Partnership Firm

What is a partnership firm?

According to the "partnership act" 1932, the term partnership is defined as the relationship between individuals who agrees to share their profit in the decided business.

Partnership firms are preferred by the majority because their structure is more flexible. Similarly, it is more symmetrical.

To incorporate a partnership firm at least two individuals are required. But, the maximum is 20. Further, the shares will be divided amongst the partners according to the capital they have invested. Assuredly, partnership firms do not have a limited liability structure just like a sole proprietorship.

Partnership firms are divided into two classes, register and unregistered. But, in both types of partnerships, a partnership deed is compulsory. Specifically, a partnership deed is a document that is signed and agreed upon by all partners. Further, the document consists of regulations, obligations, rights, and conditions related to the business. So, this document can be prepared by a legal advisor/lawyer. Although, it is not necessary to register a partnership firm, yet the registration adds to the advantages of the business.
