Partnership is an association of two or more persons to carry on a business in the capacity of co-owners. Each such person is called a partner. All the partners share the profits and losses in proportion of their respective ownership, or as agreed between them.

Like Proprietorship firm, the Partnership also does not possess any individual legal entity on its own and therefore the liability of all partners in this case is unlimited. Likewise, all the partners are liable for any wrongdoing in the partnership firm without particular reference to individual partners.
