Set up and run a limited partnership

A limited partnership must have at least one 'general partner' and one 'limited partner'. General and limited partners have different responsibilities and levels of liability for any debts the business cannot pay.

Visit GOV.UK for information on limited partnerships, including:

  • choosing a name
  • business names
  • registering your address
  • partners' responsibilities
  • registering your limited partnership
  • becoming an authorised partnership
  • changes you must report
  • where to send forms

This is different from an ordinary business partnership. Visit GOV.UK for information on ordinary business partnerships.
