Please note: These guidance notes are not intended to be definitive legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. The interpretation of legislation is a matter on which the Guernsey Registry cannot advise and entities/individuals need to form their own independent view on compliance with the legislation. Independent legal advice is advised where there is any uncertainty.
Under section 22 of the Limited Liability Partnerships (Guernsey) Law, 2013, all Guernsey LLPs must file an Annual Validation with the Registry during June each year (except LLPs registered in May of the year in question).
The Annual Validation must contain the LLP's details as at 31 May in the year in question.
Paper copies of the Annual Validation forms are sent out to the registered office of each LLP during May. The forms are pre-populated with the current information held on the register.
A member of the LLP (authorised to make the necessary declaration) will need to check that the information provided is accurate and sign and date the form. The form must then be returned to the Registry with payment of the annual validation fee by 30th June.
The fee of £500 can be paid by cheque (payable to Guernsey Registry), credit/debit card or Registry credit account. Late filing fees of £100 per month will apply for all annual validations received from 1 July.
