LLP Form 11 Annual Return

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) registered in India under the LLP Act, 2008 must mandatorily file LLP Form 11 Annual Return each year. Filing of LLP Form 11 is a mandatory annual compliance for all LLPs, irrespective of turnover or profit or business activity. Hence, even a LLP that has no activity must file LLP form 11 or pay a penalty of Rs.100 per day of delay in filing Form 11. In this article, we look at how to file LLP Form 11 annual return.

LLP Form 11 – Annual Return

LLP Form 11 is Annual Return of Limited Liability Partnership (LLP). The return must be e-filed each year with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs to maintain compliance and avoid penalty. LLP annual return must be filed electronically and taken on record. It is important to ensure that all the information filed in the Form is correct as there is no provision for resubmission of LLP Form 11 Annual Return.

Filing of LLP Form 11 will not be allowed in case there is any eForm 4 (Notice of appointment, cessation and change in designation of a designated partner or partner) pending for payment of fee or any eForm 4 is under processing with the MCA. Therefore, it is important to file any eForm 4 well ahead of the time of due date for LLP Annual Return.

LLP Form 11 Due Date

LLP Form 11 is due within 60 days of financial year end. Since, all LLPs have 31st March as the closure of financial year, LLP Annual Return Form 11 is due on the 31st of May of each year.

LLP Form 11 Late Filing Penalty

If LLP Form 11 Annual Return is not filed on or before the due date of 31st May, then a penalty of Rs.100 per day until the non-compliance continues will be applicable. As there is no cap on the penalty, the amount would increase over time. Hence, it is important to file the on time to avoid heavy penalty.
