Why opt for an LLP Agreement?

 

Our no-cost draft LLP agreement, prepared by experts, helps you save money on Legal costs and helps avoid costly disputes.

Regardless of individual member contributions which could be unequal in the denomination, a fair and equal division of share capital and profits isn't possible without an LLP set in place Another important fact is that without an agreement, an underperforming employee cannot be banished from the LLP.

Members failing to reflect on their intentions will have legislation rights and obligations imposed on them. A written agreement entitles its members to vary or exclude the default position imposed by law, and to establish an agreement in other areas.

The draft LLP Agreement is only prepared by specialist partnership solicitors.

 

Limited Liability Partnership Formation

A limited liability partnership (LLP) is similar to an ordinary partnership - in that a number of individuals or limited companies share in the risks, costs, responsibilities and profits of the business.

The difference is that liability is limited to the amount of money they have invested in the business and to any personal guarantees they have given to raise finance. This means that members have some protection if the business runs into trouble.

Requirements:

Each member needs to register as self-employed - see the page in this guide on self-employment. There must be a minimum of two designated members - the law places extra responsibilities on them. If the LLP reduces in number and there are fewer than two designated members then every member is deemed to be a designated member. LLPs must register at Companies House. 

Management and raising finance:

Usually the members manage the business, but can delegate responsibilities to employees. Members raise money out of their own assets and/or with loans.

Records and accounts:

The LLP itself and each individual member must make annual self-assessment returns to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). All LLPs must file accounts with Companies House. An annual reminder letter will be sent to the LLP a few weeks before the due date requesting they download the form from the Companies House website. It needs to be completed and returned to Companies House with the appropriate fee. 

Profits:

Each member takes an equal share of the profits, unless the members' agreement specifies otherwise. 

Tax and National Insurance:

Members of a partnership pay tax and National Insurance contributions on their share of the profits. The profits of a member of an LLP are taxable as profits of a trade, profession or vocation and members remain self-employed and subject to Class 2 and Class 4 National Insurance contributions.
