While the Partnership Act 1890 governs partnerships generally, it leaves many important questions as to how the partnership is to be run to the partners themselves. Typically, such decisions are recorded in a partnership agreement.
There is no statutory requirement to register (or even to have) a written partnership agreement, but such an agreement is essential in practice. Without one, many major details will go unrecorded, such as the proportions in which the members own the business, who is entitled to the profits and who is liable for the losses, and other important matters. Without a partnership agreement, very real disputes can arise, especially on the death or departure of a partner, which can only be resolved with expensive litigation.
Such problems can be avoided entirely by having a partnership agreement drafted. Our service is fast, reliable and provided at low cost.
