LLP Registration Fees: Documents Required and Advantages

What is LLP?

LLP means Limited Liability Partnership which came into known in the year of 2008 under the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008. Limited Liability Partnership is similar to the general Partnership Firm Registration. LLP Registration fees differ according to the different ca firms. CA firms fix their LLP Registration fees according to their commission system. Due to its legal structure, there is nil limited liability in the general partnership so the government of India introduced the Limited Liability Partnership on 9th January 2009.

Limited liability partnerships are different from limited partnerships in some countries. Which may allow all Limited Liability Partnership partners to have limited liability.  While in a limited partnership, one may require at least one unlimited partner and allow others to take the role of a passive and limited liability investor. As a result, the LLP is more suited for businesses in which all investors wish to take an active role in management.
