How to close a LLP

There are two ways in which a LLP can be closed:-

I. LLP can be declared as Defunct:- If any LLP is not carrying out any business operations for one year or more, it can make an application to the Registrar in Form-24 and declare that the LLP is defunct and request to remove the name of the LLP from it's register of LLP's. Similarly, registrar also has the power to strike-off any defunct LLP after satisfying himself with a reasonable cause and need of striking-off. In this case, the Registrar needs to send a notice to the LLP and request for representation by the LLP within 1 month. Then the registrar needs to publish on its website for the general public, the notice or the content of the application made by the LLP for another 1 month. If no reply is received from anybody within the prescribed period, then the registrar may strike-off the name of the LLP.

II. Winding-up of LLP:- Winding-up is a process where all the assets of the business are disposed off to meet the liabilities, and surplus if any, is distributed among the existing partners of the LLP.
