Notes

 
Information on the limited partners could not be found online. This is also in line with article 17 of the Limited Partnership Act, according to which: "The following registered information of a limited partnership shall be made open to the public by the central competent authority, and any person may apply to the competent authority for an access thereto or for making copy thereof: (1) Name of the limited partnership; (2) Business to be conducted; (3) Location of the limited partnership; (4) Name of each general partner and capital contribution amount and liability type of each partner; (5) Actual payment of the installment of capital contribution upon formation and/or type(s) of non-cash contribution; (6) Duration of the limited partnership; (7) Branch(s) of a domestic limited partnership; (8) Name of the limited partnership responsible person; (9) Name(s) of the managerial officer(s); and (10) Agreed causes of dissolution" (Limited Partnership Act, Article 17). The information was indeed found on the website of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, but for all the limited partnerships we checked, no information was found on the limited partners (findbiz.nat.gov.tw).
