Where a LLP was formed for carrying out any commercial activity including providing services, and where such LLP ceases to carry out any activity for a period of one year or more or from the date of incorporation or from the end of the last financial year, shall make an application to the concerned ROC for striking off the LLP from the Register of LLP.

As per Section 63 of the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008 and Rule 37 of the Striking off Name of Defunct LLP, where the LLP is not carrying any business for two or more years the Registrar suo moto will strike off the LLP.

Where the LLP has not conducted any business or is defunct for a period of one year it can voluntarily make an application in Form 24 for striking off its name from register with the consent of all the Partners. The registrar shall send a notice to the LLP and all its partners of his intention to strike off the name of the LLP and requesting them to send in their representations along with copies of relevant documents, if any within a period of one month from the date of notice.

Where the LLP is regulated under a special law, the application for removal of its name from the register shall be accompanied by approval from regulatory body constituted under that law.

If a dormant or non-functioning LLP does not respect the law, the officers of the LLP may face severe fines, penalties and punishments, including the Directors/Partners being debarred from creating other LLP. As a result, it is preferable to officially dissolve an inactive LLP in order to avoid future fines and liabilities.
