What is a business Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?
An LPA is a legal document that allows those nominated as attorneys to make decisions on a person’s (donor’s) behalf.
A business LPA can be used if a business owner:
- is abroad on holiday or for business
- has had an accident that means they are no longer capable of acting
- has an incapacitating medical condition that means they are no longer capable of acting.
A business LPA is suitable for:
- a sole trader as they are not a separate legal entity to their business
- a person who is self-employed as they are not a separate legal entity to their business
- a director of a company if a director’s incapacitation is not covered by the articles of association or memorandum of association
- a partner within a partnership if a partner’s incapacitation is not covered by the articles of association or memorandum of association.
