Scottish Limited Partnerships (LP)

20.11.2013
With the assistance of partners from the UK law firm INLAT PLUS offers a new service – business formation in Scotland.
What is a limited partnership?
 
A Scottish Limited Partnership (LP) must consist of two or more partners (physical persons or legal entities). Unlike a general partnership in which all partners are jointly liable for all the partnership debts a LP has two types of partner:
  • general partners who are liable for the debts and obligations of the LP; and
  • limited partners whose liability is limited to the extent of their capital contributions.
A limited partnership must have at least one general partner and one limited partner. In order to benefit from limited liability a limited partner cannot take part in or interfere in management of the limited partnership. Management functions are exclusively allocated to the general partner.
 
Advantages of the LP:
  • By having non-resident partners, the profits of the LP are not liable to UK taxes. In this case the LP only needs to file a nil tax return;
  • Tax transparency: this means that the LP is taxed as if it is not a separate legal entity. No tax is payable by the LP itself. Instead, the UK tax authorities (and other foreign tax jurisdictions) look through the partnership structure and partners are taxed on their share of partnership income and gains arrived at in accordance with their profit-sharing ratios;
  • Limited management participation: the legal requirement that limited partners may not participate in management makes LPs ideal for multi-party investor structures where management and control rests with the general partner or manager appointed by the general partner.
