HUF-LLP PARTNER

SECTION 5 OF THE LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP ACT, 2008 - PARTNERS - WHETHER HINDU UNDIVIDED FAMILY (HUF)/ITS KARTA CAN BECOME PARTNER/DESIGNATED PARTNER (DP) IN LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP (LLP)
GENERAL CIRCULAR NO. 13/2013 [F.NO. 1/13/2012-CL-V], DATED 29-7-2013
It has come to the notice of the Ministry that some Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs)/Kartas of such families are applying to become partner/ Designated partner (DP) in LLPs and a question has arisen whether a 'HUF' or a karta can be allowed to do so. The matter has been examined in consultation with Ministry of Law.
2. As per section 5 of LLP Act, 2008 only an individual or body corporate may be a partner in a Limited Liability Partnership. A HUF cannot be treated as a body corporate for the purposes of LLP Act, 2008. Therefore, a HUF or its karta can not become designated partner in LLP.
3. This issues with the approval of Secretary, MCA
