LLP is a body corporate and is required to file returns periodically with the Registrar. To ensure transparency, these returns are available to the public for inspection. The LLP Act made it mandatory for LLPs to file Annual Return and Balance Sheet every year whether the LLP do business or not. As per LLP act, date for filing returns are as given below.
Every LLP shall file an annual return in Form 11 within 60 days of closure of a financial year. The Annual Return contains details of LLP Registered office address, details of partners, details of designated partners, LLP contribution profit sharing ratio etc. So, the filing of Annual Return has to be done on or before 30th May of every year. In case of LLP with turnover of more than five crore rupees in a financial year or a contribution of more than fifty lakh rupees, the annual return shall be certified by a Company Secretary in Practice.
Every LLP has to maintain books of accounts as per double entry system of accounting and has to prepare a Statement of Accounts and Solvency (Accounts) every year ending on 31st March and shall file the same in Form 8 with the Registrar, within 30 days from the end of six months of the financial year. In case of LLPs with a turnover exceeding forty lakh rupees in any financial year or with a contribution exceeding twenty-five lakh rupees, the accounts of LLP have to be audited by a chartered accountant. For LLP, financial year means the period from the 1st of April of a year to the 31st March of the following year. So, the filing of accounts has to be done on or before 30th October of every year. In the case of an LLP that is registered on or after the 1st of October of a year, the financial year may end on the 31st march of the year following the next year. (For example, an LLP registered on 01st October 2016, the financial year can be 31st March 2017).
As per Income Tax Act, an LLP has to close its financial year as on 31st March every year and has to file the returns with Income Tax Department.
