Are you interested in starting up a small business as a partnership, or do already have a small or medium sized enterprise and want to bring in someone new as a partner? If you answered yes to either of these questions then there are certain legal partnership agreement that you will need to consider.
What Constitutes a Partnership?
A partnership is when two or more people decide to go into business together and equally share in its profits. Because it is relatively easy to set up, partnerships are a very popular way to form a business. All partners involved are considered self-employed. It is widely advised that such business set-ups be governed by partnership contracts.
Unlike other business structures, the legal entities consist only of the partners (no shareholders, etc.). Should something unfortunate happen to the partnership (bankruptcy, resignation or death of a partner), the partnership must be dissolved. In this scenario, a partnership dissolution agreement is advised. However, the business can continue to function whilst a new structure is put into place.
Partnership Agreements and Liability
Unlike a limited partnership, all persons in a partnership are liable for any debts or liability that may occur from the business. In Northern Ireland, partners are not severally liable. This means that no one partner has to pay off the entire debt. However, should a partner resign, the remaining partners may be liable for the debt thath remains. In the case of insolvency, creditors can go after the assets of any or all partners.
Because of these legalities, it is best that you research the proper partnership agreement.
How Do I Set Up a Partnership?
There are several recommended steps to follow in order to form a successful business partnership. Listed below are some of the most important factors you should consider.
Create a business plan.
Enter in a legal business partnership agreement. Standard partnership documents are available online.
Have your financing worked out, open a bank account, and obtain the services of an accountant.
If you use your own name, you wont need to register. However, most do not which necessitates registering the name of the business with the Business Names Register at the Companies Registration Office.
If you plan to hire employees, its necessary that you become acquainted with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act of 2005.
Find out if you need to obtain a business license to legally run the business. In Ireland, enterprises that always require a business license include pubs, employment agencies and driving schools.
Register for all the taxes; VAT, PAYE and Income Tax.
Find a suitable location from which to run your business.
Consider the types of insurance you will require (liability, fire, etc.).

Question by Bryan A: how do i write a legal contract for a real estate partnership.?
this partnership is a joint venture with 10 other people. a sample contract or form would help.
Answer by Bookworm
Hire a lawyer and get it done right. If you go to an office supply store or a bookstore and get one of those pre-made forms, you’re just begging for trouble. I have seen that happen firsthand. This is a case when you want to get an attorney to draw one up for you, especially when you have so many people involved.
