  1. Hello @Shelly_Trivedi

    In order to register an LLP on Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the first step is to reserve a name for the proposed LLP. In order to reserve name, RUN-LLP needs to be filled out on MCA along with 2 proposed names of the LLP and NoC, if any required by paying a fee of Rs. 200/-

    Once the name has been approved by MCA, the name is valid for a period of 3 months within which e-Form FiLLiP needs to be filed along with documents as may be required, for incorporating the LLP. The fees of filing e-Form FiLLiP depends on the contribution of the LLP.

  2. Hey @AM_POWER

    As per the Limited Liability Partnership Act, 2008, Financial Year is defined as under:

    " financial year, in relation to a limited liability partnerships, means the period from the 1st day of April of a year to the 31st day of March of the following year:

    Provided that in the case of a limited liability partnership incorporated after the 30th day of September of a year, the financial year may end on the 31st day of March of the year next following that year;"

    Hence, an LLP incorporated in February, 2019 can opt for closing its books of accounts in March, 2021. Thus you don’t need to make the compliances for FY 2019-20, as the first financial year will be from February 2019, to March, 2021.

    Hope this helps!

  3. Hey @AM_POWER

    There was a typo in the previous post regarding the financial year.

    However, you wont be able to take the benefit of Financial Year in your case so what you can do is raise a complaint on MCA and explain that Form-3 wasnt approved. Or you can contact your local ROC for this.

    Hope this helps!

  4. Hey @AM_POWER

    For Form-8 (Section 34) and Form-11 (Section 35) of the LLP Act, 2008, specifies that if any LLP fails to file its annual return before the expiry of the periods specified, such LLP and the Designated Partners shall be liable to pay a penalty of Rs. 100/- per day, subject to maximum Rs. 100,000/-

    The above provisions are subject to any extensions that may have been provided by MCA for that financial year.

    You can check out the LLP Act, 2008 here.

    Hope this helps!
