These include contacts, geographical location, reputation of a company or product, monopoly rights and development potential. If the partnership sold the company as continuous, that is, during trading, a certain amount would be paid for its goodwill. If the partnership ended its operations and sold only the other assets, it would achieve nothing for goodwill. The profits and losses of a partnership are distributed among the partners after the annual accounts have been agreed. The amount of profit to which each partner is entitled or the amount of loss to which it is responsible should be specified in the agreement. If the agreement does not specify the profit shares, the shareholders are entitled to equal shares of the profits. Within the framework of the partnership agreement, individuals undertake that each partner will contribute to the activity. Partners may agree to pay capital to the company in cash to cover start-up costs or equipment contributions, and services or ownership may be mortgaged under the Partnership Agreement. As a rule, these contributions determine the percentage of ownership of each partner in the company and, as such, these are important conditions in the partnership contract. . . .
