About this document

The Limited Partnerships Act 1907 enables you to set up a trading vehicle where only one partner can be liable if things go wrong.

This Professionally drawn agreement is very flexible, so that you can easily edit it to suit the arrangements you have in mind. It is used most commonly for high risk ventures in property, finance, mining or research, or for ventures abroad, where there may be political risk. A limited partnership enables a single partner to carry the liability. That partner may be a limited company with little or no assets, so preserving the assets of other partners. Often, all partners are companies.

The registration requirement is very light. There is no requirement for submission of returns. Secrecy can be maintained.

The document deals with nearly all my concerns and adequately covers those issues raised in the Act.You have provided a comprehensive document without the added major legal costs. I bought from you because of ease of use and cost. The most important thing was a document that can be executed immediately. I would certainly recommend you to others.

I never give out perfect scores so you're getting a 4.

The template was an adequate product for my needs. However, in my case I (As an individual) will be the GP, not a company. I had to make a number of alterations in this regard. But that's a minor complaint - and you quite clearly stated that the template was designed under the assumption that a company would be the GP.
