Conversion & Migration

Please note: These guidance notes are not intended to be definitive legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. The interpretation of legislation is a matter on which the Guernsey Registry cannot advise and entities/individuals need to form their own independent view on compliance with the legislation. Independent legal advice is advised where there is any uncertainty.


Conversion of a firm to a limited liability partnership

A firm can apply to the Registrar to convert to a limited liability partnership (LLP).

All LLP conversion applications must be made by a Corporate Service Provider (CSP) who holds a full fiduciary licence from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission.

The Registry has a directory of CSPs available here.

LLP conversion submissions are currently made by completing the paper form available below and emailing it to enquiries@guernseyregistry.com. Payment of the filing fee can be made by Registry credit account, credit/debit card or cheque.

Please note: All LLP members/resident agents must be registered with the Guernsey Registry before submitting the conversion form. This is the same process as registering a director for a company, and if an individual is already registered with the Registry as a director, there is no need to register again.

On receipt of a LLP conversion application, it must be published on the Registry website for 28 days before the conversion can take effect.
