articles of partnership


articles of partnership
the agreement between the partners establishing the partnership. The matters normally dealt with in articles of partnership are the firm's name, the duration of the partnership, capital and provision for dissolution. Many provisions of the Partnership Act 1890 apply only in the absence of any agreement to the contrary, with the consequence that the articles may supersede provisions of the statute. In Scotland the term partnership agreement is usually used. See partnership.
