Special Limited Partnership SLP

Co-Investment - Partnership

Following the implementation of AIFMD (Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive) into Luxembourg law, the rules which apply to Luxembourg limited Partnerships have been adapted to create three types of partnerships in Luxembourg:

  • Common Limited Partnership (Société en Commandite Simple) or CLPs

  • Special Limited Partnership (Société en Commandite Spéciale) or SLPs

  • Partnerships Limited by Share (Société en Commandite par Actions) or SCAs

The SCA structure is a type of joint stock company which is widely used for the structuring of investment vehicles. It is a Partnership Limited by Shares.

Limited Partnerships are divided into CLPs (with legal personality) and SLPs (without legal personality).They are treated as "tax transparent" in respect of CIT (Corporate Income Tax), MBT (Municipal Business Tax) and NWT (Net Wealth Tax) purposes, in most cases.
