Limited Liability Partnership Registration or LLP Registration

LLP is an alternative corporate business form that gives the benefits of limited liability of a company and the flexibility of a partnership.

The LLP is a separate legal entity, is liable to the full extent of its assets but the liability of the partners is limited to their agreed contribution in the LLP. Further, no partner is liable on account of the independent or un-authorized actions of other partners, thus individual partners are shielded from joint liability created by another partner’s wrongful business decisions or misconduct.

We at Balakrishna and Co., have the experience of incorporating Limited Liability Partnership firms in Bangalore. Generally, professionals such as Doctors, Lawyers prefer LLP over Companies.
