Partnership, Finance Basics

Partnership

Definition -Partnership may be defined as a relationship between persons carrying on a business in common with a view of profits. In partnership business, two or more persons jointly run a business. The liability of the individual partner is unlimited unless the partnership agreement provides for any limitations. A partnership consists of not more than twenty persons except in certain cases e.g. practicing lawyers, professional accountants, and members of the stock exchange where this figure can be exceeded. Normally, the number of partners in a partnership business varies from two to five partners. In a case of banking business the number of banking partners is limited to ten.

In Kenya all partnerships are formed in accordance with Partnership Act of 1934 (Chap 29). The name of the partnership must be registered first under the Registration of Business Act. The formation of partnership is not very complicated.
