What You Should Know About Limited Partnership

The idea of matching up with compatible business partners will eventually hit the majority of entrepreneurs. Imitators soon followed, and at this point, there is no shortage of websites that will help the aspiring entrepreneur to hook up and partner up with others who will be able to get a business up and to grow.

Caution is still the need of the hour, and a failure to be honest and open with your wants can still set you up for failure. The goal is not to double your effort but to take advantage of the much-needed skills and knowledge that someone brings to your business which you lack. Just as important as the hard skills are the soft skills.

Age works two ways. While it is tempting to hook up with a business partner who is of similar age as you, do not limit yourself. Understand that taking on a partner is not a guarantee for business success. Instead, it is a way of stacking the odds in your favour! There are too many business settings you can have.

A limited partnership is a type of partnership, but the difference is that a general partnership should have at least 2 general partners, and a single limited partnership should have one general partner and one limited partner.

Background of limited liability in limited partnership

Same goes to the shareholders in a specific corporation, limited partners in a limited partnership have limited liability. In other words, the limited partners have zero management authority, and are not liable for the debts of such partnership (unless they have obligated themselves by another contract such as the guaranty). The limited partnership delivers the limited partners some good return on their investments (the same goes to a dividend), and the extent and nature of which is typically defined in partnership agreement. General Partners will tend to bear more economic risk compared to the limited partners, and if there is great financial loss, the general partners will be the ones liable.

Limited partnership interests are afforded a considerable level of protection and safety through the charging order mechanism.
