What is Guarantee of Profit to a Partner?

If the actual share in profits is less than the promised amount, then the deficit amount will be handled either by the firm or by any of the partner. There are various ‘Adjustments’ which an enterprise will do in such a scenario. If the actual share in gains is more than the minimum guarantee amount then the enterprise will furnish the actual gains to the partner.

Sometimes a partner is :

  • Admitted into the enterprise with a surety of certain minimal amount by way of his share in the profits of the firm
  • Such guarantee may be given by the former partners in a definite ratio or by any of the former partners, individually to the new partner or an associate
  • The minimal promised amount will be paid to such a novice partner when his share of gain as per the profit sharing ratio (PSR) is less than the promised amount
