If someone wants to understand the partnership contract, he or she needs to know how it came to be. When two or more people want to start a business together and split the profits and loses, they form a partnership. This written deal is called a “Partnership Deed.” It could also be called a “Partnership Agreement.” And when a business like this is registered under its own name, it is called a “Partnership Firm.”


Partnership Deed is a written Partnership Agreement. It is basically made when two or more people want to start a new business they come together under the mutual understanding with the only purpose to do business & share profits & losses in the decided manner.

Key Points to Remember While Drafting Partnership Deed:

1. Number of Members:
In a Partnership, there is a minimum requirement for two members. Previously there was a limitation on the number of partners as follows:

  • a. Banking business-Less than or equal to ten
  • b. Non-Banking business- Less than or equal to twenty
If there are more partners than the given above then it becomes illegal to continue the business of the partnership.
2. Minimum capital requirement:
There’s no limitation on the requirement of capital at the beginning of the business. Partners can start of the business with as much as minimum capital they want. The calculation of stamp duty also depends on the amount of capital which has been put by partners.
3. The name should be different:
While deciding a name for the firm the care has been taken that it should not indicate any undesirable intention, it should be simple & easy.


A Partnership Deed is mainly formed on the basis of the following five factors which are given as under:

  1. 1. A partnership deed is basically said to be a contract between the partners of the business. Which binds all the partners in a legal relationship between the partners.
  2. 2. The minimum requirement for forming a partnership is of two members & there is a limitation of ten in case of banking & twenty in case of non-banking business.
  3. 3. All partners should have a mutual understanding for doing a business.
  4. 4. The ratio for profits & losses should be decided among all the partners well in advance.
  5. 5. All partners should maintain the relationship as a principal-agent. Every partner is answerable for the actions of other partners.


Any standardized partnership deed format should have the following clauses which are important from the firm point of view:

  • Names and Addresses of the firm and its main business;
  • Names and Addresses of all partners;
  • A contribution of the amount of capital by each partner;
  • The accounting period of the firm;
  • The date of commencement of partnership;
  • Rules regarding an operation of Bank Accounts;
  • Profit and loss sharing ratio;
  • The rate of interest on capital, loan, drawings, etc;
  • Mode of auditor’s appointment, if any;
  • Salaries, commission, etc, if payable to any partner;
  • The rights, duties, and liabilities of each partner;
  • Treatment of loss arising out of insolvency of one or more partners;
  • Settlement of accounts on the dissolution of the firm;
  • Method of a settlement of disputes among the partners;
  • Rules to be followed in case of admission, retirement, the death of a partner; and
  • Any other matter relating to the conduct of business. Normally, all the matters affecting the relationship of partners amongst themselves are covered in partnership deed.

As such there is no such standardized format of Partnership Deed, all the relevant topics should get covered in the partnership deed & same should be signed by all the partners.

A partnership is defined as two or more people joining together to launch a business with the purpose of sharing earnings and losses. And the company they ran under the name of the registered firm is known as a “Partnership Firm.” Partners are the individuals who join forces to create a partnership.

A written agreement between two or more parties that requires them to conduct business as a partnership company is known as a partnership deed. It is the most significant document since it contains the firm’s terms and conditions. The obligations, rights, liabilities, and other business-related information are also included. On the basis of this document, all of the business’s operations between all of the partners have been decided.

As per The old Companies Act,1956 there was a limitation on the maximum number of the member that is for banking business it’s 10 & for non-banking business its 20.
The deed was made with the intention of setting out the clear business intention & role of partners & to express the business requirements in a precise form on the paper. As the written document is more valid than the oral one.
Although it is not required for partnerships to be registered, doing so is always a good idea. The simple explanation for registration is that registered partnership businesses have certain additional legal protections over unregistered firms. It is important to remember that registering with the Income Tax Department differs from registering a business with the Registrar of Firms. All businesses are required to register for income tax.
There is no specific time is given to do registration for the partnership firm. A partnership firm can get registered at any time that is at the beginning or at while business is in continuation.
A Partnership Deed is a written document which gives all the important aspects which are important from the business point of view. The minimum requirement is of Rs.200 on non-judicial stamp paper.

Although registration of a partnership business is not required, as is common knowledge, there are several benefits that may only be obtained by registered partnership firms. The following is a list of them:
It is simpler to approach the court for resolution when there is a disagreement between partners, between a business and partners, between ex-partners and a firm, or between ex-partners and current partners.
It is simpler to bring a claim against a third party if the business is registered.

If a third party sues the company, the company may always attempt to have the claim set off, indicating that the third party owes the company money.

These are the main advantages that registered businesses may only enjoy.

It is absolutely of no issue if the firm did not register. There is no reflection on the functioning of the business. The only thing is that the firm will not be able to enjoy some benefits which are available for the registered firms.
As every coin has two sides there are also some benefits which are only enjoyed by unregistered firms. They are as follows:
An unregistered firm cannot file a suit in the court of law
An unregistered firm does not hold any right even for criminal cases to file in a court of law.
In case if any dispute has arisen between the partners or between partners & firm or between partners & ex-partners, there is no right to the any of the above to refer the dispute to the court of law for resolution.

If the partnership agreement itself is silent, the partnership will continue and the surviving partner will be able to replace the deceased partner. However, if such a clause is absent from the Deed, the Partnership is dissolved.
