Here is a useful article by Sharda Balaji, Founder, NovoJuris Services. NovoJuris is taking care of CS services for LifeMojo/iStrait.

“An LLP is indeed advantageous because of comparatively lower costs of formation, lesser compliance requirements, easy to manage and run and also easy to wind-up and dissolve, no requirement of minimum capital contributions, partners are not liable for the acts of the other partners and importantly no minimum alternate tax (as of date). But, LLP cannot raise money from the public,” stated Balaji, adding, “One other factor that is interesting is that, books of accounts have to be audited if the contribution is above Rs 25 lakh or if annual turnover is above Rs 40 lakh.”

  1. What happens if one of the 2 directors in a pvt ltd company leaves it or dies? please throw some light on this scenario and related scenarios.

  2. @Emaque As far as I know, in that case, the shareholders are liable to appoint a director as soon as possible.
    If the company functions for more than 6 months without 2 directors, it is liable for a penalty by RoC.

  3. Also the liability of the shareholders becomes unlimited from limited if the number of Directors remain below the minimum limit for more than 6 months.

    I would suggest to go for partnership firm because there would be too many accounting and other formalities in LLP / Pvt Ltd company.

    I assume that you r targeting a modest turnover and profits.
    For you, the costs of a pvt ltd company would be greater than the benefits, so don’t go for a pvt ltd company.
    So I would have suggested you to go for a normal firm.
    However, because now we have the option to form an LLP, I would strongly recommend LLP for you over a normal firm simply because the LLP restricts your liability to yr business assets.

    E.g If you open a Firm and God forbid but yr business doesn’t work, then your creditors can take even your personal assets. However if you have a LLP, then your personal assets like house, jewellery etc. are all protected in case of any loss.

    Cost of registering an LLP are quite less than that of Company. Also the Compliance requirements are lesser. But it has advantages of a Company like the limited liability and corporate entity.

    It also combines the benefits of partnership like tax advantages etc.

  8. Hi Himanshu,

    I met with you to get associated with Lifemojo at your Bannerghata office, but unfortunately due to distance from my house at Bangalore it didn’t work. Now I am planning to start a business based at Kolkata along with my sister who is giving the lead to bring in tourists from foreign countries. Based upon the response I may increase the number of people or associates who may be my friends or relatives. Can you suggest me what type of company should I form? Since I am novice in accounts suggest me the best type.


  9. Hey Ankita!
    You should go with an LLP.
    Anything less than that (like partnership firm) would not bring the credibility. Anything more than that (like a private limited company) would bring a lot of overheads.

    All the best!
