Advantages of LLP Incorporation
Process of LLP Incorporation
GST Registration is an online process. Following steps need to be followed for the purpose of GST Registration:
- Since the documents of LLP are filed online and are required to be digitally signed, the proposed designated partners need to obtain their digital signature certificates from certifying agencies.

- Application for reservation of name is required to be made to the MCA. Form LLP-RUN (Limited Liability Partnership-Reserve Unique Name) is required to be filed for reserving the name of proposed LLP which shall be processed by MCA.
- Two proposed names of the LLP can be provided in one application. Availability of a particular name can also be checked over MCA as name resembling the name of some previous organization is not approved.
- DPIN and DSC are not required for Name Reservation through RUN-LLP.
- The name is valid for a period of 3 months.
- After the LLP Name Approval Letter is issued to the proposed Partners signifying approval of name by the LLP, partners have 3 Months to file the incorporation documents and register the LLP.
- Application for online registration of LLP is required to be made online using FiLLiP (Form for incorporation of Limited Liability Partnership).
- LLP Agreement shows the mutual rights and duties among the partners and between LLP and its partners.
