Uses of an LLP by UK clients in day-to-day business, using a limited liability partnership in business

Tips how to use an LLP in business: LLPs combine company and partnership law, protecting the personal assets of those involved but allowing profits to be withdrawn almost as a sole trader under the partnership structure. The LLP structure also allows for members to come and go, apart from the initial designated members. With Coddan Ltd's nominee member service, though, your limited liability partnership can maintain absolute fluidity.

At Coddan Ltd we have deep experience in limited liability partnerships establishment in the UK and can advise on the different structures available. In fact, over the last eight years we have helped set up over 200,000 businesses. Our LLP incorporation services also include free banking introductions for UK customers and also the option for non-UK clients to open EU, UK, Swiss or offshore bank accounts to service the LLPs, including verification of LLP documents by apostille stamp.

Uses of a UK LLP: forming a business in the UK involves choosing between various company structures and for many the limited liability partnership (LLP) is an attractive option. The LLP has become established as a common structure for professional partnerships but other entrepreneurs are now coming to appreciate the benefits of the structure. The LLP has many similarities with the limited company (LTD). Both will be registered at Companies House and both will receive a certificate of incorporation. Thereafter, both will have to submit annual accounts and filing annual returns. Both structures also offer the protection of limited liability. There are, however, significant differences between the two structures.

Differences between a limited company and limited liability partnership: LLP must have a minimum of two members, while the LTD can operate with just a single director. The LLP does not have to hold an annual general meeting. There are also differences in the taxation regime that applies to LTDs and LLPs, particularly around the remuneration of directors or members. One significant difference is that LLPs cannot issue shares. This can make it more difficult to raise finance as they cannot sell shares to raise capital. It can also be more difficult to construct an exit strategy and sell or transfer the assets of the LLP.

Uses of an LLP by the UK and EU customers

Use of a UK LLP

An LLP, or limited liability partnership allows you to work with partners to enjoy the same benefits of a limited company, and can be used in a variety of different circumstances. In many situations, businesses are advised that incorporating an LLP in the UK is suitable for larger enterprises, however, this isn't necessarily true. An LLP can be a useful arrangement in a whole host of different trades and business sectors, from bakers to plumbers and everything in-between.

In essence, a limited liability partnership does what it says on the tin. It provides a professional container for partnerships of any number of individuals who work together. By working together the partners may be at risk of any negligence caused by the carelessness or accident of a colleague but a limited liability partnership protects the assets of each individual member of the LLP.

You may have heard examples already, of high-level clients using an LLP such as international construction partnerships. If, for example, a building collapsed and caused claims against of the LLP, the LLP members would benefit from liability protection. Limited liability partnerships may also be useful in the event that one of the partners does not actively involve himself in day to day business, such as a "sleeping" partner. Limited liability partnership incorporation is not the long and frustrated process to incorporate a new business as a limited liability partnership, as some other providers describe.

If you are working with a partner or partners, where people enter and leave the team more regularly than you would expect in a limited company, an LLP is a good choice too. It doesn't matter the size of the venture, an LLP is a suitable arrangement for businesses of almost any shape or size, so don't be put off if you are only a small venture right now, speak to a incorporation agent about your own business' requirements.
