Convert LLP to Pvt. Ltd.

Description

“Converting Your LLP to a Private Limited Company: A Brief Overview

In India, many businesses begin their journey as a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) but eventually consider converting into a Private Limited Company to facilitate growth and enhance their prospects.

While the Limited Liability Partnership Act of 2008 does not contain provisions for LLP-to-Private Limited Company conversion, Section 366 of the Companies Act, 2013, and the Company (Authorised to Register) Rules, 2014, allow for such a transformation.

LLPs are an excellent choice for small businesses with annual sales turnover below Rs 40 lakhs and capital contributions under Rs 25 lakhs. LLPs meeting these criteria are exempt from yearly audits. In contrast, Private Limited Companies are obligated to conduct an annual financial statement audit. If an LLP’s annual turnover exceeds Rs 40 lakhs or capital contributions surpass Rs 25 lakhs, the compliance requirements for both Private Limited Companies and LLPs become nearly identical. This often prompts LLP owners to consider converting into a Private Limited Company.

This conversion can offer various benefits to businesses seeking increased growth and compliance with audit standards.”

“Why Convert an LLP to a Private Limited Company?

  1. Business Growth: LLPs choose this path to facilitate growth and expand their operations.
  2. Attracting Investors: LLPs might initially attract only limited types of investors. Conversion opens doors to foreign and equity investors, broadening investment possibilities.
  3. Equity Share Capital: Some LLPs opt for conversion to issue equity share capital within the Private Limited Company structure.
  4. Tax Benefits: Conversion can help manage capital gains taxes more effectively.
  5. Utilizing Past Losses: LLPs can carry forward unabsorbed losses and depreciation from previous years, optimizing their financial standing.
  6. Preserving Brand Identity: The desire to maintain the brand name and goodwill established as an LLP often drives the decision to convert to a Company.”

“Conditions for Changing an LLP to a Private Company:

  1. You need a minimum of two partners for the conversion to a Private Limited company.
  2. All partners should agree to the LLP’s conversion.
  3. The LLP should have completed all the necessary paperwork.
  4. An announcement about this conversion must be published in at least two newspapers, one in English and another in a local language where the registered office is located.
  5. You’ll need a No Objection Certificate from the Registrar.”

“Advantages of Converting an LLP into a Private Limited Company:

  1. Brand Continuity: Your brand identity remains intact after the conversion, eliminating the need for additional advertising efforts.
  2. Foreign Investment: A Private Limited Company allows 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), enabling foreign investors, whether individuals or entities, to invest directly in your company.
  3. Tax Benefits: You save on bookkeeping expenses as losses and depreciation incurred during the LLP phase are carried forward upon conversion.
  4. Attracting Talent: Private Limited Companies can offer stock ownership and Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs), making it easier to attract and retain talented employees through enticing incentive programs.
  5. Funding Opportunities: Private and Public Companies are better positioned to raise capital from venture capitalists and angel investors. A rigorous registration process enhances your company’s credibility, simplifying fundraising from external sources.
  6. Limited Liability: Your liability is limited to the capital you’ve subscribed and any unpaid amount. This offers personal financial protection.
  7. Tax Benefits: Private Limited Companies enjoy the advantage of no capital gains tax.
  8. Easy Transition: The conversion process involves adding ‘Pvt. Ltd.’ to the end of your existing LLP name, ensuring a seamless transition.

Converting an LLP into a Private Limited Company: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Name Approval:
  • Start by applying for ‘Name Approval’ with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) in electronic format. This ensures that your desired company name is unique and available.
  1. Securing DSC and DIN:
  • All seven directors of the new Private Limited Company must obtain a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) and Director Identification Number (DIN).
  • You can apply for DIN on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs portal. The Central Government will approve your DIN application through the regional director’s office.
  • Don’t forget to self-attest your application, including address proof and identity proof, and attach a passport-sized photo of the applicant.
  1. Filing of Form URC-1:
  • After securing name approval from the ROC, you must prepare and submit Form No. URC-1 along with all the necessary documents.
  1. Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association:
  • Once the company name is approved and the ROC reviews Form no. UGC-1, the ROC will issue Form URC-1.
  • At this stage, your company will need to draft its Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA).

Upon completing these steps, your LLP will successfully convert into a Private Limited Company. The ROC will issue a Certificate of Incorporation for your newly transformed Private Limited Company.
