If you are thinking of going into business, one of the first things you must consider is decide on the most effective structure in which to conduct your business. A partnership is one of several structures you may use.
Partnership law in Australia is governed by The Partnership Act. The Act defines a partnership as “the relation between people carrying on business in common with a view of profit, and includes an incorporated limited partnership.” This is a contractual relationship which imposes rights and obligations on all parties to the contract. While a partnership can be very rewarding and profitable, as with all contracts, it is important to fully understand the implications and responsibilities that attach to the partnership before entering into one.
