LLP Registration in India - Overview

LLP is the simplest form of incorporated business type, which is aptly suitable for small businesses and service providers and professionals. The LLP offers the simplicity of the partnership firms in terms of its management and benefits of corporate structure such as Limited Liability. To start a Limited Liability Partnership, its incorporation with the Registrar of Companies is necessary under the LLP Act, 2008, and, as a result of such incorporation, the LLP receives a distinct legal identity having a unique LLP Identification Number and the Certificate of Incorporation issued to it by the ROC. Moreover, unlike a traditional partnership firm, an LLP can exist beyond the life of its partners and can be continued until perpetuity. Registering your Limited Liability Partnership can be extremely quick, easy, and simple with our services.

Before incorporating an LLP, there are certain basic requirements that have to be met. These requirements relate to the number of partners, designated partners, and name and address of the LLP. You can refer to the table below, for detailed information to prepare for the incorporation of LLP.
1. Minimum 2 Partners, No maximum Limit

An LLP is co-owned by multiple partners who mutually agree to share its profits, liabilities, and the amount of capital to be invested. To start an LLP, at least 2 partners are required. They can be individual or non-individual, Indian or foreign in origin. Once established and incorporated, an LLP can admit any number of partners as the Limited Liability Partnership Act does not prescribe a maximum limit for the same.

2. Minimum 2 and maximum 15 Designated Partners

Like a company, the partners of an LLP also do not participate in its management. Instead, to control the management, the partners appoint Designated Partners from among themselves. These Designated Partners also act as the agent of the LLP whenever required. Only individual partners or individual nominees of non-individual partners can act as Designated partners in an LLP. To start an LLP, a minimum of 2 designated partners are required. However, the maximum prescribed strength of the designated partner is 15.

3. At least one Resident Designated Partner

Out of all the Designated Partners appointed in an LLP, at least one of the designated partners must be resident in India. For the purpose of LLP incorporation, Section 7 of the Limited Liability Act, 2008, defines a resident Indian as one who has lived in India for more than 182 days in the previous financial year.

4. Unique and Valid Name of LLP

It is obvious that you cannot start an LLP without the best-suited name for it. Ideally, the name of the LLP must appropriately communicate both its brand and business activity. But that is not enough! It should be legally valid as well. For this purpose, certain guidelines are prescribed by laws like the Companies Act, Trademark Act, and the Names & Emblems Act. Briefly, these laws have barred the use of names that are identical or even similar to registered trademarks, and the names of existing companies or LLPs. Moreover, since an LLP is a privately-owned business entity, its name must not be misleading in the sense that it shows patronage of the Government.

5. A Premises for Registered Office

An LLP must have a valid office address as well. This is the address that the LLP will be incorporated with, and where all the official correspondence or communication in the name of the LLP will be addressed to. Also, at this very office, the LLP will have to maintain all its official records, registers and account books. The space or premises for the registered office can be rented or self-owned. However, it should be fully constructed, and completely lockable.

Benefits of LLP Registration in India

A Limited Liability Partnership was introduced with the primary objective of overcoming all the flaws that a traditional Partnership Firm has.

Documents Required for LLP Registration in India

Documentation is the most significant aspect of Limited Liability Partnership Registration as the approval and rejection of your entire application depends on the accuracy of their filings to the ROC. Documents required for Limited Liability Partnership Registration can be divided into two categories, namely, the documents of the partners and the documents of the Registered Office of the LLP.

LLP Registration Process in India

STEP 1 – Documentation
Adequate and accurate documentation is key to the registration of LLP. The application for LLP Registration is filed with certain supporting documents, which include the KYC documents of all the partners and the authorised designated partners, along with the documents of the Registered Office validating its address and asserting that the owner of the premises has no objection against the office of LLP being opened on his property. Also, since the application is available in digital format, it has to be signed using a digital signature. So, the DSCs of all partners must also be obtained before filing the application. All these documents must be submitted in their correct formats and must contain up-to-date information. So we advise that before you begin the LLP registration process of application, arrange for all the necessary documents to be attached with it, to avoid any hindrance in the later stages.
STEP 2 – Select & Reserve the name of the LLP
The name of your LLP should not only be practically viable but also in compliance with the necessary guidelines prescribed by laws like the Companies Act, the Trademark Act, and the Names & Emblems Act. We have briefly discussed these guidelines in the above section. By following these guidelines, once you have selected an appropriate name, you are required to reserve it for your LLP with the Registrar, CRC. For this purpose, you can either use the FiLLiP application or the RUN (Reserve Unique Name) form, both available on the MCA website. You can submit the proposed names in these applications, which will be examined by the Registrar. If found to be legally valid and available for your use, the concerned name will be reserved for your LLP. Since we are of the view that you should reserve the name of your LLP before applying for LLP incorporation, we advise you to use the RUN form.
STEP 3 – Fill Out the FiLLiP Form for LLP registration online
The application form for LLP registration, FiLLiP, can be found on the official website of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. Once you access the application, you can fill in all the details online and upload scanned, self-attested copies of all the necessary documents. Refer to the table in the above section to know what these necessary documents are. Once all the details are filled in, and all the documents are uploaded, the authorised designated partner will have to sign the application using his digital signature certificate. You can finally proceed to submit the application after paying the prescribed government fees.
STEP 4 – Issue of Certificate of Incorporation
The submitted application reaches the Registrar of Companies, an office under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. The ROC examines the application thoroughly and verifies every bit of information mentioned in the application and the documents. If any error is found, the ROC rejects the application entirely. In this case, the applicant LLP will again have to file a fresh application for registration. However, if the application is found to be free from errors, the ROC approves it and registers the LLP. As conclusive proof of such registration, the ROC will issue a Certificate of Registration in the name of the LLP. Other than the Registration Certificate, the applicant LLP receives the following documents.

Compliances of Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

Compared to companies, an LLP has an extremely low number of compliances, as prescribed under the LLP Act of 2008. However, fulfilling these compliances are not only necessary but are also required to encourage transparency, governance and protect the interests of all stakeholders, such as ROC, Partners, Designated Partners, Investors and Tax Departments. You can divide these compliances into four different categories, namely One Time Post Incorporation, annual, event-based, and regular compliances. We will discuss the one-time and annual compliances of LLP here; for detailed information about the rest, you can talk to our expert startup advisors.

Unlike a company, a Limited Liability Partnership has just one compliance with fulfilling immediately after its incorporation, that is the filing of the LLP Agreement to the ROC.
Filing of the LLP Agreement:
The LLP Agreement is the constitutional document of an LLP, which contains all the terms and conditions mutually agreed upon by its partners. The document is drafted on Stamp paper, signed by all the partners of the LLP, stamped and notarised by a public notary. The Agreement is not required to be submitted to the ROC during incorporation. However, within 30 days from the incorporation date, the LLP Agreement must be filed to the ROC in e-Form 3.


Among the annual compliances that an LLP has to fulfil every financial year are the filing of its annual returns to the ROC, income tax returns to the IT Department, Financial Statement & Statement of Solvency to the ROC.
S.No Compliances Due Dates
ROC Annual Returns (Form 11)

Financial Statements (Form 8)
The Financial Statements of a particular year will be filed on or before 30th October of the next financial year. The financial statements will have to be audited by a practising Chartered Accountant only for financial years in which the annual turnover exceeds Rs.40 lakhs or the capital contribution exceeds Rs.25 lakhs.

How to Close an LLP?

An LLP is a creation of law and hence can be closed under the same that created it, i.e. the Limited Liability Partnership Act of 2008. But before you proceed with closure of your LLP, you must first determine whether it is functional or defunct/inactive. Based on this status, you will be able to choose the method by which you can close your LLP. Read this blog to know how to Strike Off an Inactive LLP.
Closing a defunct LLP (Striking-off by ROC) Closing a functional LLP (Winding-up by NCLT)
    To close up an LLP which has been inactive for the past one year, an application can be filed to the Registrar of Companies in form 24. Along with the application, all partners will have to submit affidavits declaring the inactivity of the LLP, and indemnity bonds accepting their responsibility to pay off all dues arising after the LLP has been struck-off. Before filing Form 24, make sure that the LLP has
  • Not conducted any significant business transactions in the last 1 financial year
  • Has Nil. assets and liabilities
  • Has closed its current bank account
An LLP is considered “active”, if it is actively conducting business activities, carrying out business transactions, and has assets and liabilities. While striking-off by ROC is applicable only to defunct LLPs, an active or functional LLP is closed by a rather more complicated process of winding-up by NCLT. For this, an appeal is made to the NCLT, and only after it passes an order to wind-up, the LLP can be closed off. The process is quite long, exhaustive and is challenging to complete without professional assistance. So, contact our startup advisors to avail of end-to-end services of LLP closure at the most affordable prices.
