A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) can prove to be a much better business vehicle than a regular partnership. Partnership firms are relatively easy to start and are prevalent among little and medium-sized businesses in the unorganized sector. However, for a larger business, it has lost its relevance with the introduction of Limited Liability Partnership due to the added advantages offered by LLP as it provides the benefit limited liability, separate legal entity & ease of ownership transfer, etc. This is the reason that the Partnership Firms are converting into Limited Liability Partnership.

LLP incorporated by the conversion of Partnership Firm to LLP must have the same partners as they were in the Partnership Firm.
