Why to Register LLP

Separate Legal Entity

The partners in an LLP are distinct from the entity which is established under LLP Act and can sue each other for any kind of misconduct.

Uninterrupted Existence

An LLP has ‘perpetual succession’, that is continued existence until it is brought on the terms of the dissolution by mutual agreement within the partners. Partners may come and go, but an LLP goes on.

Audit not required

Entrepreneurs earning a turnover of fewer than 40 Lakhs and a capital contribution of less than 25 Lakh need not get their accounts audited .Therefore, LLP is a perfect choice for those who want to start their own venture but want to have the minimum company compliance.

Easy Transferability

The ownership of an LLP can be easily transferred to another person. All you need is to induct them as a Designated Partner of the LLP. LLP is a separate legal entity separate from its Managing Partners, so by changing the Managing Partners, the ownership of the LLP can be changed.

Owning Property

An LLP being a juristic person, can acquire, own and enjoy the property in its own name. And this is entirely distinct from its partners. During any kind of dispute between partners, no partner can claim upon the property of the LLP as long as the LLP.

Limited Liability

Unlike proprietorships and partnerships, in an LLP the liability of the members in respect of the LLP’s debts is limited. The personal assets of the directors are safe if the company goes bankrupt. So it’s entirely a win –win situation for you if you plan to step to head forward with a suffix LLP.
