What a Partnership Means
A partnership is a business organization with two or more persons as owners. Partnerships are governed by state laws, and a new partnership is registered with the state where it will be doing business. Each partner shares in the organization’s profits (and losses) and may share in the business operations decisions. 1
For tax purposes, the partners are taxed, not the business itself. That is, the partners pay their share of the taxes based on their share of the partnership, through their personal tax returns2.1

Before You Go Into a Partnership
Before you decide on who will join you in a partnership, you should check out these potential partners. Even if you have known someone from kindergarten, it’s a good idea to make sure they are good partner material. That means, for each potential partner:
Doing a credit check on each partner. Use one or more of the credit agencies (Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion) to run a credit check.
Check the person’s online presence. What social media does this person use? What types of activities or photos do they post? Is there something you wouldn’t want clients or customers to see?
Do a personality test on each partner. A personality test like the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator can help you look at partners and potential issues with interactions.
What do you need from a partner?
People become partners for all sorts of reasons. They enjoy working collaboratively. They complement each other’s skills. They don’t have the money to start a business on their own. They don’t have access to the types of clients they want to attract.
You improve your chances of forming a successful partnership if you consider what you need from your business partner. Perhaps you have top-notch design and money-management instincts, but you dislike networking, sales, and negotiating. Or, you might have great connections but need a partner to help you ensure that the technical requirements and design specifications are written and carried out correctly.
Collaborating with a partner? Here’s how to make each other’s lives easier
Before you seek a partner, give yourself time to assess the design and business skills at which you excel and those you would not perform so well.
Finding a partner you trust and enjoy working with
When you imagine running a business with a partner, you may have a specific person in mind, such as a friend, colleague, or family member. Even if you know and trust that person in one context, you don’t necessarily know whether a business partnership with that person will work until you explore the details of your partnership.
Discussing the following topics with your prospective partner can be a great way to discover how well you’re actually suited for each other.
You want to know whether you both see the partnership as a long- or short-term endeavor. Also, do you have similar goals for growing the business into something bigger or maintaining a small-scale enterprise? Beyond your long-range commitment and business size, talk about the business brand you want to cultivate through your designs, customer service, marketing, and more. Your brand will reflect what you value as designers and professionals as well as individuals, so finding a partner whose style complements yours is important.
Division of duties
Write a list of all the day-to-day tasks that need to be done and talk about who will do what. Although most of the work you likely want to divide and conquer, you also need to think about what big-picture decisions you agree to make together and how you’ll communicate about your respective roles in the business without stepping on each other’s toes. (Checking out these tips for day-to-day collaboration with a partner can help you flesh out your list of tasks.)
With your list of duties in hand, you can add how much time you plan to devote to each one per week, month, or quarter. Unless your special skill is estimating the time needed for tasks, overestimate how much time you think you’ll need. Add up those hours and talk about how many hours you’re each willing and able to work. Will this business be a full-time job for both of you? If you have family responsibilities or other commitments that can take you away from the business, discuss what those are and how you will handle time conflicts.
Putting your agreement in writing
After talking about all aspects of your joint venture, you and your partner need to agree on one more thing: a legal partnership agreement. To create the legal foundation of your business partnership, this agreement covers how the partners will handle issues such as the following:
- Determining how much equity each partner has in the business
- Dividing profits
- Making decisions for the business
- Changing ownership by either including a new partner or enabling a partner to leave the business
- Resolving conflicts
