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:

  • Original LLP Agreement
  • Supplementary/changed LLP Agreement
  • The resolution passed by the partners
  • Any other documents as required by MCA.

Our Company Registration package includes the following:

  • DSC for one director and DIN for up to three directors
  • Drafting of MoA & AoA
  • Registration fees and stamp duty
  • Company Incorporation Certificate
  • Step 1 : Passing of Resolution

    The partners must meet to pass a resolution for the required changes in the LLP Agreement for according consent of all the partners & authorize a designated partner for fulfilling all the requirements of MCA for effecting change in the LLP Agreement.

  • Step 2 : Execution of supplementary/changed LLP Agreement

    A supplementary/changed LLP agreement must be entered into by way of payment of stamp duty as applicable. The same must be attached to form 3 for its approval with Registrar.

  • Step 3 : Filing of Requisite Form

    A form must be filed within 30 days of the passing of the resolution with the Registrar which is duly signed by the authorized personnel.

  • Change in LLP Agreement

    Once you submit the required form with the Registrar. Then the Registrar will verify the submitted form and the necessary changes will be made effective from the date of its approval.

Government Registrations

Have employees? You need a Professional Tax registration and Shops & Establishments Act Registration. If that's not enough, you also need to file GST Returns and Professional Tax Returns.

Legal Documentation

Mandatory Compliance

It's not enough to have started a private limited company or an LLP. You need to comply with all the requirements of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs and Income Tax Act once you do. You need to inform them of every relevant change you make, whether it is adding a director, removing a partner or increasing authorised share capital. You also need to file annual returns and maintain your accounts. In the case of a private limited company, you even need them audited. At TaxFillingIndia, we facilitate all these services completely online.
