1. Introduction to Partnership Firm:

A partnership is an arrangement between two or more people to oversee business operations and share its profits and losses. In a general partnership firm, all members share both profits and losses.

2. Understanding Partnership Firm:


Advantages of a partnership include that:

  • Two heads (or more) are better than one.
  • Your business is easy to establish and start-up costs are low.
  • More capital is available for the business.
  • The partners in a partnership firm get the benefit from risk sharing, unlike an individual in a proprietary firm whose liability can be unlimited
  • The most important benefit that arises from the registration is that when there are disputes between or among the partners, a partner can sue the other partners
  • Registration also enables the Partnership firm to sue third parties to enforce its claim
  • The dissolution procedure for a registered Partnership firm is reliable and quick


The most common sources of difficulties for business partners are disagreements over equality within the firm, in areas such as power, equity and workload. It’s important to find solutions to any business partner problems to allow your firm to perform at its best.
