Basic Requirements to Register a LLP in India

Welcome to Vyaapar Seva Kendra, your trusted partner for all your business registration and compliance needs. In this blog, we will guide you through the fundamental requirements for registering a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) in India. LLP is a popular choice among entrepreneurs due to its flexibility and limited liability features. Understanding the basic requirements is essential to initiate the registration process seamlessly.

What is a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)?
A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a unique business structure that combines the benefits of both a traditional partnership and a private limited company. In an LLP, partners have limited liability, which means their personal assets are protected in case of business debts or liabilities. LLPs are ideal for small and medium-sized enterprises, startups, and professional services firms.

Basic Requirements for LLP Registration

  1. Minimum Partners:
    To register an LLP, you need a minimum of two designated partners. At least one of these designated partners must be an Indian resident. While there’s no upper limit on the number of partners, it’s important to choose partners carefully, considering their roles and responsibilities within the LLP.
  2. Unique Name:
    Selecting a unique and distinct name for your LLP is crucial. The name should not resemble or be identical to the name of an existing LLP or company. You can check the name availability on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website to ensure your chosen name is not already in use.
  3. Registered Office Address:
    You must have a registered office address for the LLP within 30 days of incorporation. This address will be used for official communication. It’s essential to provide supporting documents, such as utility bills or rent agreements, as proof of the registered office’s address.
  4. DPIN and DSC:
    Designated Partners Identification Number (DPIN) and Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) are required for the partners. DPIN is obtained by applying to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, while DSC is necessary for digitally signing documents during the registration process.
  5. Partnership Deed:
    A partnership deed is a legally binding document that outlines the rights, duties, and responsibilities of the partners and how the LLP will be managed. It should be prepared and signed by all partners and notarized.
  6. Consent of Partners:
    Each partner must provide their written consent to become a partner of the LLP. This consent should be appended to the LLP registration application.
  7. LLP Agreement:
    While it’s not mandatory to register an LLP agreement with the Registrar of Companies (RoC), it’s advisable to have one. The LLP agreement contains detailed provisions related to the LLP’s operation, profit sharing, decision-making, and dispute resolution.

LLP Registration Process
Once you have fulfilled the basic requirements, you can initiate the LLP registration process, which involves the following steps:

  • Obtain DPIN and DSC: Apply for DPIN and DSC for the designated partners.
  • Name Reservation: File an application for name reservation with the MCA.
  • LLP Incorporation: Prepare and submit the LLP incorporation documents, including the LLP agreement and consent of partners, to the RoC.
  • LLP Certificate: Once the RoC approves the application, you’ll receive the Certificate of Incorporation. Your LLP is now officially registered.


Registering an LLP in India can be a straightforward process when you understand the basic requirements and follow the necessary steps. LLPs offer the advantage of limited liability while providing flexibility in management and operations, making them an attractive choice for many businesses.
