Even the strongest relationships can suffer in times of adversity. Good planning is an essential part of creating a successful business partnership. Our guides provide information on important aspects of your partnership, such as setting up a formal agreement and planning for the unexpected. It is essential to seek our advice with regard to partnerships matters.
Limited liability partnerships
An LLP is a form of separate legal business entity that gives the benefits of limited liability but allows its members the flexibility of organising their internal structure as a traditional partnership. They are intended for businesses which carry on a trade or profession, and are particularly attractive to larger professional partnerships.
The tax system for partnerships
If you form a partnership, you must register it separately with HMRC even if the partners have previously been self-employed. If the partners are new to business, they must also register individually. Registration for both partnerships and individual partners is now done online through the HMRC website.
