What is a Partnership Deed?

Two or more people can sign a partnership deed to establish their relationship. Business partners share ownership, management responsibilities, and profits. The partnership deed documents this.

A partnership deed specifies the terms and conditions of the partnership between the partners. Each partner’s role is clearly defined in a partnership agreement, which ensures smooth business operations. Partnerships are different from other forms of business in that partners work together to achieve shared objectives. Partners in partnerships are able to determine the terms of their relationship based on their own preferences. Partnership deeds specify these terms. The partnership agreement outlines the firm’s structure, the rights and duties of the partners, their liabilities, and the ratio by which profits and losses will be divided.
