Limited Partnership

Limited Partnerships are registered under the Limited Partnerships Act, 2003, and are subject to the Seychelles Commercial Code.

A LP has substantial statutory tax advantages including the ability to receive income from sources outside Seychelles and distribute such income to foreign partners without incurring any Seychelles tax liability.
