Partnership Firm

The law relating to partnership firm in India is prescribed in the Indian Partnership Act of 1932. This Act lays down the rights and duties of the partners between themselves and other legal relations between partners and third persons, which are incidental to the formation of a partnership. Thus, the Act establishes the position of a partner as well as a partnership firm vis-à-vis third parties, in legal and contractual relations arising out of and in the course of the business of a partnership firm. In this article, we look at the various aspects of running a partnership firm in India in detail.


A partnership is a relationship between individuals who have agreed to share the profits of a business carried on by all or any one of them acting for all as stated in Section 4 of the Indian Partnership Act. Therefore, a partnership consists of three essential elements.

  • A partnership must be a result of an agreement between two or more individuals.
  • The agreement must be built to share the profits obtained from the business.
  • The business must be run by all or any of them representing the rest.

All these conditions must coexist before a partnership can come into existence.

Essential Elements of a Partnership

Some key elements are required for the formation of a Partnership. They are listed below with a brief explanation.

An Agreement

An agreement from which a partnership relationship arises may be expressed. It may also be implied from the Partnership Act done by the partners and from a consistent course of conduct being followed, showing a mutual understanding between them. This agreement may be oral or in writing.

Sharing Profit of Business

there must be a business that exists. For this purpose, the term ‘business’ would generally mean every trade, occupation, and profession. The existence of a company is crucial. The motive of a business is the “acquisition of gains” that leads to the formation of a partnership. So, there can be no partnership where there is no intention to carry on a business and to share the profits obtained from the same. For example, co-owners who share the rent derived from a piece of land are not considered partners as a business does not exist. Similarly, no charitable institution or club may be called a partnership. However, a Joint Stock Company may be floated as a partnership for non-economic purposes.

Types of Partnership

Partnership at will

A partnership by will is a partnership where there is no provision made by contract between the partners for the duration of their partnership, or the determination of their partnership.

Particular Partnership

A particular partnership is when a person becomes a partner with another individual in a particular business enterprise or for a particular business venture or undertaking, such as the construction of a road, laying a railway line, etc. This sort of partnership shall come to an end on the completion of the task for which it was initially formed.

Types of Partners

Active/ Actual/ Ostensible Partner

When a partner of a partnership firm,

  • has become a partner by an agreement.
  • actively participates in the conduct of the partnership.

The partner of the firm acts as a representative of other partners for all the acts carried out in the usual business lifecycle of the business. In the event of a retirement of a partner, the person must give a public notice to absolve himself of their liabilities for acts carried out by the other partners after his retirement.

Sleeping or Dormant Partner

A Sleeping or a Dormant Partner is a partner

  • who is a partner by agreement;
  • who does not actively take part in the conduct of the business.

These partners share their profits and losses and are liable to third parties for the business carried out by the partnership firm. However, they are not required to give public notice of their retirement from the partnership firm.

Nominal Partner

A nominal partner is an individual who lends his name to the partnership form. When this is done without having any real interest in the business, the person is a nominal partner. This kind of a partner is not entitled to share the profits of the firm. This partner has neither invested in the firm nor takes part in how the business is run at the firm. Although, such a partner is liable to third parties for all the actions taken by the firm.

Partner in Profits only

This is a partner who is entitled to have a share of the profits without being liable to the losses. This kind of a partner is liable to third parties only for acts of the gain.


A Sub-partner is a partner in a partnership firm who agrees to share his profits in a partnership firm with an outsider to the firm. A sub-partner does not hold any right against the firm nor is liable to any debts caused by the firm.

Incoming partners

This is a partner who is admitted as a partner into an already existing firm with the consent from all the other existing partners. Such a partner is not liable for any acts of the form taken before his entry as a partner to the firm.

Outgoing Partner

An outgoing partner is a partner who leaves the firm in which the rest of the partners continue to carry on the business. Such a partner remains liable to third parties for all the actions taken by the firm until a public notice concerning his retirement is given.

Partner by holding out (Section 28)

Partnership by holding out is also called as a partnership by estoppel. This is when an individual holds himself out as a partner or allows others to do so, the person is then stopped from denying the character he has assumed and upon the faith of which creditors may be presumed to have acted. When an individual represents himself or knowingly permits himself, to be represented as a partner in a partnership firm (when in fact he is not) he is liable, like a partner in the firm to anyone who on the faith of such representation, had given credit to the firm.

An individual may themselves, by their words or conduct has induced other to believe that they are a partner or they may have allowed others to represent them a partner. The result in both the situations is identical.
