Gibraltar: Types of Company

General Partnership

Partnerships are governed by the Partnership Act (as updated), which is based on the English Partnership Act 1890. Partners may be individuals or companies. In a general partnership, a partner's liability is unlimited. Under the Business Names Registration Ordinance, partnership names must be registered if they differ from the surnames of the partners. Partnership agreements and financial accounts do not have to be filed although a partnership that is resident in Gibraltar must submit accounts annually to the Commissioner of Income Tax. Partnerships are, of course, fiscally transparent. The minimum number of partners is two, and the maximum number 20, although this does not apply to professional firms.
