Limited Liability Partnerships enjoy the commercial benefits that come from being a body corporate and their members benefit from the protection of limited liability.
They are similar to an ordinary partnership – in that a number of individuals or limited companies share in the risk, costs, responsibilities and profits of the business.
The difference is that in a LLP the liability is limited to the amount of money they have invested in the business and to any personal guarantees they have given to raise finance. Each member is entitled to an equal share of the profits, unless the members agreement specifies otherwise.
The members pay tax and National Insurance contributions on their share of the profits. LLPs can be attractive vehicles for professional firms and other businesses, including start-ups and joint ventures.
There are no Directors in s LLP, only Designated Members. All LLPs must have at least 2 Designated members and these members will be responsible for filing statutory requirements.
