Limited Liability Partnership
Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) firm is a new form of business entity established by an Act of the Parliament. LLP allows members to retain flexibility of ownership (similar to Partnership Firm) but provides a liability protection. The maximum liability of each partner in an LLP is limited to the extent of his/her investment in the firm. An LLP has its owner Permanent Account Number (PAN) and legal status. LLP also provides protection to partners for illegal or unauthorized actions taken by other partners of the LLP. A Private or Public Limited Company as well as Partnership Firms are allowed to be converted into an Limited Liability Partnership.
