An LLP or a Limited Liability Partnership provides the best of both worlds. As a partnership, it holds all the upper management on an equal level. All the partners have their own well-defined write-ups.


As a limited liability business entity, an LLP has the perks of a company. It’s an entity that’s separate from the partners. The partners are not wholly responsible for the LLP’s losses and it allows you to have as many members as possible.


So, what LLP registration documents are required to establish that business entity? Although, less documents are required to register an LLP as compared to partnership.

Features of LLP Incorporation

The following are the salient features of an LLP incorporation:


  1. Partners Criteria: In an LLP minimum 2 partners are required as per the section 6(1) of LLP Act, 2008. There is no limit on the maximum number of partners.
  2. The liability of partners is based on the contribution of the share capital. Every partner is responsible for their own wrongful act. No partners are responsible for each other's misconduct or negligence.
  3. There is no restriction on minimum capital requirement.
  4. LLP has perpetual succession, meaning it's a legal entity which can own, hold, dispose of property, shares, securities, etc.
  5. The annual account audits are required only if the contribution exceeds Rs. 25 lakhs and if turnover exceeds Rs. 40 lakhs.
  6. LLP can change its existence irrespective of changes in partners.
  7. The formation of an LLP required less cost. And rules and regulations are also less.
  8. An LLP must have two individual partners and one of them should be an Indian citizen.

Who Can be a Partner in LLP?

In an LLP, a partner can be a person who is not disqualified under the law or any of the following corporate bodies can become a partner.

  • Indian Company
  • Companies Incorporated Outside India
  • LLP Registered in India
  • LLP Incorporated Outside India


The following can’t be the partners because they are not included in the definition of an individual/ body corporate.

  • A person of unsound mind
  • A Minor
  • Corporation sole
  • Co-operative society
  • Trust (exceptions as mentioned in the article)
  • Partnership Firm
  • Association of person
  • Hindu Undivided Family
  • Other form of unregistered business entities

LLP Registration Documents Required

For the success of an LLP application, you need to file the right documents. As you see, I have emboldened the phrase “LLP agreement”....twice. Why is that? It’s because it is the core document for LLP incorporation. Other documents are as follows:


  • The name should be unique and doesn’t match to any existing company
  • NOC of Trademark Owner, if any
  • Copy of self-attested PAN Card, Aadhar Card as an address proof
  • Photo, E-mail ID, Mobile Number of the Applicant
  • Self-attested copy of residential proof (not older than 2 months)
  • Education Qualification
  • ID proof of partners
  • Address proof of the registered office
  • Total Contribution of LLP and the proportion of contribution by the Partners
  • Stamp paper on which the LLP agreement is to be printed
  • Proof of ownership with the NOC of the owner
  • Make sure that you self-attest all the LLP registration documents required

The Process of LLP Registration

Lastly, check the process of LLP registration below. The process is so simple but needs the help of an expert, the following are the points which are required to follow for the process of LLP registration.


  • Get the Digital Signature Certificate (DSC)
  • Apply for the Director Identification Number (DIN)
  • Get the Name Approved 
  • Register on the MCA website as a new user
  • Login and file the application for LLP registration using Form 2
  • File an LLP agreement (use Form 3) within 30 days after the LLP incorporation

Now, the LLP agreement is one of the most important LLP company registration documents. Which is important to be submitted along with the other documents which are mentioned above.
