Upon an LLP formation, the LLP SAIL address stands for a single alternative inspection location. It provides an LLP with an alternative location for the storage of official documentation, which are legally defined as statutory records that can be required for inspection by the government or tax authority at any time. An LLP SAIL address must have the facilities to produce the documents within a short time period for inspection.
In the case, if an LLP does not keep registers at the registered office address, the records that should be kept at the SAIL address of an LLP include the register of members, and if it issues debentures, it should also keep a register of debenture holders. If it enters into a charge, a register of charges should also be kept at the SAIL together with the instrument that created the charge. These documents are kept at the SAIL in order to be available for public inspection.
Limited liability partnerships must make their statutory records available for inspection for at least two hours per day between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm on working days only, and they will be given around 10 days notice of an inspection.
Why might an LLP need a SAIL address? Many limited companies and LLPs use their registered address without having a SAIL address. However, a SAIL is a useful facility to have in some circumstances. For example, if a limited liability partnership's registered office address is the same as its trading address, the disruption of an inspection could be inconvenient for employees and customers. Using a SAIL address means that the inspection does not interfere with the everyday workings of the limited liability partnership.
Why might a limited liability partnership need to change LLP SAIL address? A SAIL address must be in the same part of the United Kingdom as the LLP's registered office address. If the LLP moves to a different part of the UK, the SAIL address should also be moved to that part. So, if the LLP was originally based in Carlisle, in Cumbria, with its SAIL in London, but it then moved to Annan, in Scotland, the SAIL would also need to be moved to Scotland.
How can Coddan Ltd LLP registration expert help with changing a SAIL address for an LLP or changing a registered office address for a limited liability partnership? Coddan Ltd can assist with the legal arrangements required to change an LLP SAIL office address or a registered office address. We can prepare a special resolution that calls an extraordinary general meeting of the LLP members where the new address can be agreed through a special resolution, and where the arrangements and decisions are minuted.
LLPs can choose an address personally or professionally known to one or other of the directors or members as a new registered office or SAIL address. However, the facilities to make the documentation available for inspection must come with the new address. Additionally, the name of the LLP must be included in signage on the external walls of the building, where it is visible to the public.
Coddan offers not only the use of a prestigious address in, for example, Baker Street, London, (there are a range of addresses available to use in Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh amongst others) but also makes available the facilities in order to be able to produce the documentation when requested by the authorities. All LLPs which are either registered or have a SAIL at one of Coddan's addresses are named on a plaque at the entrance of the specific address, in order to comply with regulations.
Please take the following important note about the single alternative inspection address and a dormant LLP upon your consideration. If your limited liability partnership is dormant, and does do any sort or any kind of business activities in the United Kingdom, the status of such partnership can remain to be dormant. Dormant LLPs do not require having a SAIL address in the UK, only trading LLPs require having a single alternative inspection address in the country of their incorporation.
