Isle of Man: Types of Company
International Limited Partnership
An International Limited Partnership (ILP) is similar in structure to a Limited Partnership and was introduced by the International Business Act 1994. The general partner must be a Manx-resident company and must comply with the requirements for a company to be an International Company (see above); the limited partners must either be non-resident or must be themselves International Companies. The status of International Limited Partnership has to be applied for each year, along with the payment of an annual fee, and the Assessor issues a certificate. On demand, an ILP must produce its accounting records to the Assessor. There is no limitation on the number of partners in an ILP, and this format is suitable for collective investment vehicles, among others.
