About LLP Annual Filing

An LLP is a form of separate legal business entity that gives the benefits of limited liability but allows its members the flexibility of organizing their internal structure as a traditional partnership. It is governed by the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008. In LLP, unlike a company, the designated partner have a direct relationship between owner and management. Every year an LLP needs to comply with LLP Annual filing.


You will have the protection of a registered company; one partner will not be liable for any misconduct or negligence of another partner. LLP can operate not according to Company’s Act, 2013 but as per the LLP agreement formed at the time of its incorporation and LLP Act, 2008.
