How to Change an LLP Agreement
The Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Agreement is the most important document of the LLP, similar to the Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association for a private limited company. It defines the scope and extent of the LLP's operations as well as the rights, duties, obligations of the partners. An LLP Agreement is of much importance as it carries information regarding the partners, capital contribution, profit sharing ratio, board meetings, protocols for dispute resolution, closure of the firm, etc. There may be situations that necessitate the change in LLP Agreement like a change of business activities of LLP, change in capital contribution, addition or deletion of any partner, etc.
To change the LLP Agreement, you have to pass a resolution approving the revision in the LLP Agreement. The second step is to file Form 3 with the Registrar within 30 days of the amendment in the agreement. However, in case a change in LLP agreement is due to change in partners/ designated partner, Form 4 has to be filed along with Form 3. Following documents must be attached with Form 3:
