What are the key requirements for Annual Compliance in case of an LLP?

Regulatory compliances are crucial aspects of governing trade & commerce of a nation. For a uniform and healthy business practice throughout the nation, these compliances are enforced on all the business entities. Although operations in all types of business firms are governed by the similar set of annual compliances, every business form is legally controlled under separate laws.


Just as annual compliance of private company and public companies are regulated under Companies Act 2013, those of partnership is controlled by Partnership Act 1932, the annual compliance plan of an LLP is governed under the Limited Liability Partnership Act 2008.


What are the essential annual compliances in case of an LLP?

As per the law, an LLP has to fulfil the following annual compliance filing requirements:

  1. Preparation of financial accounts

  2. Annual return (LLP form 8)

  3. Filing of Statement of Account and Solvency (LLP form 11?)

  4. Statutory Audit by an Independent Auditor (Qualified Chartered Accountant)

  5. Income Tax Return filing & Tax Audit 


What do the different functions of annual compliances signify?

#1. Preparation of financial accounts


Every LLP is supposed to maintain proper books of account as to submit them to the Registrar of LLPs (RoL). given below are the guidelines regarding the same:

  • Preparation of Statement of Account and Solvency: 
  1. All LLPs registered under LLP Act 2008 are required to prepare a Statement of Account and Solvency, which details about the profits earned, and other financial inputs and liabilities incurred by the LLP.
  2. The Statement of Account and Solvency is prepared by filling of Form 8.
  3. The Form 8 must be prepared and submitted to the registrar within 6 months of the closure of the financial year.
  • Late fee for non-filing of Form 8: A late fee of INR 100 per day is applicable u/s 34(5) of the LLP Act 2008.
  • Penalty: In case of noncompliance, laws for a penalty are given u/s 34(5) of the LLP Act 2008. In case of failure to comply with this law, the LLP will be liable for a penalty of INR 25,000 to 5 lakh. Furthermore, every partner will have to incur a penalty @ INR 10,000 that may extend to INR 1,00,000/-.

#4. Income Tax Return filing & Tax Audit
