLP has 'perpetual succession', that is continued or uninterrupted existence until it is legally dissolved. A LLP being a separate legal person, is unaffected by the death or other departure of any Partner. Hence, a LLP continues to be in existence irrespective of the changes in ownership.o.

Easy Transferability

The ownership of a LLP can be easily transferred to another person by inducting them as a Partner of the LLP. LLP is a separate legal entity separate from its Partners, so by changing the Partners, the ownership of the LLP can be changed.

Audit NOT Required

A LLP does not require audit if it has less than Rs. 40 lakhs of turnover and less than Rs.25 lakhs of capital contribution. Therefore, LLPs are ideal for startups and small businesses that are just starting their operations and want to have minimal regulatory compliance related formalities.

Owning Property

A LLP being an artificial judicial person, can acquire, own, enjoy and sell, property in its name. No Partner can make any claim upon the property of the LLP - so long as the LLP is a going concern.
