Winding up is the process, where all the assets of the business are sold to paying off creditors and distributing surplus if any, among the owners of the business. An LLP may decide to wind up its business by two modes, either by voluntarily winding up or compulsory winding up.
In voluntary winding up partners may decide between themselves to wind up the operations of the business. In compulsory winding up an LLP may be compulsorily wound up by the order of the tribunal. There are certain circumstances for the LLP compulsory winding up. Eg. when LLP is unable to pay off its debts, where the number of partners of the limited liability partnership is reduced below two and it continues for the period of more than six months.
