LLP Vs Company
Limited Liability Partnership (LLP):
The Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is one of the business concepts in India, introduced by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), Government of India during the year 2008. Unlike a partnership firm, a limited liability partnership have limited liability in which some or all partners will have the limited liability. It exhibits the elements of both partnership and company. In LLP, one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner's negligence or misconduct.
The limited liability partnership is a legal entity and an alternative to corporate business form. It is liable to the extent of it's total assets whereas the partners liability is limited to the extent of their capital contribution. We can say LLP is an hybrid between a company and a partnership. LLP Registration is regulated by The Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India. The governing law for the LLP is Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008.
The Private Limited Company is a well-known business concept in India. There are more than 120,000 companies registered on yearly basis. Due to its advantages such as limited liability, perpectual succession, employee attraction, director dual role, the private limited company is a favourite business structure in India. Private Limited Companies can raise venture capital funding and get external investments in Equity easily as compared to LLP. The regulative body for the Companies is The Registrar of Companies, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India and the governing law for the companies is Companies Act, 2013.
In India, the businesses are registered as Private Limited Company (PVT LTD), Limited Company (LTD) and Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) and whereas in western countries, the LLC, Inc, PJSC, GMBC companies are registered. The concept of limited liability is same but the entity is named differently.
