  • The name of the jurisdiction under which the foreign limited liability partnership was organized and the date of its formation in the state of organization.
  • An actual street or rural route box number must be provided as an address. A P.O. Box alone is not acceptable. A Commercial Registered Office Provider's address is acceptable.
  • A listing of the address of the office required to be maintained in the jurisdiction of its organization by the laws of that jurisdiction or, if not so required, of the principal office of the foreign limited liability partnership.
  • A listing of the name and business address of each 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 15. 
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.
