Have you not filed LLP Form 11 for the financial year 2018 yet? Well, hurry up and file it with ROC before you miss the window of last date! Every LLP registered in India is required to file form 11 within 60 days from the closure of the financial year i.e before 30th May every year.
If filed within time then the fee is very minimal but if delay of even one day takes place; then the penalty meter starts ticking!
Let’s take an example:
If XYZ Services LLP incorporated on 16/06/2017 (FY 2017-18) is having capital Contribution of Rs. 1 Lakh, then it will incur following filing fees on given dates:
1. Filed on 30/05/2018: Rs.50
2. Filed on 30/06/2018:Rs.50 + Rs.3,000 (Additional Fee for Delay of 30 Days)
3. Filed on 30/10/2018:Rs.50 + Rs.15,200 (Additional Fee for Delay of 152 Days)
4. Filed on 30/03/2019:Rs.50 + Rs. 30,300 (Additional Fee for Delay of 303 Days)
And the penalties will keep on increasing until default is made good……….
A little relief to Businessmen who wants to close there LLP: Now file Due Annual Filing ONLY until the financial year in which LLP was last operational! Haven’t started your business after LLP Formation ? Then, close your LLP without having to file any pending returns!
