Partnership is a business organization which two or more individuals manage and run a business. In this kind of partnership, risks, management, profits, and liabilities are divided equally amongst partners. There are two types of partnership that foreign investors can contribute to:
- Ordinary Partnership
- Limited Liability Partnership
Note: Foreign investors generally choose to have Limited Liability Partnership.
It is similar to Sole Trader business model. The only difference between Sole Trader and Ordinary Partnership is that, risks, profits and liabilities are divided equally amongst partners.
