INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING CERTIFICATE OF LIMITED PARTNERSHIP The West Virginia Code Chapter 47, Article 9 governs the formation and operation of limited partnerships. Are any types of businesses prevented from operating as limited partnerships? West Virginia Code 24747-9-6 precludes limited partnerships from carrying on the business of banking, brokerage or making insurance. Otherwise, they may engage in any business in which a partnership may engage. What's the difference between a partnership and a limited partnership? Registration - A 223partnership224 is 223an association of two or more persons to carry on as co-owners of a business for profit224 according to WV Code 24747B-2-2 . A general partnership can exist without any registration, and even without specific intent of the partners to form a partnership. A partnership may become a limited partnership, on the other hand, only by filing with the Secretary of State a 223Certificate of Limited Partnership224 (for in State companies) or a 223Statement of Registration of Limited Partnership224 (for out-of-State companies). A limited partnership consists of one or more general partners and one or more limited partners. The names of the general partners are required to be included in the certificate or Statement, but the names of the limited partners are not. Liability - In a general partnership, all partners are liable jointly and severally for all obligations of the partnership unless otherwise agreed by the claimant or provided by law. [24747B-3-6(a) ] In a limited partnership, a limited partner is generally not liable for the obligations of the partnership unless 223he is also a general partner or 205 takes part in the control of the business205224 or 223knowingly permits his name to be used in the name of the limited partnership.224 [24747-9-19 ]What is necessary to form a limited partnership? Partnership Agreement - Although a written agreement is not required by law, it can be the most important legal document partners have. Through the written agreement, partners can determine the partnership's rules relating to admission of partners, voting, rights, and powers of partners, obligations for contributions, sharing of profits and losses, sharing of distributions, withdrawal or partners, events causing dissolution and other matters. Before filing the partnership certificate or registration, read the provisions of WV Code Chapter 47, Article 9 or obtain legal advice about this agreement. Once all your filings are made, the limited partnership is 223in business224 and only the law and your agreement will govern how issues can be resolved. Filing with the Secretary of State - A limited partnership must file with the Secretary of State either on standard forms or in a document which contains all of the required information laid out in approximately the same order as the form.
