Pennsylvania Limited Liability Partnership

A limited liability partnership is an existing general or limited partnership that files an election with the Bureau of Corporations and Charitable Organizations, claiming LLP status. LLP status provides the general partners with limitations and additional protection on their personal liability as general partners.

  • The limited liability partnership name must be available.
  • The actual street or rural route box number must be provided as an address of its principal place of business. A P.O. Box alone is not acceptable. A Commercial Registered Office Provider's address is acceptable.
  • The form must be signed by a general partner.
Pursuant to Section 8221(e) of the Limited Liability Partnership Law of 1994, 15 Pa. C.S., as amended by Act 34 of 2001 (effective August 21, 2001), any domestic or foreign registered limited liability partnership in existence on December 31 of any year is required to file a Certificate of Annual Registration.  This form and the corresponding annual registration fee must be filed on or before April 15th. 
Failure to file the Annual Registration will result in additional fees, penalties and interest up to and including termination of status as a Limited Liability Partnership.  A Uniform Commercial Code lien will also be placed against the business until all fees have been satisified.
