Reasons to incorporate a limited partnership in Scotland: a limited partnership incorporation in Scotland offers different benefits to businesses than other company structures. Among them are that they can hold assets in their own name, and there are significant tax advantages that set them apart from limited partnerships in England and Wales.
If you are considering incorporating a limited partnership in Scotland, the first thing you need to be aware of is that the process is different to elsewhere in the UK, as Scotland has its own partnership laws.

A limited partnership in Scotland is registered at Companies House in Edinburgh, and is basically a structure where there's a general partner or partners as well as one limited partner at least. The limited partner or partners will add capital to the enterprise, or property.
The general partners in the business are then responsible for the entirety of its obligations, and any debts that might occur during its trading life. However, the limited partners are only responsible for what they put into the business, but they are not allowed to run or control the business, nor are they permitted to take out what they have contributed to it.
