Forming an LLP

Limited liability partnerships are formed by either:

  • Filing a certificate with the Secretary of State or
  • Filing a certificate to convert an existing general partnership to a limited liability partnership

Limited liability partnerships are run like general partnerships in that the partners manage the business directly. LLPs also have a similar degree of management flexibility. Income, losses and gains are passed through to the partners according to the partnership agreement.
