A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) is like an ordinary partnership in that several individuals or body corporate, known as the “Members”, share in the risks, costs, responsibilities and profits of the business. The difference is that liability is limited to the amount of money they have invested in the business and to any personal guarantees they have given to raise finance. This means that members have some protection if the business runs into trouble.
