Limited Liability Partnership Incorporation as Per Chapter III of Limited Liability Partnership, Act 2008 And LLP Second Amendment Rules, 2018.

LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP

A Limited Liability Partnership is a body corporate formed and incorporated under this Act and is a legal entity separate from that of its partners. It shall have perpetual succession (partners may go, partners may come but the LLP continues to exist).A change in the partners of a LLP shall not affect the existence, rights or liabilities of the Limited Liability Partnership.

4. It is easy to wind up LLP as compared to Companies.
