Advantages of an offshore company in Scotland
General Information

The Scottish economy is based on the entrepreneurial system and the state does not interfere much with it. The majority of large businesses are based in Edinburg, the heart of the country’s financial life. At present Scotland is opened to modernization and technological development.

Types of Companies

  • LLP – Limited Liability Partnership
  • PLC – Public Limited Company
  • Limited partnership
  • European Economic Interest Grouping (GEIE)
  • European Company (SE)
LLP is the type of entity mostly used by foreign investors to set up in the country.

LLP corporations, the shareholders of which do not reside in the UK and are not doing business on its territory are not liable to taxation unless they decide to be. The corporate revenue is considered to be the partners’ income, thus being taxable in accordance with the shares held in the home country of the stockholder or the country of incorporation in case the entity is set up by companies.

It’s advisable that the participants of a “non-resident LLP” reside in the tax-advantageous non-European zones, to establish a firm status of non-residence for taxation in UK.


Aiming to attract investments and encourage innovation along with skills development, Scotland promotes the favorable business environment and maintains high living standards. Various financial incentives are offered to the foreign entrepreneurs in Scotland. Tax credits for R&D expenses and grants for the projects in the environmental protection sphere are just some of them.


Balance sheet, income statement and a schedule are obligatory for any business, annual audit and publication are mandatory to a certain type of businesses depending on the corporate structure.

Scotland is known by financial independence, political and economic stability, including existence of attractive forms of business organization, where a limited liability partnership (Scottish Limited Partnership – SLP) plays a significant role. The SLP operates as an alternative of the offshore company and gives the chance to the business owner be exempted from the taxation.

General information about Scotland

Scotland was founded in 843. In 1707 the English and Scottish Governments took the decision to unite territories and create Great Britain. Nowadays Scotland is an administrative and political part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Scotland is situated in northern part of the island Great Britain, near England, and washed by Atlantic Sea, Northern and Irish Seas.

Administrative center: Edinburgh.
Population: 5,3 million.
Official language: English.
Currency: British pound (GBP).
Currency exchange control: no.
The law system: the Anglo-Saxon.
Taxation system: resident.
Political system: parliamentary monarchy.
State system: Scotland has its own Parliament which acts as the main legislature. Executive power belongs to the Government headed by the Prime minister. The judicial system is presented by different courts. The Supreme Court – the highest judicial instance, then there are Courts of Appeal, Courts of the first instance (District Courts) and Justice of the Peace Courts.

Key Applications of SLP are:

  • Export/import operations
  • Investments
  • Holding

Advantages of Scotland:

  • Political stability
  • The high level of reputation
  • Absence of currency control
  • Null taxes, if partners of SLP are off shore companies
  • It isn’t necessary to pass non-financial reports

Shortcomings of Scotland:

  • It is necessary to hand over the annual tax declaration
  • There is no opportunity to avoid double taxation if partners of SLP are nonresidents of Great Britain
  • Information about the tax status of SLP is available in the public sources
  • If the General partner is used, the risks (that are connected to his unlimited liability) are increased
Other features

If the Partnership’s turnover reaches 77 000 pounds sterling (GBP) a year, then the Partnership has the right to obtain a VAT number in Great Britain. Nevertheless, this procedure is more difficult for the Partnership, than for the company with limited liability (LTD).

What does SLP mean?

Such type of organization as SLP appeared in 1907 when Limited Partnerships Act entered into force in Britain. According to this Act partnership is a separate legal entity that has the right to own assets and to sign agreements. To register SLP, all partners shall sign the special LP5 Form and send it to the Register of the Companies in Edinburgh. After registration the Registration certificate is issued.

For partnership’s management the General partner is appointed. At least one General partner with the unlimited liability shall be in the staff of the company. For the minimization of risk that concerns unlimited liability, the General partner often uses the legal entity or offshore formations. In that case it is possible to appoint the managing director who will be engaged in maintaining documentation and other relevant issues.

According to Partnership’s requirements, except the General partner, there must be at least one limited liability partner in the staff of the company. Such partner has no right to manage the partnership, but bears responsibility to creditors limited to the share in the partnership. The limited liability partner has no right to take away his contribution from the partnership until its existence comes to the end.

SLP doesn’t pay corporate taxes and capital gains taxes. All profit of SLP accumulates in partners’ hands. Each partner has to declare the profit in the native country and pay the corresponding income tax.

Partners of SLP who are nonresidents of Great Britain may not pay the British taxes if the following conditions are satisfied:

– SLP doesn’t conduct the activity on the territory of Great Britain;
– SLP gains income outside Great Britain;
– General partner isn’t a resident of Great Britain.

If SLP doesn’t want to pay taxes at all, then companies from offshore jurisdictions are appointed as partners, for example, companies from Panama, BVO, Nevis and other countries.

Distribution of SLP income:

Income of partnership is distributed in proportion between partners depending on share of participation of each partner, or in any other manner, which partners agree to in advance.
