Limited Liability Partnership is a form of business entity that is seen as a partnership. However, it does have the limited liability perk protecting the assets of the LLP owners. Introduced by the Limited Liability Partnership act of 2008, it is most popular form of business infrastructure after a company. In order to establish it, you need to go through LLP registration in India.
