Common questions

What are the advantages of a limited liability partnership?
LLPs may appeal to business partners and professionals. The partners in an LLP all share management responsibility and authority over the business—but they are generally not personally liable for the company's debts or for another partner's malpractice. LLPs are often registered by teams of licensed professionals, and in some states, only certain professionals (e.g., lawyers or accountants) are permitted to form LLPs.
How is an LLP taxed?
Limited liability partnerships are taxed as “pass-through entities,” which means the profit and loss is passed through to the individual partners, who are accountable for the income on their personal tax returns. The LLP entity doesn't pay separate income tax, but some states levy an annual franchise tax on the partnership.
What's the difference between an LLP and an LLC?
An LLP (a “limited liability partnership”) and an LLC (a “limited liability company”) have similar names but they aredifferent business structures. An LLP must have at least two partners, while an LLC can have a single member who owns the entire business. Also, some states do not allow licensed professionals to form an LLC, so operating through an LLP gives these professionals personal liability protection. It's generally easier to transfer ownership in an LLC, and the company's day-to-day affairs can be handled by designated managers. In an LLP, all partners have management authority.

Form a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) with LegalZoom

A limited liability partnership (LLP) is a great option for those who want to be involved in making decisions about a business but do not want to share liability. Limited liability partnerships are popular with licensed professionals, including attorneys, accountants, architects and engineers. If you want to enter into a partnership while ensuring your assets are protected, a limited liability partnership could be right for you. In an LLP, one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner's misconduct or negligence. This allows the partners to form an LLP with the goal of growing the business, but without the liability for the other partner's actions. An LLP also allows enough flexibility to bring in new partners and let partners out of the partnership as outlined in a partnership agreement. LegalZoom can help you form a limited liability partnership online. Simply answer a few questions to get started.
