Convert Private Limited Company to LLP

Convert to more simple business structure leaving behind complex business compliances

Conversion of a private company to LLP

LLP structure offers the benefits of both – a partnership and a company. Therefore, by converting the company to LLP, the business gains more operational flexibility. The characteristics of being a separate legal entity and limited liability remain the same. Further, the operations and management come directly in hands of the LLP partner(s) unlike in Private Company where it is with the director(s).

LLP is governed by the LLP Agreement executed by the Partners. It has lesser compliance requirements and it is easier to operate. It preserves the benefits of a partnership with providing security and credibility to a company. The conversion of Private limited to LLP must be followed by the approval of the Ministry by the online application providing necessary documents.

Benefits of converting Pvt. Ltd Company to LLP

Less Statutory Compliance
The compliances to be fulfilled are less as compared to a Private Limited Company. An LLP is not required to maintain statutory records & registers. The requirement of a statutory audit is also relaxed in case of LLP.
Operational Flexibility
The partners are directly associated with the day-to-day operations and management of LLP. Unlike a company, LLP is governed through the LLP Agreement which is executed mutually by the partners.
Rewards and returns to partners
The partners of the LLP receives multiple returns, such as remuneration, the share of profit and also the interest on capital. The remuneration is paid for active participation by partners, whereas the share of profit is part of profit generated from business activities.
