The Partnership Firm is presumed to be dissolved once the LLP is formed and the Partnership Firm is converted. Furthermore, when a partnership is converted to an LLP, all of the assets, firm’s properties, rights, interests, privileges, duties, and liabilities are transferred to the LLP.

Any permissions, license, or permission granted to the Partnership Firm under any written legislation will not be immediately transferred to the LLP. As a result, new licenses or registrations may be needed. It is vital to evaluate the aspect of converting a partnership into an LLP before beginning the conversion process.
