Conversion of Partnership Firm to Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

After presented of Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Act in 2008 many Partnership Firms have started convert their Partnership Firm to Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). The reasons of conversion are self-evident, ability to take unlimited number of Partners, separate legal, entity Limited Liability, ease of ownership transfer etc. Because of advantages of Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) over Partnership Firm, LLP has become very popular amongst small and medium sized businesses.

The Partnership Firm which wants to convert itself to LLP must be registered under Indian Partnership Act, 1932. Unregistered Partnership Firm can’t be converted to LLP. LLP incorporated by conversion of Partnership Firm to LLP must have same partners as they were in the Partnership Firm. Therefore it is suggested that the Partnership Firm should retire all the Partners who do not wish to be a part of LLP and if new partners are to be added, they should be added after incorporation of LLP.

On Conversion, all the partners of the partnership firm might become partners of the LLP in the same proportion in which their capital accounts stood in the books of the Firm on the date of the conversion.

Advantage of Limited Liability Partnership

LLP has no authorized capital requirement (minimum of Rs. 1 lakh for a private limited company), significantly lowering the cost of setting up as compared to a Private Ltd Company

Personal assets of partners are safe; a liability of LLP is limited to the assets of LLP

Unlike in private Limited Company, no audit is required in LLP. An LLP’s accounts are required to be audited only if it has earnings greater than Rs. 40 lakhs or capital contribution of over Rs. 25 lakhs

LLP offers some important advantages over a private limited company. For example, Dividend Distribution Tax and tax surcharge are not applicable; hence fewer taxes have to be paid. Loans to partners are also not taxable

An LLP is a legal entity and a juristic person established under the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008

Guide to Conversion of Partnership Firm into LLP

More and more partnership firms are being converted into a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). LLP offers a host of features such as unlimited partners, limited liability protection, transferability, survivability, etc., – making it more attractive than a partnership firm. In this article, we look at the procedure for conversion of Partnership Firm into LLP in a step by step manner.

Digital Signature

Typically Partners in a Partnership Firm would not have a digital signature as the same is not necessary for registration of a partnership firm. However, if the Partners decide to convert the Partnership Firm into a Limited Liability Partnership, then Digital Signatures would be required for all the Partners.


Partners in a LLP or Directors in a Private Limited Company require a DIN / DPIN. A DIN is a unique number given for each person who is a LLP Partner or Director. Once, a DIN or DPIN is issued, it can be used for lifetime without any renewal or compliance filing.

Name Approval

Once, two DIN or DPIN numbers are available, application for name reservation can be made to the Ministry of Corporate Affair. Reservation of name of the LLP must first be obtained before filing the forms for conversion of the Partnership Firm into LLP.

Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.
