Limited partnerships are not incorporated and are subject to the LPA and other applicable laws. They typically consist of at least one general partner who has liability for all debts and obligations of the firm, and one or more limited partners who have limited liability up to the amount that they contribute or agree to contribute to the limited partnership.
The registration is valid for 5 years and must be renewed. Late renewals are subject to a $150 penalty fee. BIN number is required when renewing.
