There is no requirement for a limited partnership (LP) to send accounts to us unless The Partnerships (Accounts) Regulations 2008 (SI 569/2008), as amended by the Companies and Partnerships (Accounts and Audit) Regulations 2013, apply.

Where these regulations apply, any General Partners that are UK limited companies must attach a copy of the' partnership's accounts to the copy of their own limited company accounts that they submit for filing.

Although there are no legal requirements for most Limited partnerships (LP) to prepare and file accounts, most Limited Partnerships (LP) choose to do so as the accounts need to be prepared for the limited partners and the general partners.

This equally applies to the Private Fund Limited Partnerships (PFLPs) established under The Legislative Reform (Private Fund Limited Partnerships) Order 2017.

What do the LP Accounts include?

The LP's accounts Usually include the following statements:

  • Statement of Financial Position (or Balance Sheet), which shows the value of assets, liabilities and equity of the company
  • The company's income and expenses for the financial period is also shown by the statement of comprehensive income ( or Profit and loss account)
  • Notes to the Accounts, which provide further details on the accounts
  • Member's report

However, as there is no legal requirement to file the partnership accounts, the partners may choose to only produce some statements. Therefore, many choose to produce only the profit and loss account.
