What is a Partnership?

In a partnership, you and your partner (or partners) personally share responsibility for your business. This includes:

 – Any losses your business makes

 – Bills for things you buy for your business, like stock or equipment

 – Partners share the business’s profits, and each partner pays tax on their share.

A partner does not have to be an actual person. For example, a limited company counts as a ‘legal person’ and can also be a partner.

For more information please visit the GOV website.

When you set up a business partnership you need to:

  • choose a name
  • choose a ‘nominated partner’
  • register with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)

The ‘nominated partner’ is responsible for managing the partnership’s tax returns and keeping business records.

Onyx can take care of partnership set up giving you peace of mind everything has been set up correctly.

There are different rules for limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships (LLPs).


You can set up (‘incorporate’) a limited liability partnership (LLP) to run a business with 2 or more members. A member can be a person or a company, known as a ‘corporate member’.

Each member pays tax on their share of the profits, as in an ‘ordinary’ business partnership, but isn’t personally liable for any debts the business can’t pay.

You’ll need to:

  • choose a name
  • have a registered address – this will be publicly available
  • have at least 2 ‘designated members’
  • have an LLP agreement that says how the LLP will be run
  • register the LLP with Companies House


Onyx can take care of limited liability partnership set up giving you peace of mind everything has been set up correctly.
