Designated members are legally liable if they do not meet their legal obligations. If members decide to form a subgroup of their designated members, some sources propose to „sugar“ the pill by protecting compensation from possible penalties for non-compliance with applicable administrative requirements. However, penalties for non-compliance are criminal sanctions and, therefore, any compensation under public order would not apply. Entities such as limited companies and other LPLs may also be appointed as full members or appointed members of an LLP. In such cases, they are called „members of the company.“ In the absence of a written or oral partnership agreement, the legislation provides for a number of delay provisions [Note 21]. There are provisions: a partnership contract gives your company the confidence to plan for the future. If you don`t have one, you may be vulnerable to instability, for example, from a partner threatening to dissolve the partnership. An LLP must have at least two members [note 1]. If the LLP continues to act and membership falls on a person for more than six months, that person is jointly liable, with the company, for the debts incurred during that period [Note 2]. The number of members covered by two is also one of the reasons for the dissolution of the LLP (see point 53A.106). There is no cap on the number of members an LLP can have. At the time of admission, members of an LLP are those who signed their names on the founding document (see paragraph 53A.17) [note 3]. After creation, an individual, a company, an LLP, etc., with the agreement of existing members, can become a member of an LLP [Note 4].
A person who dies or a dissolved entity ceases to be a member of an LLP [Note 5]. For LPLs, there is no legal equivalent of the statutes required for limited companies. There is no legal obligation to enter into a simple limited partnership agreement and an LLP can be implemented without agreement.
