A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a type of business in which the partner’s personal liability is restricted to a certain extent. LLP has a different legal status. Each partner is shielded from their own personal liability, as well as the joint liability that may arise as a result of one partner’s improper conduct or poor judgment in the conduct of business. The Limited Liability Partnership Act of 2008 stipulates the requirements for LLP registration, one of which is the submission of a separate LLP agreement. Registration with the ROC is obligatory for limited liability partnerships (LLPs).
The primary document that governs a limited liability partnership (LLP) is called the LLP agreement. The LLP agreement governs the manner in which an LLP conducts its business. Each of the partners is responsible for adhering to each and every rule and regulation that is outlined in the contract. Once the company has been incorporated, the partners retain the right to modify the agreement at any time through mutual consent. The LLP agreement is a private document that is not made available to the general public. In the event that the agreement is modified in any way, obtaining consent from each of the designated partners is required.
The Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Agreement is often referred to as the charter of the Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). The LLP agreement lays out the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of the designated partners in the firm, as well as the scope and magnitude of the actions that the LLP is permitted to take. It is not difficult to make changes to or modify the LLP agreement. The only thing that needs to be done is to pass a required resolution approving the change in the LLP Agreement. The next step is to submit Form 3 to the Registrar of Companies within a period of thirty days following the execution of such an amendment to the agreement.
It is simple to establish and run a business like an entrepreneur. LLP agreements are tailored to meet the needs of the partners involved. Compared to other Private Limited Companies, there are fewer formalities regarding legal compilation, annual meetings, and resolution.
Partners in an LLP can range from two to many. In an LLP, the number of partners is unlimited. A LLP must have at least two partners, but there is no upper limit on the number of partners, in contrast to a private company, which cannot have more than 200 members.

LLPs are not required to conduct an audit. Any other business (public or private) is required to have its accounts audited by the accounting firm. In the following scenario, LLP must conduct an audit of their accounts:
LLPs are required to submit only two statements, namely the Annual Return & Statement of Accounts and the Statement of Solvency. In the case of a private company, at least eight to ten regulatory formalities and compliances must be fulfilled.
LLP is not required to pay tax on its partner’s income or share. Accordingly, no dividend distribution tax is due under section 40. (b). Bonuses, commissions, and remuneration, as well as interest paid to partners and any salary, are allowed as deductions.
LLCs, or limited liability partnerships, are a type of business entity with a single shareholder level. The corporation is solely liable for all company liabilities, while the liability of individual shareholders is limited to their capital investment. The primary benefit is that it allows individuals with minimal investment capital to launch businesses. Since the LLC is treated as a disregarded entity for tax purposes, it is also beneficial for those who wish to evade taxes.

By amending or modifying the active LLP agreement with the necessary modifications, the partners’ rights will continue to be protected.
