Change of Particulars
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.
Limited partnerships are administered by Guernsey Registry on behalf of Her Majesty's Greffier.
Guernsey limited partnerships (LPs) must notify the Greffier (c/o the Guernsey Registry) if there is a change to any of the particulars stated in section 8(2)(d) of the Limited Partnerships (Guernsey) Law, 1995. Those particulars are:
- Name of the limited partnership
- Nature and principal place of its business
- Registered office address
- Name and address of general partner
- Term for which the partnership is entered into and the date of commencement of that term.
Notice of a change to any of these particulars must be sent to the Registry within 21 days of the change occurring. The notice must be signed by the general partner.
Where the change is to the limited partnership's name or registered office, the change shall not be effective until a new certificate of registration has been issued.
There are no set forms for limited partnership change of particulars. Change of particulars notices can be sent to the Registry by post or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The filing fee can be paid by cheque, credit/debit card or Registry credit account.
