A limited liability partnership is a partnership in which some or all partners have limited liabilities. It therefore can exhibit elements of partnerships and corporations. In an LLP, each partner is not responsible or liable for another partner’s misconduct or negligence.
For a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), the returns should be filed periodically for maintaining compliance and escape heavy penalty under the law for non-compliance. A LLP has only few compliances to be followed every year which is amazingly low as compared to the compliance requirements placed on the private limited companies. However, the fines seem to be quite large. Whilst non-compliance might only charge a Private Limited company INR 1Lakh in terms of penalties, it might charge an LLP up to INR 5 lakh.
