Convert Any Company Into LLP

convert company into llp

Limited Liability Partnership is a form of business that is a good option for the small and medium type of organization. The cost of LLP registration and its compliances are less than the company. It gives benefits to small business because it has the quality of both the partnership firm and the Private Limited company. LLP has its own identity which is different from its partners, the LLP can own the property in its name as well as it can apply for a trademark on its name. In the LLP the liability of the partners is limited just like shareholders have in the private limited company. LLP is always a better option for small entrepreneurs if they are planning to start their business as a partnership firm because it is a partnership firm that gives the benefits of the firm as well as the company.
