Limited Liability Partnership

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), introduced only in 2008, has quickly become a popular legal structure for businesses. As its name suggests, the liability of its partners is limited unlike the partnership firm along with the requirement of minimal maintenance. So, in case of any default, assets in the name of LLP are liable & not the personal assets of the directors. A Limited Liability Partnership combines the advantages of both the Company and Partnership into a single form of organization and one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner's misconduct or negligence.

As per company law, a Private Limited company is a limited liability company with a minimum of two and a maximum of 200 members. Although Private limited company has limited liability and a separate legal entity, at the same time it has all the advantages of partnership namely flexibility, the greater capital combination of different and diversified abilities, etc. Before opting for a private limited company, one must keep in mind:

• That Private limited company’s shares are not listed on stock exchanges & hence, cannot be freely traded.
• That the scope is limited due to restrictions in several shareholders but enjoys fewer legal restrictions.
• That the word “Pvt. Ltd.” must be suffixed in the name.
• That at least one designated partner should be an Indian Citizen.
