Taxation of Limited Liability Partnership



Taxation of Limited Liability Partnership


Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) in Singapore are treated as pass-through entities for tax purposes. This means the LLP itself isn't taxed on its profits. Instead, each partner is taxed on their share of the LLP's income according to their individual tax rates.


Here's a breakdown of how LLP taxation works in Singapore:


  • Individual Partners: An individual partner's share of the LLP's income is taxed based on their prevailing personal income tax rate.

  • Corporate Partners: A corporate partner's share of the income is taxed at the current corporate tax rate (which is currently 17% in Singapore).


There are some restrictions to be aware of, especially for corporate partners:


  • The amount of capital allowances and trade losses a corporate partner can offset against other income sources may be limited.

  • The partner's ability to utilize these deductions may depend on their shareholding in the LLP and whether the LLP continues the same line of business.


Here are some resources for further information:
