A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a partnership in which all the partners have limited liability. It therefore displays fundamentals of partnerships and corporations. One partner is not liable or responsible for misconduct or negligence of another partners in LLP. This is a main difference from that type of an unlimited partnership.

Every LLP must have at least two designated partners being individuals, at least one of them should be resident in India. Liability of partners is limited to the extent of agreed contribution in the LLP and no partner is liable for un-authorized actions of other partners, thus each individual partners are protected from joint liability created by wrongful business decisions or misconduct of another partners. LLP has lesser compliance requirements as compared to a Private limited company.


Limited Liability:  The Liability of partners is limited to the capital contribution as per LLP agreement. Partners not liable to pay losses and liability of LLP by personal assets.

Separate Legal Entity:  LLP is a separate legal person in the eyes of law and different from its partners. LLP can operate, contract and own assets and liabilities by its own name like any individual person.

Eligible for FDI:  You can get the investment from foreign countries also easily in the LLP under automatic approval route.

Eligible for startup India Recognition:  LLP can be recognized as startup and get the benefit of income tax exemption u/s 80-IAC of the income tax act.

Lower Compliance Burden:  Main benefit to form an LLP over company is less compliance burden in terms of no need of mandatory audit up to certain level of turnover or contribution and no requirement of holding of general meeting and board meetings.
