The Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is one of the business concepts in India, introduced by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India during the year 2008. Unlike a partnership firm, a limited liability partnership has limited liability in which some or all partners will have the limited liability. It exhibits the elements of both partnership and company. In LLP, one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner’s negligence or misconduct.
The limited liability partnership is a legal entity and an alternative to corporate business form. It is liable to the extent of it’s total assets whereas the partners liability is limited to the extent of their capital contribution. We can say LLP is an hybrid between a company and a partnership. LLP Registration is regulated by The Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India. The governing law for the LLP is Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008. The LLP registration in India is entirely online.
