A partnership is created between two or more partners and a partnership agreement is prepared which defines the responsibilities of each partner.

We will describe below an initial process to register a partnership and taxation:

Registration Process of A Partnership:

  • Partnership is a form of business in which two or more sound persons come together to form a new business with the same interest in mind. In Partnership, all partners act towards the single strategic direction and all partners are liable according to their ownership.
  • In partnership all partners share profit and losses in the ratio agreed upon. Partners are responsible for the other partner's business actions, as well as their own.
  • Each general partner takes part in the management of the business, and also takes responsibility for the liabilities of the business.
  • A partnership is registered with the state or county that depends on your state. For example; California partnership registration is filed with a county clerk's office, whereas, the state of Florida partnership registration is filed with the Florida Secretary of State.
  • Some states require to run legal notices also to file a partnership and the state of California is one of the states.
  • An employer identification is required to file a partnership which is applied to the Internal Revenue Service.

A bank generally asks the partnership certificate, partnership agreement and the employer identification number to open a bank account.

Can A Non US Resident Create A Partnership?

Generally, most states do not allow a Non US Resident to register a business as a partnership because to register a partnership in the USA requires a service of process address, and the registered agent service provider does not serve to a sole proprietorship.

How does a partnership file taxes?

A partnership transfers profit and loss to all partners end of the year and each partner is required to report income and loss on the income tax return. Partnership taxes are paid in the year it was earned and cannot be transferred to the future years. Each partner files a Form 1040.

Does a partnership file an annual report, biennial report, statement of information or Decennial Filings?

No, A partnership does not file any of the above mentioned reports other than renewing on or before the due date.

Can I partnership convert to a corporation or a limited liability company?

Likely not convert able, the county clerks' offices and the secretary of states do not allow a conversion or domestication or a partnership.

Can a partnership file a name change?

A name amendment is not allowed rather a new partnership is filed with a new name and it does not carry the history of an existing partnership.
