Convert Partnership to LLP in India

A firm where two or more people share ownership of the business is a partnership firm. In a partnership firm, each partner contributes to all aspects of the business. The partners also share the profits and losses of the business. An LLP, a Limited Liability Partnership, on the other hand, is a business arrangement where all partners have limited liabilities. One partner is not responsible for the other partner’s diligence or negligence.

Therefore, for those who want to be on the safe side when doing business, it’s a good idea to convert your Partnership into a Limited Liability Partnership. By doing so, you're going to combine the partnership aspect of a firm with the Limited Liability aspect of a company.

Advantages of converting to an LLP

Advantages of converting to an LLP

  • Limited liability protection is the main advantage for which partners seek conversion from Partnership to LLP.
  • It is an interesting choice for small and medium-sized businesses as it is a great way to bring business synergies together.
  • It forms a simple working condition limiting liability to partners.
  • The existence and running of an LLP do not solely depend on either of the partners. For example, the demise of a partner in a Partnership firm may cause the company to disintegrate. In LLP, it may not cease to exist in such a case. The partners of an LLP may keep changing from time to time, and it will not affect the LLP’s continuity.
  • The liability of partners in LLP is limited to the amount of capital invested. There is no minimum limit to the amount of capital to be invested.
  • In a partnership firm, the minimum number of partners is two, and the maximum is limited to ten. However, in LLP, there is no upper limit to the number of partners.
  • LLPs can be merged with other LLPs, unlike Partnerships.
