    1. As per LLP Act, Financial Year means the period starting 1st of April and ending 31st March of the following year. However, since your LLP has been incorporated after 1st April, your financial year will start from the date of incorporation, i.e., 07/11/2020.

    2. Details of Designated Partners is a mandatory attachment for Form-11 even if the Designated Partners are not Directors/ Designated Partners in any other entity. You can mention “NIL” in the field where you are supposed to mention the name of LLP/Company against the DPIN or each Designated Partner.
