Form a Limited Liability Partnership Company Online

The LLP is a relatively recent innovation in the business world. It is the latest type of business vehicle to be introduced after having received official Royal Assent in 2000. It can be loosely described as a hybrid between a limited liability company and a traditional self-employment partnership. It offers the limited liability available to owners of limited companies combined with the tax regime and flexibility available to partnerships.

LLP formation procedure - summary

LLPs were originally designed by professional partnerships such as accountants, lawyers and architects. They felt the need to limit their own personal liability that may have arisen out of any mistakes created by another partner. However, many other types of businesses can benefit from operating out of an LLP.

For help and advice on forming a limited liability partnership, please call us on (telephone number) or email us at (email address).

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Common Concerns

The formation of an LLP - frequently asked questions

Q
Do we need to use a draft LLP agreement?
A

There is no legal requirement to have an LLP agreement in place, particularly if profits are divided equally between members. However, many partnerships prefer to have one and we can provide you with a draft agreement that you can amend to suit the structure you have in mind.

Q
What protection do I get from running an LLP?
A

The members also enjoy some degree of protection from the liabilities of the LLP, so long as they do not act fraudulently or trade wrongfully. This level of liability is limited to the amount they have invested; they cannot lose more than this.

Q
What are the benefits of operating an LLP?
A
  • No employer's National Insurance. Members' income is not subject to this 13.8% tax
  • Significant delay in paying their personal tax as opposed to PAYE
  • Generous car and motoring benefits• No tax liability for using LLP assets for personal use.
  • No tax liability on introducing new members - unlike limited companies where there may exist a tax liability in giving away shares in the company.
  • Potential loss relief benefits, allowing members to immediately offset losses against other income, either in the same year or previous years. Limited companies must record a profit before being allowed to offset losses.
  • Paying taxes just on their share of the overall LLP profit, similar to a sole trader, and suffering no tax on remuneration drawings. HMRC has clamped down on so-called 'salaried members' with changes to the employment status of certain members of LLPs to bring them into the PAYE/NI regime and outside of self-employment.
Q
If you're involved in running an LLP, you must:
A
  • Maintain adequate accounting records
  • Be aware that the LLP has a separate legal personality, continuing to exist independently of its members
  • Prepare and submit information to Companies House for publication in the public domain
  • Submit information regarding the members' individual profit shares to the public domain once certain thresholds have been exceeded
  • Submit partnership tax returns to HMRC
  • Ensure suitable insurance is in place both for individual members and the LLP as a separate entity
Q
Disadvantages of an LLP
A

As the name suggests, an LLP is a partnership. Therefore it needs at least two partners. This raises issues of trust; if one partner falls out with the other and leaves then the LLP is dissolved unless another partner can be introduced. This is easily overcome with sleeping partners or corporate partners but it could still be considered as a potential drawback, therefore ensuring a comprehensive partnership agreement is in place is vital.

Q
Disadvantages of an LLP
A

Even though the LLP has its own separate legal identity, dealings with third parties, for example banks, may still require the members to provide their own personal guarantees, much in the same manner as these guarantees apply to directors of limited companies.

Q
Disadvantages of an LLP
A

The legal requirements to prepare and publish annual accounts add to the administrative burden. Additionally, certain profit distributions to members in high grossing LLPs will need to be disclosed on the public record, removing a certain element of privacy and confidentiality.

Q
Disadvantages of an LLP
A

These legal requirements also extend to the members who must, like limited company officers, behave and act within the confines of the law. Failure can result in prosecution and future disqualification from being a member or director in another business.
