Interest in Other Entities
The Family Limited Partnership is an excellent vehicle for holding interests in other business entities. The reason that we mention these other business entities is that the Family Limited Partnership must not ever be engaged in any business activities. You do not want the partnership to buy or sell property or goods or to enter into contracts. If the partnership does business, then the partnership can get sued. And if the partnership gets sued and loses, all of the assets that it holds can be lost.
