In the case of an UK LLP - will the balance and/or profit and loss of the UK LLP become visible for the public through the annual filings at the Companies House?
Hello and welcome to the site.
Thank you for your question.

A Small LLP can opt to file abbreviated accounts in accordance with Section 444(3) of the Companies Act 2006. This means there is no need to file a profit and loss account.

The Balance Sheet will show Retained earnings (profit & loss account) and this will be open to public domain. More information on this can be found here (page 24 of 54)

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. and other UK Tax Specialists are ready to help you
