Advantages of LLP

  • The main advantage of an LLP is that an LLP is easier to start and manage and the process has fewer formalities.

  • It has a lesser cost of registration as compared to a Company.

  • LLP is like a corporate body having its separate existence other than its partners.

  • LLP can be started with any amount of minimum capital.

  • The partners would have limited liability to their agreed contribution in the LLP.

  • No requirement of compulsory Audit.

  • Compared to Private Limited Company, the annual ROC compliance in LLP is lesser.

  • Owing to flexibility in its structure and operation, the LLP is a suitable vehicle for small enterprises and for investment by venture capital.

What is Form 5 LLP (Limited Liability Partnership)?

There may be a reason for a name change in a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), such as consent of partners, branding, merger, change in business object, and others. The Central Government could issue an order for LLP name modification under the LLP Act 2008. For the LLP name change notice, Form 5 is needed by LLP Partners. Form 5 is required to be submitted online using the DSC (Digital Signature Certificate) of the designated partner.
