Dear Experts, 

I read in an article that FORM 8 is not required to be filled if the LLP is registered after 1/10/2015. is it true?

My CA also says that and filed only ITR-V and FORM 11 this year for my LLP. But my LLP was registered on 1/1/2015.

Please advise if i'm in good position or need to file FORM 8 ASAP. Thanks a lot.

Dear Mukesh

Every LLP is required to file form-8 and form 11 annually. Even if LLP has no business it has to comply with the requirement.

Dear Mahesh,


In case of LLP incorporate on or after 1st October of any financial year, the LLp has the option to either close their books of Accounts on coming 31st march or next years 31st march. If you choose next year then you dont have to do the annual filing in the year of incorporation.


In your case your LLp was formed on 1/1/2015, so you if you haven't closed your books of accounts till now you can close it on 31.03.2017 and form 8 and 11 can be filed accordingly.
