Singapore Limited Liability Partnership

A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is a perfect blend of a partnership with the benefits of private limited company.

An LLP gives its owners the flexibility of operating as a partnership, while having a separate legal identity similar to a private limited company. This type of entity is highly suitable for individuals engaged in professional services, including lawyers, architects, accountants and management consultants. Singapore citizens, residents, and employment pass holders can register a LLP. Foreign individuals and companies may also register an LLP but must appoint a local manager.

Features of an LLP

  • It is a separate legal entity.
  • Partners have limited liability.
  • Minimum of two partners, no maximum limit.

Tax and Singapore LLP
