An LLP is required to file certain mandatory returns whether it does the business or not. Non- filing of due returns will attract penalties and prosecution under the LLP Act and the designated partners are liable to face the same action. Cessation of operation cannot be a reason for non-filing of returns; an LLP continues to exist until its formal closure. An LLP being a separate legal entity registered under law, it is mandatory to be closed as stipulated under the LLP Act.
