Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Registration

LLP was launched in India via the “Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008”. The most important benefit of a “Limited Liability Partnership” is that, one partner is not liable for another partner’s misconduct or negligence. LLP is favoured by Professionals, Micro and Small businesses which are family-owned or closely-held.

Limited Liability partnership offers the benefit of “limited liability” to it’s owners and at the same time it requires very minimal maintenance. The owners of a “Private limited company” have limited liability to their creditors. And in the case of a default, banks/creditors can only sell the company’s assets and not the personal assets of the directors.

Why Should You Choose An LLP?

  • It provides “dual advantages” of both a “Company and a Partnership”.
  • No partner will be responsible for any kind of misconduct by the other partner.
  • Cheaper to incorporate than a “Private limited company”.
  • Limits the liabilities of it’s partners.

Factors to Consider While Selecting an LLP Name

The Registrar of Companies (RoC) has issued naming guidelines for LLPs. You must follow the rules closely or your application may end up getting rejected, leading to a much longer process.

Meaningful
The name of your LLP Company should be linked to your business. It must suit the company’s branding. For example, Lilliput means small, as “Lilliput” is a clothing brand for kids.
Short & Simple
The name of your LLP must be short and to the point. It must be easily pronounceable by people. And it should get registered in the minds of people, when they hear it the first time itself.
Unique Component
Name of your company should not be identical or alike in comparison to an existing company, business, or trademark. You can go to Ministry of Corporate Affairs website to verify whether your company’s name is unique or not. You must ideally avoid using the “plural version” factor while choosing a name, For example: – “Wipro’s” or changing just the letter Case or adding a space or a punctuation mark in an existing company’s name.
Blacklist
Abstracts, adjectives and generic words are denied, so a name like “XYZ” will be rejected on the spot. The following words “bank, exchange and stock exchange” will also be denied.
No same Trademarks
There should not be a certified trademark by the identical name on the “IP India” website. If there is one, then also your chosen company name can still be approved if you are able to obtain a NOC from it’s owner, which will authorize you to use the name.
Suffix
The name of your LLP Company must finish with the suffix “LLP”, as it is the requirement of a “Limited liability partnership”.
Descriptive Name
The chosen name should be descriptive, meaning that the name itself should be able to tell about a number of traits of the LLP.
Should not be illegal or offensive
While picking up an LLP name make sure that the name you have chosen, does not violate the law. It should not be abusive or against the customs and beliefs of any religion and doesn’t provide any harm to any individual’s respect.

Steps to form an LLP

Step 1: Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)
ABefore starting the process of registration, you must enrol for the DSC of the designated partners, of the proposed LLP. Applying for “DSc” is important because the registration process of LLP is done online and requires a digitally signed signature.
So, the LLP partners must get the DSC from government-approved certifying agencies.
Step 2: Application of DIN (Director Identification Number) and DPIN ( Designated Partner Identification Number)
After applying for DSC, the next step is to enroll for DPIN and DIN application, for the proposed partners of the LLP, within a timeframe of 5 to 7 working days. The application for allotment of DIN has to be made in Form DIR-3. You have to attach a scanned copy of your “Aadhaar and PAN card” to the form. The form needs to be signed by a Company Secretary, which is in full- time employment of the company or by the Managing Director, Director, or CEO of the existing company, in which the candidate shall be designated as a director.
Step 3: Name Approval and Reservation with ROC
“LLP-RUN” i.e. “Limited Liability Partnership-Reserve Unique Name” is required to register for the reservation of the proposed LLP’s name. This is further treated by the Central Registration Centre under Non-STP. But before circulating the name in the form, it is suggested that you use the free name search facility on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs portal. The system will provide you a list of similar names of the existing LLPs. “One to six” is the limit of proposed names, which are to be given to the MCA. The registrar will approve the name only if the name is not useless in the opinion of the Central Government and does not match any existing partnership firm or an LLP.
Step 4: MOA & AOA submission
Once the name is approved, one is required to draft a “Memorandum of association” and “Articles of Association”. Both MOA and AOA are to be registered with the MCA, within the agreement statement.
Step 5: Get Incorporation Certificate of LLP
The form used for incorporation is “FiLLiP” (Form for incorporation of Limited Liability Partnership), which must be registered with the Registrar, who has jurisdiction over the state, in which the registered office of the LLP is located. The form will be an integrated form. Incorporation documents can be presented to the MCA along with an application for incorporation. MCA will approve the application for incorporation within 5 to 7 days. “Incorporation certificate” is proof of the fact that the company has been formed. It also involves your CIN number.
Step 6: Appeal for PAN, TAN and Bank account
Then you are required to apply for both “PAN and TAN” and you will receive them in 7 working days. You can submit the Incorporation certificate, MOA, AOA and PAN with the bank, for opening your bank account.
Step 7: Register for LLP Agreement
An LLP agreement oversees the mutual rights and duties between the LLP and it’s partners. An LLP agreement must be registered in Form 3, which is to be filed in a span of 30 days after receiving the “Incorporation Certificate”.

Why choose LLP Registration?

  • The liability and responsibility of every partner is limited to the contribution made by each partner.
  • The cost of forming an LLP is low.
