Forming a Partnership
Partnerships are usually registered with the state in which they do business, but the requirement to register varies from state to state.
Partnerships use a partnership agreement to clarify the relationship between the partners, the roles and responsibilities of the partners, and their respective shares in the profits or losses of the partnership.
It is relatively easy to form a partnership, but, as noted above, the business must be registered with the state where the partners do business. Depending on the state, you may have the choice of one or more of the types of partnerships mentioned above. Once you have registered with your state, you can then proceed to the other typical tasks in starting a business.
