Nova Scotia LP Advantages
A Canadian L.P with foreign partners, not carrying on a business in Canada and deriving no income on Canadian territory, is not liable for local taxation in Canada. According to the Canadian tax laws, an L.P. is not considered as a taxable entity; taxation falls upon each partner, who is liable for payment of taxes from the profits received from the L.P. at their own place of residence, on the proportion of their own equity help on the partnership.
The advantages offered by the Nova Scotia LP are the same as those offered by UK LLPs.
– A Nova Scotia LP is created by registering a partnership with the Nova Scotia Corporate Registry; It is formed by two or more corporate (or individual) persons entering into a partnership agreement, for the carrying on of a lawful business for profit;
– Although the registrations of LPs in other Canadian provinces are restricted to professional practices, there are no similar limitations for Nova Scotia LPs;
– There are no restrictions on the jurisdiction of incorporation or residence of the partners;
– The entering into of a written partnership agreement is recommended to ensure greater ease of regulation between the partners;
– The agreement, which is essentially the ‘constitution’ of the LP, is a private document, which does not require registration or public disclosure;
– Nova Scotia LP accounts are not required to be publicly filed or disclosed;
– Nova Scotia LPs are required to file an annual report with the Nova Scotia Corporate Registry; although the filed annual reports are open to public inspection, they contain limited information. Generally Nova Scotia LPs must submit annual Partnership Information Returns to the Canadian Revenue Agency which state the partners’ share of the profits and losses of the LLP. However, this obligation can be dispensed with where the LP has 5 or fewer partners; does not carry on business in Canada; and does not have any Canadian partners;
– It is possible to set up an LP so that it is transparent for taxation purposes;
