What is the Partnership Act 1890?

Business partnerships are regulated under a little known law from 1890 – The Partnership Act. Under the Act a ‘partnership’ is formed when two or more people join together in business to share a profit. This does not include LLPs (Limited Liability Partnerships) or Limited Partnerships. This can be established by an oral contract or simply by conduct. It is possible, therefore, to enter into a partnership as defined by this act without meaning to. These inadvertent partnerships are referred to as ‘Partnerships at Will’ and are governed by the Partnership Act 1890.

At Lawson-West a few of our clients have experienced this, it is never simple to solve, and we want to educate individuals and help to mitigate this risk.
