A limited liability partnership (“LLP”) is a type of partnership where the liability of all partners is limited to the amount that they have each contributed to the partnership. This is unlike a limited partnership in which there exists at least one general partner whose liability is unlimited while the rest of the liability of the remaining partners is limited.

An LLP combines the simplicity of a traditional partnership with the limited liability benefit similar to that of a limited liability company.

An LLP is a body corporate with separate legal personality from the partners and can own property and be sued in its own name.

The LLP must have at least 2 partners (either an individual or corporation) and 1 manager (an individual).

From a tax perspective, the income of an LLP is taxed on the individual partners and is not subject to corporate tax.

LLPs are regulated by the Limited Liability Partnerships Act, 2011 (“Act”) which provides for the registration of LLPs under Part IV of the Act and the Limited Liability Partnerships (Registration) Rules, 2012.

The registration process for LLPs is done online under the Business Registration Service option on the eCitizen portal (https://www.ecitizen.go.ke/).
