Canada LP Advantages to Register Ontario LP

Limited Partnerships is a simple form of business registration in Canada, which creates a Canadian company and does not generate filing and tax obligations in Canada for partners, who are not residents of Canada.

This form of business registration is extremely popular among software developers, web programmers; computer support specialists and IT service providers, who offer services to customers in Canada, US and Europe.

Some of the advantages to register your LP in Canada, Ontario:

Software development and IT support services, when major customers are located in Canada, US and EU

Limited Partnership is not considered as a taxable entity. Therefore, LP is not required to file corporate tax returns and pay income taxes.

All profit received by Limited Partnership passes through the company to its partners. Partners, who are not Canadian residents, do not have tax liabilities in Canada. If a partner is a Canadian resident, he is required to include his part of profit received through his Limited Partnership into his personal tax return and pay personal income tax.

There is no withholding tax on the profit passed to partners, who are non-Canadian residents.
