This is a common suspicion that usually arises for business owners when they are ready to start a business. Here we have sorted out the major differences between Pvt. Ltd. and LLP.
We hope this blog helps you to choose the right entity.
The 9 Major Difference between Pvt Ltd and LLP
- The Pvt. Ltd. company requires at least two (2) shareholders and the maximum limit is two hundred (200) shareholders.
- For LLP companies, the minimum shareholders limit is the same as Pvt. Ltd. company (2), and there isn’t any maximum shareholders limit. You can add as many shareholders as you want.
- Pvt. Ltd. directors where LLP there are called designated partners. For both companies, the minimum number of directors/designated partners are two (2). At the same time, the maximum number of directors for Pvt. Ltd. can be fifteen (15), and there isn’t any maximum limit for LLP designated partners.
