Change of LP 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.

Guernsey limited partnerships (LPs) must notify 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 made via the Online Services Portal 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.

The filing fee can be paid by cheque, credit/debit card or Registry credit account.
