Having a business partner means spreading the risk, using individual skills and expertise and creating a division of labour.

Business partners must behave in accordance with the rules and regulations of their respective jurisdiction.
A Limited Liability Company (LLP) is an alternative company that offers partners the benefits of limited liability at lower compliance costs. LLP is a hybrid company / partnership and the liability of each partner is limited to the amount they put into the business. Professional micro and small enterprises, which are family owned and closely linked to an LLP, are preferred for LLP.
A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a partnership in which each partner has a limited liability depending on their jurisdiction. LLP is taxed as a partnership and may therefore contain elements of partnership companies. An LLP has an open-ended succession and the LLP has no shareholders or directors and is subject to the same tax rules as any other company or partnership.
Jointly and severally liable
The partners are jointly and severally liable and not for any misconduct or negligence on the part of one of the partners. Limited partnerships differ from partnership partnerships in countries where each partner can have a limited partnership in that they require at least one limited partner and enable others to play the role of passive limited partners, but an LLP is more appropriate in a country where the investor wants to play an active management role. LLP in India, where he or she is responsible for the shares and management and not vice versa.
LPs are better suited in a country where the investor wants to play an active management role. The LLP law was enacted in India to promote the development of an internationally competitive company and its business model.

We need a specific vehicle that combines all the characteristics of business units in a partnership without competing or weakening what is already regulated by professionals.
Separate legal entity
The LLP is a separate legal entity, which means that it can sue, sue and be sued on its own initiative, and that it can sue and sell property under its own name. There are no detailed legal or procedural requirements and there is no limit to the maximum number of partners. It is very easy to diversify and expand your activities as there are a variety of options to give your organization a degree of freedom and flexibility. The LLP has a wide range of business activities such as investment, consulting, investment banking, real estate, insurance, financial services, law, education, etc.
It waives corporation tax and wealth tax imposed on other companies, but may be made fully liable in certain cases. All shareholders who receive income from the LLP must adjust their tax obligations individually.
All property rights are transferable only with the consent of the partners of LLP. All cash and assets paid by the Partners are expressly stated in the LLP contract and returned to the Continuing Partners. The partnership is required to appoint a designated General Partner who is responsible for compliance with all laws and is liable for any violations or penalties committed by LLP in violation of those penalties.
Limited Liability Partnership has absolved itself of any responsibility for auditing errors that adversely affect the company. The Partnership does not have access to public funds, which means that it relies on the contributions of its partners to function.
Income tax purposes
The limited liability company is treated as a partnership for income tax purposes, and the corresponding provision on the taxation of partnerships has been amended accordingly. The income of the LLP is taxed at the same rate as the income of the company itself, but the share of profits in the hands of the partners is tax-free. Partner remuneration is taxable as income for a company within the profession, and income outside the LLP must be taxed under the Income Tax Act 1961.
With regard to the taxation of services, the LLP is also treated only as a partnership and there is no concept of off-the-book profits. The conversion of the partnership into an LLP has no tax effect, provided that the prescribed maximum rate of income tax (5.5%) is respected and the shares of profits held by the partners are exempt from taxation.
With regard to the taxation of services, the LLP is also treated only as a partner company, and book profits are calculated on the basis of total adjusted income. There is no tax rate on the book profit And it is subject to a maximum rate of 5.5% income tax and a minimum rate of 10% on the company’s profits. With regard to the taxation of services, there is a tax rate on book profit which applies only to services and not to other business activities.
The Anti-monopoly Office has also clarified that LLP is treated as a public corporation within the meaning of the Companies Act and that its auditors are therefore allowed to carry out statutory audits. Partnerships and limited partnerships are recognised as legal forms in the manufacturing industry.
