    OPC vs Sole Proprietorship



    What is LLP Annual Filing?

    All the Limited liability partnership firms that are officially registered under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs must file the Annual Returns and Statement of Accounts annually, and that is known as the LLP annual filing.

    What are the mandatory compliances of LLP?

    The mandatory compliances of LLP include the Annual Return for LLP (Form 11), Financial Statements of the LLP (Form 8), and the Income Tax Returns Filings.

    What if I have not undertaken any business during the year? Do I still need to file returns?

    Yes, it is compulsory for all LLPs to file their Annual Returns and financial statements, irrespective of whether the business operates during that year or not. Moreover, the LLP annual filing should be done even for NIL returns.

    What is the Audit Requirement for LLP?

    As per the Audit under LLP Act, an LLP must get its audit accounted from a practicing Chartered Accountant when its annual turnover (during any financial year) exceeds INR 40 lakhs or even if its contribution exceeds over INR 25 lakhs.

    What is the due date for filing of Statement of Accounts and LLP return filing?

    The LLPs must file their Annual Return in Form 11 to the Registrar, within the 60 days of the closure of the financial year; which means, the Annual Returns are to be filed on or before 30th May every year. It is given that at least two Designated Partners of the company should file with the Registrar, 30 days after completion of 6 months of the Financial Year. So, 30th October will be the final date to file the Statement of Accounts, i.e. Form-8.

    What are the Income Tax Compliances of LLP?

    An LLP should file its income tax return annually as it is a separate legal entity. Hence, along with its partners, the income tax returns should be filed by the LLP before the specified due date, ie before 31st of July.

    Whether Annual Filing is necessary for the LLPs?

    Yes, LLP Annual filing is highly essential to be undertaken on or before 31st March every year, right from the day of its incorporation, irrespective of its turnover rate and transactions processed.

    Whether the Audit of Financial Statements is required for LLP RoC filing?

    Yes, in case the LLP’s turnover exceeds INR 40 lakhs or if the overall contribution from its partners is more than INR 25 lakhs. If the LLP does not fall under either of the criteria mentioned, then the statements with the signature of partners are adequate.

    When does the first Financial Year of the LLP end?

    Generally stating, the first financial year for any LLP depends on its date and month of incorporation. However, the financial statements for every LLP needs to be filed on or before 31st March. Suppose if an LLP has been incorporated between 1st April and 30th September the financial year would be next March. If the incorporation date falls between 1st October and 31st March, then the final date of its first financial year would be 31st March of the next calendar year.
