The Limited Partnerships Act is one of the oldest legal frameworks attesting the formation of partnerships in Ireland. The law provides for the registration of limited partnerships in Ireland. The Irish legislation on limited partnerships stipulates that two or more natural persons or corporate bodies can open a limited partnership. This type of entity does not have a separate legal personality from its owners. The partners may be local or foreign citizens or companies.

For information about the provisions of the legal framework on limited partnerships you can refer to our Irish specialists in company formation.
