Naming Guide for an LLP (Limited Liability Partnership Company)

As per Companies Act, 2013 and LLP Act, 2008, it is important to choose an acceptable name for the LLP. Here are a few naming guidelines that need to be followed while deciding a name for your LLP company.

Acceptable name

An acceptable name for an LLP has three parts

  • Name part
  • Object part
  • Constitution part

Name Part

According to the Company Act, 2013 or LLP Act, 2008, the name suggested for an LLP has to be unique and acceptable. It cannot be similar to that of any existing company, LLP or trademark in the same industry or field.

Object Part

Every company must include an object part in its name which states the nature of business of the entity. The object part of the name will define the main activity of the company or LLP. For example technology, textile, hospital, motors, construction, information, pharmaceutical etc.
