783. Failure to deliver annual return

(1) If an LLP fails to deliver an annual return before the end of the period of 28 days after a return date, an contravention of the Companies Regulations is committed by —
(a) the LLP, and
(b) subject to subsection (4), every designated member of the LLP.
(2) A person who commits a contravention of subsection (1) is liable to a level 2 fine.
(3) The contravention continues until such time as an annual return made up to that return date is delivered by the LLP to the Registrar.
(4) It is a defence for a designated member charged with a contravention of subsection (1)(b) to prove that he took all reasonable steps to avoid the commission or continuation of the offence.
(5) In the case of continued contravention, a contravention is also committed by every designated member of the LLP who did not commit a contravention under subsection (1) in relation to the initial contravention but is in default in relation to the continued contravention.

A person guilty of a contravention under this subsection is liable to a level 2 fine."
