Consultation description

We’re aware of concerns that some limited partnerships registered in Scotland are being used for criminal activity. There has been a recent increase in the number of limited partnerships registered in Scotland in comparison to those registered in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We’re seeking views and evidence on:

  • the possible reasons why registration of limited partnerships in Scotland has increased
  • the value limited partnerships bring to the UK economy as a whole
  • how the wider limited partnership framework operates and whether any changes need to be made

We welcome responses from all interested parties.
