      An Overview on Adding a Designated Partner

      In the case of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), at least two partners must serve as designated partners. These partners must be assigned a Designated Partner Identification Number and have their names included in the LLP partner agreement. The designated partner can be replaced or withdrawn. When compared to other forms of business registrations, adding a designated partner to an LLP is simpler to implement and requires less compliances.

          How to Apply for Adding a Designated with Zolvit

          When you pick Zolvit for adding a designated partner to your LLP, we accomplish the same in three simple steps in the shortest amount of time.

          • Step 1: Obtaining DSC and DIN

            DIN and DSC must be obtained and processed before a designated partner may be enrolled. Our experts can help you obtain the same within three days.

          • Step 2: Amending the Partnership Deed

            The decision to add a designated partner will be made in a meeting according to the partnership agreement. The name of the new partner must then be added to the supplemental partnership agreement.

            Our experts will now assist you in drafting the partnership agreement. This process might take up to four days.

          • Step 3: Form - 3 and Form - 4

            Within 30 days after the appointment, the new designated partner must file Form-4. This form, along with the extra and original deeds, must be submitted. Following this, form-3, together with the partnership deed, should be filed and processed within 30 days of the appointment.

            When all of the above mentioned formalities are completed, the new designated partner's name will be added to the LLP and will be visible on the MCA's website.
