What is LLP (Limited Liability Partnership Company)?
The Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is legal entity under which one can enjoy the benefit of limited liabilities and general partnership. The LLPs are governed by the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008.
It is an upgraded version of general partnership and the partners are knows as Designated Partners. In LLP partners can enjoy the benefit of limited liabilities. The registration of LLP is a very simple process and is proffered most as it has lesser compliance to follow. LLPs are most recommended for professional firms, micro and small businesses that are family-owned or closely-held.
The partners in LLP have limited liability, meaning that personal assets of the partners can’t be used for paying the debts of the company. Designated partners are liable only to the extent of their contribution in the LLP mentioned in the agreement. Even if there are number of partners, each partner is liable for their own decisions not for the other partner’s misconduct. In this way, all the partners are shielded from the joint liability.
The LLP is executed between the partners and the LLP agreement determines the mutual rights, duties, and responsibilities of the partners. The LLP agreement must be printed on stamp paper and the stamp duty to be paid on the LLP agreement is depends on the state of in which the LLP is incorporated and amount of capital contribution from the partners

As per the LLP agreement all ‘shareholders’ in an LLP must be partners, with certain responsibilities toward the entity. Investors usually want to invest only so they prefer private limited company.
Rights of partners:An LLP can be structured in such a way that one partner has more rights than another. There is no one vote per share system. This can lead to feel compromised if higher shareholders choose to move the business in a direction that affects their interests.
High penalties: compliances in A LLP are minimal, but one does not complete them, it could end up paying penalties more than a private limited company.
