Conversion of a limited partnership

We support businesses in the process of restructuring

Conversion of a limited partnership

Since 2021, changes in the taxation of a limited partnership came into effect. From that moment, there partnerships became subject to the corporate income tax. Consequently, generated profits were burdened by double taxation. The end of the year is a good time for evaluating and examining the conversion of a limited partnership into a partnership not subject to the statute on CIT. This conversion process is time-consuming and require complex tax and legal analysis to limit the risk of error and to guarantee the smooth functioning of a business.

Each limited partnership will be required to close out its accounting books at the end of the day before the date when it obtains the status of a payer of corporate income tax. If a limited partnership decides to postpone its taxation until 1 May 2021, and the last day of its financial year falls between 31 December 2020 and 31 March 2021, the partnership may decide not to close out its accounting books on that date, but extend its financial year through 30 April 2021.
