About this Course

Businesses are typically structured and organised in different forms depending on factors like size, scalability, objectives, area of operations etc. Entrepreneurs and professionals who wish to establish their entities look for business structures that are commercially efficient, flexible and at the same time not very cumbersome on legal and regulatory compliances. One such corporate structure that is suited to such a business environment is Limited Liability Partnership. The topics covered in this course include nature and characteristics of LLP, procedure for incorporation, LLP Agreement, legal compliance for LLP, designated partners, appointment of partners, their rights and duties and cessation of LLP. The course is updated with the latest amendments to the LLP Act, brought about in 2021.
