Registration of LLP Members
All Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) must have at least 2 members.
LLP members can be a body corporate or a natural person.
The Registrar requires that these persons have first registered with the Guernsey Registry in order that a unique identity number can be allocated. (N.B this can be done in parallel with the incorporation process)
Where a body corporate will be acting, those bodies corporate already incorporated or registered in Guernsey under either the Companies Law or Limited Partnerships Law need take no further action, as the registration number allocated to them will be utilised for these LLP purposes. For those bodies corporate registered overseas (and not already on our in-house register) it will be necessary to complete an Overseas Corporate Body application form in the online services portal. The Registry will then allocate a number which will then be issued to the body corporate.
For natural persons, if you have already registered with the Guernsey Registry to act as a director, under the Companies Law, you need take no further action as the number previously allocated to you will be used for these LLP purposes. If you have not registered with the Guernsey Registry before as a person/director, please complete a person registration (see guidance below). The Registry will then add the person to our in-house person register and allocate a number which will then be issued to the person.
These forms can be submitted to the Registry via the Online Services Portal. Please see the guidance note below on the information required by the Registry for Person/Director registrations.
There is no fee charged for these person registrations.
It will be necessary for the member registrations to have taken place before the person/body corporate can be linked to a LLP. Please contact the Registry to expedite any person/body corporate registration applications to ensure that any incorporation application is not held up.
