Authority for managing information

If you have never updated information for your limited partnership with us before, chances are you don’t have authority confirmed in our online systems.

To confirm your authority you will need to have an online account and upload a letter of authorisation – we have a template you can use to ensure you provide all the information we need.

Registering a limited partnership

To register a limited partnership you must complete an online application and pay a registration fee.

Before you can apply, however, there are a few things you’ll need to have ready.

Filing your annual return

Information about your limited partnership, including your addresses, and details for your general and limited partners, must be confirmed on the Limited Partnerships Register every year by filing an annual return.

If any details have changed, you need to update the register before you file your annual return.

Updating partner details

Details for each of your general and limited partners must be kept up to date on the Limited Partnerships Registers.
