Partners within a business partnership have the responsibility to comply with self-assessment rules as individuals, as well as for the partnership itself.
Partners are personally liable for income tax and national insurance contributions on their own individual income, as well as having joint liability for business debts. If the partnership chooses to become a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) the rules around liability are different.
We regularly advise on practice management issues and tax planning in relation to LLPs and individuals. Alongside our tax experts we draw on the experience and expert knowledge from across the firm, including forensic accounting and expert witness, VAT consultancy and management consultancy; giving an all encompassing service offering the best knowledge and expertise to our clients.
