How do self-assessment tax returns work for business partners?
There are different forms of partnership, such as Limited Liability Partnerships and Limited Partnerships and you will need to decide which type is the most suitable for the business venture you are running. When you run a business based on a business partnership, you are required to register this with HMRC and nominate one of the partners to be in charge of filing a tax return for the partnership. This nominated partner is then responsible for filing the tax return for the business partnership – although each partner will also be responsible for filing their own individual tax return as well.
The partnership tax return will inform each partner of their share of the profits (or losses), which will be needed for each individual partner’s tax return.
As with so many things in life, there are advantages and disadvantages to running your business as a partnership. The main disadvantage is that you are all held responsible if one of the partners does something they shouldn’t – so if the business partnership claims tax relief that it isn’t entitled to, you will all be seen as culpable in the eyes of HMRC. On the other hand, though, they can be an easy way to set up a business of more than one person and you can often find that credit comes more easily to business partners than sole traders.
