ROC Annual Compliances of LLP: An Important Guide

LLP Annual Compliances

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a business structure that combines the flexibility of a partnership and the limited liability of a corporation. It was introduced in India in 2008 under the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008.

An LLP must have at least two designated partners, who are responsible for managing the affairs of the business. Unlike a traditional partnership, the liability of partners in an LLP is limited to the amount of their capital contribution, and they are not personally liable for the debts and obligations of the LLP.

Let us help you understand the annual compliance requirements and forms applicable for an LLP.
