Limited Liability Partnership in India(LLP)
Venturing into a Company of your own could also lead to unimaginable and risky consequences, so there is a need to see things from a different perspective. The LLP is a type of legal entity that was introduced in India as a Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008. This kind of firm is one in which all the partners have limited liability. It also provides an opportunity for those who want to benefit themselves by having the advantages of both ‘Company’ and ‘Partnership’, both in one firm.
