Add a Designated Partner
In the case of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), at least two individuals who are partners shall act as designated partners. These partners must have a Designated Partner Identification Number and their names must feature in the LLP partner agreement. The appointed partner can be changed or removed. These are easy to apply and the compliances are lesser when compared to other types of company registrations.
There is no maximum limit on a number of partners. There is also no restriction on joining and leaving an LLP. One can easily join or leave it. The ownership can also be transferred from one person to another without much difficulty.
