LLP Insolvency

Under the Limited Liability Partnership Act of 2000, an LLP is defined as a distinct legal and corporate entity. This means that – like any limited company – an LLP can be insolvent, and can be dealt with in a similar way to an insolvent company.

Dealing with an insolvent LLP

LLP insolvency occurs if the firm incurs debts that it cannot pay. For an LLP in financial difficulty, the options might include:

Members of an LLP in financial difficulty should be aware that, like a company, a liquidator of an LLP has the same power to investigate members for wrongful trading, fraudulent trading or misappropriation. Members can also be disqualified from being a company director or member of an LLP.

Advice on LLP liquidation and insolvency

This is a complex area and it is essential that members of an LLP facing insolvency seek legal advice at the earliest possible opportunity, to avoid or mitigate any complications. It is also essential that a limited liability partnership agreement contains clear provisions for insolvency proceedings and winding up, such as ownership of property, and responsibility for debts and account keeping.
