Requirements to start a limited partnership in Singapore

Under the Limited Partnerships Act two or more individuals or companies are allowed to open a limited partnership in Singapore. The Singapore limited partnership must be formed by:

  • -          one or more general partners,
  • -          one or more limited partners.

The general partners in Singapore limited partnerships will be fully liable with their personal assets for the company’s debt and responsibilities. The general partners will also be in charge with the management of the Singapore company. The limited partners, on the other hand, will be held liable for the company’s debts and obligations only to the extent of their participation in the limited partnership. Limited partners will not be involved in the management of the company.

Registration of limited partnerships in Singapore

A limited partnership must be created by registration with the Singapore Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority. Foreign citizens or companies wanting to set up a limited partnership are required to request the services of company formation specialists in Singapore.

 The first step will be the name reservation. Once the name is approved, the applicant must specify the purpose of the Singapore limited partnership. The partnership must also appoint at least one Singapore resident director.

Limited partnerships are not subject to audit requirements and need not file annual returns with ACRA. However, they will be required to maintain their accounting records for at least 5 years. For information related to the taxation of limited partnerships you can contact our consultants in company registration in Singapore.
