LLP Incorporation

Limited Liability Partnership LLP is an alternate hybrid corporate business form. This new business structure was formulated in order to provide limited liabilities to the partners in the said business. LLP is a unique business form, as it provides a combination of limited liability like that of a company and the flexibility of a partnership in a single organization.

Limited Liability Partnerships have proven to be a much more flexible and efficient way to conduct a business or a firm as it allows partners to formulate the structure of their partnership with LLP as it suits them.

LLP after incorporation becomes a separate legal entity and acquires all the natural rights held by a person. It means that the LLP, like a person, can be sued or can sue; it can sign contracts, buy and sell property on its own and much more.
