LLP Registration in India - Online Procedure, Documents Required, Cost

Updated on May 13, 2024 01:26:54 PM

The LLP full form is a Limited Liability Partnership. LLP is a newer form of business in India with limited liability benefits of a private limited company and the flexibility of a partnership firm. The concept of the LLP was introduced in India in 2008 and is regulated by the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008.

The maintenance cost and compliances are less in LLP; hence, it has become a preferred form of business organization among entrepreneurs. This form of business structure is ideal for small and medium-sized businesses.

It is easy to start and manage a Limited Liability Partnership in India. A minimum of two partners are required to register an LLP, and there is no upper limit. The LLP Agreement governs the rights and duties of the designated partners. They are directly responsible for the compliances and all the provisions specified in the LLP agreement.

Benefits of LLP Registration

Benefits of LLP (Limited Liability partnership) registration

    An LLP is a separate legal entity from its partners. It is a major benefit that is not available for partnership firms.
  2. 2. Limited liability

    It helps in protecting the personal assets of the owners with limited liability protection.
  3. 3. Lower cost

    The cost of registering an LLP is comparatively lower than a private limited company.
  4. 4. No minimum capital required

    An LLP can be formed with the least amount of capital as there is no minimum capital requirement for forming an LLP.
  5. 5. Minimal compliances

    One of the key benefits of registering an LLP is lower compliance requirements. Mandatory criteria for annual compliances of an LLP are on the lower side as when turnover is less than 40 lakhs, LLP audit is optional.

LLP Registration process

The step-by-step procedure of LLP registration in India is as follows:

Step 1. Obtain Digital Signature Certificate

The first step of LLP registration in India is applying for the digital signature of all the designated partners of the proposed LLP. The incorporation of LLP is entirely digital; all the documents are filed online and must be digitally signed.

Designated partners whose signatures are to be affixed on the e-forms must obtain Class-3 Digital Signature Certificates from government-recognized certifying agencies.

Step 2. Application for DPIN

You have to apply for the “Designated Partner Identification Number (DPIN)” of all the designated partners or those intending to be designated partners of the proposed LLP.

Step 3. LLP name approval

LLP-RUN (Limited Liability Partnership-Reserve Unique Name) form is filed for reservation of the name of the proposed LLP. While making the name application, it is recommended that the name should not be similar, identical or phonetically similar to existing LLPs, companies, firms, and trademarks.

You can easily check for name availability using our free LLP name search tool or company name search tool. The system will provide a list of similar or closely resembling names of existing companies or LLPs based on the search criteria.

If it fulfils all the prerequisites, the proposed name of LLP is approved by the Central Registration Centre of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs if found in the ordinance.

Step 4. Incorporation of LLP

The FiLLip form has to be filed for incorporation of Limited Liability Partnership with the Registrar having jurisdiction over the state in which the registered office of the LLP is located. Details which has to be filed in the FiLLip form are:

  • Address of the registered office
  • ROC
  • Business activity code
  • Number of designated partners and partners
  • Personal details of designated partners and partners
  • Contribution of designated partners and partners
  • Certification by a practising professional (CA, CS, CMA)
  • The Registrar will register the LLP if the documents comply with the LLP Act's relevant provisions. Post-approval of the FiLLip form, Certificate of Incorporation is issued within 14 days in Form-16 from the Central Registration Centre of MCA under the letterhead of the Government of India.

Step 5. Filing of LLP agreement and Partner’s details

LLP Agreement is the most important document of an LLP that governs the mutual rights and duties of the partners; also between the LLP & its partners.

  • LLP agreement must be filed online in Form-3 on the MCA portal
  • Partner’s details must be filed in Form-4 on the MCA portal
  • The LLP agreement has to be drafted and filed under Form-3 within 30 days of the date of incorporation
  • The LLP agreement must be printed on stamp paper
