  • Partners' total contribution exceeds Rs. 50 lakhs.
  • LLP's revenue exceeds Rs. 5 crores.

If the statistics are within/below the given restrictions, the selected partner can certify the e-form.

Important Notice Regarding the Extension of the Due Date for LLP Form 11 & Other LLP Compliance Forms

  • The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has received several requests requesting an extension of the deadline for filing the LLP Annual Return in Form 11 without additional expenses. Taking into account the representations and the transition from MCA-21 Version 2 to MCA-21 Version 3 in mind, the MCA has decided to extend the deadline for filing E-Form LLP 11, i.e. Annual Return of Limited Liability Partnership for the Fiscal Year 2021-22 without paying any additional fees from May 30th to June 30th, 2022.
  • Moreover, MCA has relaxed the due dates for numerous event-based LLP E-Forms, such as LLP Form 3, which had due dates ranging from February 25th to May 31st, 2022.
  • The new extended deadline for event-based LLP E-Forms is June 30th, 2022.

Penalty for LLP Form 11 Late Filing

  • When registering an LLP, at least two persons must be registered as partners, one of whom must be a citizen and resident of India. The partners in an LLP should be responsible for keeping accurate accounting records, filing income tax returns, and submitting an annual report to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs at the end of each fiscal year (MCA). The partners in an LLP should be responsible for keeping correct accounting records, filing income tax returns, and submitting an annual report to the MCA for each fiscal year.

  • The reports should be produced yearly to ensure the continuation of the LLP, and severe penalties for noncompliance should be prohibited by legislation. A Limited Liability Company is exempt from yearly enforcement. Therefore, annual enforcement is lower than that of private limited partnerships. On the other hand, failure to comply may result in penalties of rupees one lakh for a private limited company. LLP, on the other hand, may face a punishment of Rs.5 lakh.

  • The chosen members must also keep an adequate record together and deliver an annual report in accordance with MCA periodically. A separate legal entity must create LLPs. Except in exceptional circumstances, an LLP is not required to audit the books.

  • The entire income exceeds Rs.40 lakhs.
  • when the company's earnings or expense exceeds Rs.25 lakh
  • Within 30 days of the ending of the six-month term, LLPs must file an account & solvency statement. They must also file an annual return within 60 days after the conclusion of the fiscal year.


An LLP is a corporate form with a minimum of two members and no restriction on the highest number of members. Its compliances are far less stringent than those of a Private Limited Company. Nonetheless, it is critical to maintain track of all major Statutory due dates for LLP Annual Filing, which includes ROC Filing for LLP, Income Tax Filing for LLP, and GST Filing for LLP. It is critical for an LLP to be fully prepared for all ROC as well as other Compliances that must be completed in a given Financial Year.
