Please note that, as we are advised by the government of British Columbia, there have been some changes introduced and approved for certain government forms.
As of December 1, 2011, Form 2 and Form 3 of the Partnership Regulation have been amended. The amendment struck the words “residential or registered address” and defined the address for a proprietor or a partner to be a residential address only if the partner or proprietor is an individual.
In addition to the revisions above, BC Registry Services also took this opportunity to change the Form 2 and Form 3 into two separate forms each for partnerships and proprietorships; as well as adding a Contact section to collect an email address, phone number or fax number.
The new forms are called:
- Statement of Registration Sole Proprietorship;
- Statement of Registration General Partnership;
- Dissolution or Change of Proprietorship Registration; and
- Dissolution or Change of Partnership Registration.
As a result of the changes to the Statement of Registration form, the registration information package was also revised to form two new packages – one for registration of a partnership and the other for registration of a proprietorship.
Note that any previous copies of the REG721, Dissolution or Change of Partnership or Proprietorship Registration; REG707, Statement of Registration of General Partnership or Sole Proprietorship; and Information on Registration of a Partnership/Proprietorship, are to be thrown out.
The new forms and information packages are available from the following links:
No printed copies were produced due to the fact that 98% of the registrations of a partnership or proprietorship being completed online. Forms may be downloaded from the above links.
