Do You Need a Partnership Agreement?

When setting up either a general partnership or a limited liability partnership, drafting a partnership agreement is a must. While it is legally possible to create a business partnership without a partnership agreement, doing so is risky and can lead to problems between partners down the road.

Benefits of a General Partnership

A general partnership can provide a business with structure and control in addition to other benefits. In most general partnerships, profits are shared equally among the partners. Typically, partners will sign a contract at the commencement of the general partnership which outlines how profits and losses will be divided. As asset protection vehicles, general partnerships are not an ideal choice, since they do not offer limited or severable liability. Each partner is responsible for the actions and liabilities of every one of the other partners. A general partnership is intended to distribute risk as well as managerial flexibility.
