[Extract] Limited partnerships may be formed in all jurisdictions except the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory.1They are comprised of at least one limited partner and at least one general partner.2Limited partners are partners who contribute to the capital of the partnership but who do not take part in its management, who cannot bind the firm3and whose liability to contribute to the debts or obligations of the partnership is limited to their capital contribution.4General partners are all partners who are not limited partners.5The obligations of general partners in a limited partnership are similar to those of partners in an ordinary partnership and their liability Page 190 is unlimited.6Limited partners can become general partners and general partners can become limited partners, pro-vided there is at least one general partner remaining to carry on the firm's business.7If they do, the limitation of their liability will be varied accordingly.8Regulations may be made by the respective State Governors under the limited partnerships legislation.
