Limited Liability Partnership

A legal business structure is a limited liability partnership (LLP). The most significant advantage of a "Limited Liability Partnership" is that one partner is not responsible for another partner's misbehavior or carelessness. Limited Liability Partnerships provide owners with the benefit of "limited liability" while also requiring relatively little maintenance.

A limited liability partnership (LLP) is a business structure that offers its owners some liability protection and tax reductions, and other benefits. It's a frequent structure among professionals that start a practice jointly, such as doctors, attorneys, and accountants.

Compliance LLP: What You Need to Know

Registration for the GST

The GST registration is online, and the GST Department does not require any physical documentation to be presented.

GST Return

Once a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is GST registered, it is necessary to file GST returns. All registered taxpayers, including LLPs, are required to file GST returns. Depending on the sort of GST return you're filing, you can file it monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Accounting

Every LLP must keep and maintain accounting records that are sufficient to show and explain the LLP's transactions and indicate the LLP's financial situation with reasonable accuracy. The books of account must be preserved and maintained for a period of eight years at the LLP's registered office.

ROC annual filing

Every year, LLPs must file ROC Form 8 by the 30th of October. The Statement of Accounts and solvency are detailed on Form 8. LLPs must also file ROC Form 11 by the 30th of May each year. Form 11 contains information about all Designated Partners, such as if the LLP's management has changed.

Audit under IT ACT

Every Limited Liability Partnership with a turnover of more than INR 2 crore in the case of a business or INR 50 lakh in a profession is required by section 44AB of the Income-tax Act to have its books of accounts tax audited. By the 30th of September, any tax audit conducted under section 44AB must be completed and filed.

IT Returns

Regardless of its transactions, every Limited Liability Partnership is required to file annual Income Tax Returns. It must be filed by LLP by July 31st (if not covered by audit) or September 30th (if covered under audit).

Registration of Trademarks

Trademarks are required for LLPs, but they are not necessary. The LLP's name will only be protected to the extent that no other LLP will be registered under a substantially similar word. You may always register a trademark if you have an excellent brand name because it must obtain protection under several trademark classes.

Lower Registration cost

The cost of forming an LLP is significantly less than that of creating a public limited company or a private limited company. Through TaxDraw, you can register an LLP.

No Limit on owners of the business

A limited liability partnership (LLP) requires a minimum of 2 partners, but there is no limit to the number of partners. A private limited company, on the other hand, cannot have more than 200 members.

Compulsory Audits are not Required

In the case of LLPs, there is no requirement for a compulsory audit. An audit is required only when the company's turnover surpasses Rs 40 lakhs, and the contribution exceeds Rs 25 lakhs.
