What is Limited Liability Partnership Registration ?

Earlier there were only two forms of Organisation:

  1. Limited Liability Entities (Partnership/Proprietorship)
  2. Unlimited Liability Entities(Company)

While Unlimited Liability Entities such as partnership were easy to register but they suffered the disadvantage of unlimited liability. Thus there was a need for a single entity that could combine the advantages offered by both these forms of organisations.

LLP registration is easier with post registration compliances less in comparison to a body corporate and unlike partnership where liability is unlimited LLPs limit the liability of partners to the extent of their capital contribution.
