LLP settlement Scheme 2020

LLP settlement Scheme, 2020 – A breather for non-filers and late filers of MCA LLP Forms

Ease of Doing Business

Providing ease in doing business has always been on the agenda of the Government of India. And for this purpose the government has always tried to introduce new schemes from time to time to encourage the business owners to stick to business. To take this step ahead, The ministry of corporate affairs (MCA) has launched a one-time amnesty scheme for Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) companies that have failed to file the requisite statutory documents such as annual statements, change in directors, etc.


The move will not only promote the ease of doing business but also will cleanse the system. it provides these companies a one-time relaxation in payment of additional fees and immunity from prosecution.


Accordingly, the Central Government has decided to introduce a scheme namely “LLP Settlement Scheme, 2020”, by allowing a One-time condonation of delay in late filing statutorily required documents of LLP with the Registrar.

    Let me be honest and tell you that I did not choose eBiz filing after my initial LLP company registration did to pricing. A lot of companies contact me with better rates so I generally choose them. However, I will still rate eBiz filing 10/10 on work ethics. You guys are professionals in true sense.
