Partnerships, Business Law and Ethics


               A partnership is defined by s.3(1) of the Partnership Act   as "the relation which subsists between persons carrying on a business in common with a view of profit". This is a definition of the relation that exists between the  individual persons who are trading as partners, rather than a definition of the apparent entity called a partnership. A partnership is not a body corporate and, being legally non-existent, cannot carry on a business. Section 6 of the Act states that persons who have entered into partnership with one another, are called collectively a firm, and the name under which their business is carried on is called the firm-name.
