Know about change in Partners of LLP

A Limited Liability Partnership is run by its partners. From its management to the operation, the partners direct the LLP towards its goals and vision. New partners are added or existing leave; it does not affect the status of the LLP, but surely impacts the growth of the business and responsibilities of other partners. The change in partners and their details can be affected only after the approval from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.

To add or remove a partner from LLP, the consent of other partners must be obtained, which is followed by a change in the LLP Agreement and application to MCA to approve the changes. The application to MCA must be filed within 30 days of effective date of the change.
