What are Limited Partnerships?
A limited partnership is a formation in which there are two or more owners in a business who need protections against personal liability and debts. In limited partnerships, there is a general partner who is personally liable for business debts. There is a second limited partner who can invest money and have limited control over the business, but is not personally liable for business debts.
What are the Benefits of Limited Partnerships?
Many may wonder what the benefits are for limited partnerships, especially for the general partner who is still personally liable for the debts of the business. Limited partnerships are beneficial for those who have an investor and who would like more control, but who do not want to have an active role in the business. As motivation for investment, they want to minimize risk. Becoming a limited partner is one way to accomplish that. There are also slightly different tax rules that may be beneficial for a limited partnership over a general partnership.
