About the Limited Liability Partnership (LLP):
Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) firm is popular in many countries including India. The Limited liability partnership act was enacted in 2008 to give benefits to small businesses and Startups. Incorporation and the annual compliances of LLP are lesser than a private limited company. The LLP is a body corporate and incorporated under the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008 and is a separate legal entity from its partners, hence liability of the LLP is separate from it partners. Whereas, in a normal partnership firm, the liabilities of partners are unlimited. An LLP is a separate legal entity, so any change in partners does not affect the existence, rights and liabilities of LLP.
