Partnership Agreement (General)

Just like a marriage it’s wise to choose your business partners well.

Many people find themselves in an actual business partnership without even knowing it. Under Australian tax law you can be deemed to be partners simply by the conduct of the parties towards one another (TR 94/8).

In simple terms, a business partnership is formed when two or more people carry on a business together or receive income jointly.

Business partners are generally liable for the obligations created by each other in the context of doing business.

Partners have the authority to bind the partnership to legal arrangements and incur debts on behalf of the partnership, placing the personal assets of the partners at risk.


So if you want some control over your rights and how the partnership impacts on your personal financial situation, then it’s a wise move to have a PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT (or partnership contract) in place.

If you are thinking about a single, short-term project, our Joint Venture agreement maybe more suitable.

A written agreement provides the framework

A written contract provides the framework for the relationship spelling out the obligations and expectations of the relationship, which reduces the potential for confusion and disputes. It should cover:-:

  • What will happen if one partner wants
    to sell their share?
  • The equity split of the partnership, ie, how much does each partner own?
  • How will the profits (or the losses) be split?
  • What should
    happen upon the death of a partner and many other situations.

It’s best to get
these issues out on the table before they become a real problem or large amounts
of money become involved.

If you are thinking about a single, short-term project, our Joint Venture agreement maybe more suitable.
