A Partnership is an arrangement where parties, known as partners, agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests. The partners in a partnership may be individuals, businesses, interest based organizations, schools, government or combinations. Organizations may partner together to increase the likelihood of each achieving their mission and to amplify their reach. A partnership may result in issuing and holding equity or may be only governed by a contract.
Business: two or more companies join in a joint venture or a consortium to i) work on a project (e.g. industrial or research project) which would be to heavy or too risky for a single entity, ii) join forces to have a stronger position to a market, iii) comply with specific regulations (e.g. in some emerging countries, foreigners can only invest in the form of partnership with local entrepreneurs). In this case, the alliance may be structured in a process comparable to a mergers & acquisitions transaction. Politics (or geopolitics): In what is usually called an alliance, government may partners to achieve their national interests, sometimes against allied governments holding contrary interests, as occurred during World War II and the cold war.
Knowledge: In education, accrediting agencies increasingly evaluate schools, or universities, by the level and quality of their partnerships with local or international peers and a variety of other entities across societal sectors.
Individuals: Some partnerships occur at personal level, such as when two or more individuals agree to domicile together, while other partnerships are not only personal, but private, known only to the involved parties.
Note: These above benefits cannot be availed by an unregistered partnership firm. Hence in view of these consequences, it is advisable to get the firm registered.
