First and important benefit of trading/doing business via LLP is the limited liability conferred upon the partners. As a sole proprietor or partnership business, personal assets of the proprietor or partners can be at risk in the event of a failure of the business, but this is not the case for an LLP.
Unlike proprietorship and partnership, if an LLP becomes insolvent and if wound up, only the assets of the LLP are used to clear its debts. The partners of LLP have no personal liabilities and are not made bankrupt and also they are free to operate as credible businessmen. The closure of a limited liability partnership may be either voluntary winding up or by the Tribunal.
Audit is not required unless capital exceeding Rs. 25 lakh or turnover exceeding Rs. 40 lakh.
An LLP is a legal entity, a juristic person established under the Act. It has its existence separate from its partners.
LLPs are taxed similar to general partnership firms. LLPs pay tax at 30%.
The taxation will be imposed only on 10% or 40% of the total LLP’s income, since the firm will be allowed to pay tax on the balance 90% or 60% to the partners as remuneration. This means, the partners will have to pay tax only on the amount paid to them. So, there will not be double taxation of income.
Unlike Private or Public Companies, there is no requirement for payment of Dividend distribution/Corporation Tax on distribution of income/profits among partners and also there is no requirement as to Minimum Alternate Tax.
