Limited Partnerships

In a modern and sophisticated Finance Centre, doing business in Gibraltar offers all the solutions you need. Limited partnerships offer a hybrid solution for establishing a business in Gibraltar

A Limited Partnership is a form of partnership that, under Gibraltar Law, offers a series of advantages which may be desirable in specific circumstances. The governing legislation for Gibraltar Limited Partnerships is the Limited Partnerships Act 1927. Some of the features of a Gibraltar Limited Partnership are as follows:

  • A Limited Partnership offers limited liability to certain of the partners;
  • A Limited Partnership is a registered form of a partnership, as required by the provisions of the Limited Partnerships Act. Once registered, a certificate of registration and a registration number can be obtained from the Registrar of Companies in Gibraltar.
  • A Limited Partnership registered in Gibraltar is not automatically subject to Gibraltar tax. If the management and control of the partnership is situated overseas, the partnership is deemed to be Gibraltar non-resident for tax purposes, although this needs to be carefully checked with the tax authorities.

Gibraltar Limited Partnerships allow for a number (the restriction on numbers of partners was lifted by amendment in 2013) of ‘General partners’ who are involved in the day to day management of the business and crucially are fully responsible for the Limited Partnership’s debts and other obligations, and ‘Limited Partners’ whose liability is limited to the extent of their contribution.  Limited Partners have no power to bind the firm – only General Partners are able to do so.

For further information, view Information on Limited Partnerships on the Companies House Gibraltar Website
