About the dormant LLP creation package
In any given period, a partnership is dormant if it does not carry out any accounting transactions, disregarding the following: -
1. The payment for membership issued on formation of the LLP;
2. The fee paid to Companies House to change the partnership's name;
3. The fee paid to Companies House on filing a confirmation statement;
4. The payment of a civil penalty for late filing of accounts.
Dormant partnerships must file the dormant accounts with Companies House and Inland Revenue. If a partnership commences trading or carries out any transaction (other than those listed above) then it will cease to be dormant and normal accounts will have to be filed.
Who is this package for?
Our dormant LLP formation package is ideal for those, who will use a dormant entity for the following purpose(s): -
1. To protect a business name, or to be the owner of the domain name(s);
2. To own an asset such as land or intellectual property;
3. To hold shares of other companies' (including business entities registered in other countries);
4. To use an entity as the management entity (property or business management purpose);
5. To use a dormant entity as the corporate director, shareholder, or as the secretary in other companies.
If your new partnership is not yet active - in other words, it is not yet carrying on business activity or trading - you will need to tell HMRC when it does become active.
Our dormant partnership set-up package ensures you meet the statutory obligations as a member of the dormant partnership with the tax authorities and all governing bodies.
