MCQ Partnership

When two or more people agree to build an enterprise and share its gains and losses, they are said to be in partnership. The Indian Partnership Act 1932 states partnership as the ‘association between an individual who has agreed to share the profits of an enterprise carried on by every partner.

People who have entered into a partnership with one another are independently termed as ‘partners’ and comprehensively termed as ‘firm’. The name under which the trade is carried is called the ‘name of the firm’. A partnership enterprise has no distinct legal entity, apart from the partners comprising it.
