Why LLP is more valuable than a Private Limited Company

It is easy to see that both PLC and LLP registration procedures are rather simplistic. Thus, it is not a question of ease of incorporation it comes down to deciding the direction and future of the company. We have also seen that it could be beneficial to incorporate PLCs sometimes. However, Le Intelligensia provides you with a comprehensive argument for why Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) should prefer as compared to Private Limited Companies.

  • LLPs combine the operational benefits of a company and also the flexibility of partnership companies.
  • The fee for incorporation of an LLP firm is very lower range as compared to that for private limited company
  • The Compliance requirements are very lower for LLP, compare to that for private limited company. The frequency of mandatory audits for LLP is revenue 0 if they haven’t crossed the 40 lakhs turnover mark or 25 lakh revenue contribution mark.
  • A private limited company has restricted ownership conditions and the PLC can only extend the number of owners to a maximum of 200 shareholders in a private limited company. However, there no restriction which to LLPs in India.
  • The requirements for meetings are substantially more for PLCs with the requirement of holding 4 board company meetings and 1 annual general meetings of the all partners company but is not a compulsory requirement of holding meetings.
  • The cost of incorporating and maintaining a PLC(Cost Details: INR 15000/- Incorporation + INR 15000/- Compliances + INR 15000/- Audit). So, PLC is three times higher than of LLP(INR 11,000 Incorporation + INR 4,000 Compliances). This makes LLP an economical choice.
  • PLC model not adopting startup owners and its economically hurtful & risk. Sometimes owners of a private limited company unable to pay or do not pay their compliance requirements in time, Leading to fines of up to INR 1 lakh sometimes. However, with LLPs, you can skip the hassle of fines altogether. The number of fees for compliances of LLP is very low and rarely leads up to a fine.


There more advantages of LLPs over PLCs. In light of all these advantages, it is a wise choice for early-phase startups to do the LLP registration process. While PLCs have their benefits, LLPs have been grossly underestimated to help shape a company’s foundation. LLPs have proven to be an absolute miracle for construction and mechanical related type businesses ever since the incorporation of LLPs in the LLP act, 2008.
