India Union Budget 2016: Rationalization of conversion of a company into Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

Existing provisions of clause (xiiib) of Section 47 provides that conversion of a private limited or unlisted public company into Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) shall not be regarded as transfer, if certain conditions are fulfilled, which, inter alia, include a
condition that the company's gross receipts, turnover or total sales in any of the preceding three years did not exceed Rs.60 lakh.
It is proposed to amend the said section so as to provide that, for availing tax-neutral conversion, in addition to the existing conditions, the value of the total assets in the books of accounts of the company in any of the three previous years preceding the
previous year in which the conversion takes place, should not exceed five crore rupees.
These amendments are proposed to be made effective from the 1st day of April, 2017 and shall accordingly apply in relation to assessment year 2017-18 and subsequent years.
