Advice on Partnerships

At Financial Management Consultants, we have dedicated accountants to help your business partnership with all of your financial needs. A business partnership shares control, responsibility and finances between 2 or more people. The partner or partners would take on full liability for any debts incurred by the business and all profits would be shared equally. Ordinary partners also take on equal responsibility and decision-making in the running of the business. There are advantages and disadvantages to entering into a business partnership. Business partnerships are relatively easy to establish; make sure time is taken in drafting partnership agreements to avoid future problems. With more than one owner, the ability to raise funds may be increased. The business can benefit using the knowledge base and experience of all of the business partners.

Business partners are jointly and individually liable for the actions of the other partners. Business partners, like sole traders are 100% liable for the actions of the business. Profits must be shared evenly between all partners. Since decisions are shared, disagreements can occur, and therefore the decision making process can take longer.
