If you are looking to set up a business with a colleague or partner, then this option may be right for you.
The LLP combines features of both limited liability companies and traditional partnerships, in that they offer the limited liability protection available to Limited Company shareholders but with the flexible nature and tax structure available to partnerships.
Limited Liability Partnerships are available to any ‘two or more persons associated for carrying on a lawful business with a view to profit’ by incorporation with the Registrar of Companies.
Who Is It For?
Traditional professional partnerships such as solicitors, accountants or architects who have been prohibited by their professional bodies from incorporating as limited companies but require the benefits of limited liability and corporate status.
