On the website of the Company Registrar, one can download the list of limited partnerships (LPs) created under the Limited Partnerships Ordinance (see "Other Products"), where names, registration numbers and dates are shown (for HKD 22 or EUR 2.52). Then, by searching the Document Index for a specific LP, one can purchase the initial registration document and any "Notice of change in the limited partnership" (for HKD 13 each, or EUR 1.26). In the "Notice of change in the limited partnerships" the details of any new general or limited partner are shown, including the name, place of incorporation, address and registration number, as well as the capital contribution. The cost (C) of accessing complete legal ownership information for Limited Partnerships is of: C = 22 + 13 + [number of changes in partners]*13 HKD. While the cost of accessing legal ownership information may be over 10 USD/EUR/GBP in cases where the Limited Partnership has had many changes in partners following registration, we consider that legal ownership is available.
