Can any one guide me what will be the stamp duty payable on the LLP Agreement. 
I was in impression that its same as per Partnership Agreement, so whatever we pay in case of partnership, we pay on LLP also.
But a senior CS told me that there is no separate entry for LLP Agreement in the stamp act, hence no specific stamp duty.
Please give your valuable guidance and experience.

Dear Viral,


LLP Agreement shall also be liable for stamp duty as per the Stamp Duty laws prescribed by the related State Government, where the said agreement will be executed.


Till the time the Stamp duty statutes of different states recognises the LLP agreement, the stamp duty payable on partnership deed therein, shall be payable on the LLP agreement.


Thus, your contention is correct.

for llp agreement stamp duty is 1% of the partners contribution maximum upto 5000


Yes, I agree with what Mr Veeral has said. As there is no specific entry for an LLP agreement in stamp law, stamp duty on LLP agreement is payable as prescribed by the respective state on partnership deed.


Stamp duty on LLP agreement is 1% on the member's contribution


In case, there is an indemnity clause in LLP agreement there is additional stamp duty of Rs. 200/-

(there is no specific mention in the stamp act about LLP agreement)
