What Constitutes A Partnership Agreement

Part­ners receive com­pen­sa­tion for their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the com­pany. They do not receive a salary like the employ­ees of the com­pany, but rather they receive a dis­tri­b­u­tion or a profit from the com­pany. Part­ner­ship agree­ments can also pro­vide guar­an­teed pay­ments, which are reg­u­lar pay­ments that make the busi­ness prof­itable (like a salary). It is impor­tant to have a part­ner­ship agree­ment, regard­less of the type of part­ner­ship you have — gen­eral part­ner­ship, lim­ited part­ner­ship (LP) or lim­ited part­ner­ship (Lim­ited Lia­bil­ity Part­ner­ship, LLP). In some coun­tries, there is another type of part­ner­ship called the Lim­ited Lia­bil­ity Lim­ited Part­ner­ship (LLLP). You need to indi­cate the nature of the part­ner­ship, because the struc­ture and char­ac­ter­is­tics of each part­ner­ship are very dif­fer­ent. There are three types of part­ner­ships: gen­eral, lim­ited and lim­ited lia­bil­ity. Gen­eral part­ner­ships give each part­ner the same con­trol over busi­ness deci­sions, prof­its, losses and lia­bil­ity for the pay­ment of a-pocket busi­ness expenses if the entity can­not cover those costs. Lim­ited part­ner­ships pro­vide major busi­ness own­ers with con­trol over busi­ness deci­sions and day-to-day oper­a­tions, and the remain­ing part­ners are con­sid­ered “silent investors.” In lim­ited part­ner­ships, major con­trac­tors also bear the largest share of finan­cial respon­si­bil­ity for repay­ing a company‘s debts when the com­pany itself can­not do so. Lim­ited lia­bil­ity com­pa­nies are rarer and may not be legal in some states. In these part­ner­ships, finan­cial respon­si­bil­ity can be shared between key entre­pre­neurs and “silent investor” part­ners. A part­ner­ship con­tract is a con­tract between part­ners as part of a part­ner­ship that defines the terms of the rela­tion­ship between the part­ners, includ­ing: in many ways, a com­mer­cial part­ner­ship is like a per­sonal partnership.

Both types of part­ner­ships must have clear knowl­edge. It is mainly in the eco­nomic sec­tor that these agree­ments should be written.
