An Overview of Change in LLP Agreement

LLP (Limited Liability Partnership) is a Company where all partners have limited liabilities. Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) has a different legal status. Each partner is protected from their liability; also protected by the joint liability created by the other partner's wrong business decision or misconduct. Registration of LLP in India is ruled under the LLP Act, 2008, and a separate LLP Agreement has to be filed. Limited Liability Partnerships are required to be registered with the Registrar of Companies.

The existence of a Limited Liability Partnership doesn't solely depend on either of the partners. For instance, the demise of a Partner in Partnership Company may cause the Company to disintegrate, whereas, in Limited Liability Partnership, it may not cease to exist in such a case. The partners of LLP may keep changing from time to time & it will not affect the continuity of LLP.

The LLP Agreement is a common legal document that controls the Limited Liability Partnership and its overall operations. The partners must follow the terms of the Agreement & not violate any of them. By having a mutual agreement from the partners, the LLP Agreement can be changed at any time after the Registration. Changes in capital, activities, responsibilities & rights are among the most common reasons for Change. A complementary agreement is generally incorporated additionally with the actual Agreement to change the clauses. We at Corpbiz provide end-to-end solutions for filing Changes in LLP Agreements. Corpbiz is a legal consultancy firm providing comprehensive services concerning Changes in LLP Agreements.
