When registering the partnership, the actual partnership agreement does not need to be filed. In a limited partnership, one of the partners must have unlimited liability.
An international partnership must have one resident partner which can be either a resident licensed trustee company or an international company incorporated under the International Companies Act and registered on the islands. The rest of the partners must be non-resident.
