Convert Partnership to Limited Liability Partnership
A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) can prove to be a much better business vehicle than a regular partnership. Partnership firms are relatively easy to start and are prevalent among little and medium-sized businesses in the unorganized sector. However, for a larger business, it has lost its relevance with the introduction of Limited Liability Partnership due to the added advantages offered by LLP as it provides the benefit limited liability, separate legal entity & ease of ownership transfer, etc. This is the reason that the Partnership Firms are converting into Limited Liability Partnership.
Therefore the Partnership Firm which wants to convert itself to LLP must be registered under the Indian Partnership Act, 1932. Unregistered Partnership Firm can’t be converted to LLP. LLP incorporated by the conversion of Partnership Firm to LLP must have the same partners as they were in the Partnership Firm. Therefore it is suggested that the Partnership Firm should retire all the Partners who do not wish to be a part of LLP and if new partners are to be added, they should be added after the incorporation of LLP. Legal Suvidha Providers will help you convert Partnership firm to LLP easily. Following are some pre-requisites which should be kept in mind before converting partnership into LLP:
• ITR filing to date. • Consideration to partners only by way of allotment of shares. • Unsecured creditor’s consent regarding conversion. • Minimum 2 partners. • At least 1 designated partner shall be Indian Resident. • DPIN & DSC of all partners. • Contribution from each partner.
However, it is to be noted that licenses, registrations, properties, etc. issued in the name of the partnership will not get transferred at the time of conversion into LLP. After conversion partnership shall be deemed to be dissolved.

SEPERATE LEGAL ENTITY
A LLP is a legal entity and a juristic person established under the Act. Therefore an LLP form of organization has a wide legal capacity and can own property and also incur debts. The Partners of an LLP have no liability to the creditors of an LLP for such debts.
A LLP has 'perpetual succession', that is continued or uninterrupted existence until it is legally dissolved. An LLP, being a separate legal person, is unaffected by the death or other departure of any Partner but continues to be in existence irrespective of the changes in Partnership.
The ownership of an LLP can be easily transferred to another person by inducting them as a Designated Partner of the LLP. LLP is a separate legal entity separate from its Managing Partners, so by changing the Managing Partners, the ownership of the LLP can be changed.
Since, LLP is a separate legal entity from its partners, it can own property in its name. So, no partner can claim any right over that property.
No. For any licenses, permits, registrations, properties, approvals, etc., belonging to prior Partnership Company, the newly formed LLP must follow the required procedures with concerned authorities to transfer the assets.
