Also because there was no partnership agreement to say that the business could continue and be taken over by my client after the death of his partner, the years they had both invested in the construction of the business were lost. The store had to close and my client had to start starting a new business again. In my case study, it took me almost 3 years for business to grow. Accounts were to be established at the time of the deceased partner`s death (liquidation account), for each period of annual settlement after death (while the transaction was settled) and the liquidation of accounts relating to the financial situation at the time of the actual liquidation of the business.

It is possible to create a partnership without a formal written partnership agreement and to rely on tacit agreement on many issues (i.e. to rely on a behavioural path), but certainly not desirable. Sometimes I have to remind my professional clients that they want to buy insurance for things they like and, for example, protect their family home, car/auto/s insurance, etc. They thus cover the risk of loss through annual premiums for a very long time. I draw attention to the fact that their activity is what generates their financial well-being and that it should not be protected in any other way.
However, the point I am saying clearly is that the cost of creating a strong partnership agreement is relatively low compared to the assurances I mentioned. The reason is that a robust agreement usually lasts many years, but requires only one payment in the form of legal fees. A small price to pay for peace of mind and avoid what could be an exhausting nightmare Even with a partnership contract in place, you can still close the partnership. If you do not wish to continue the operation without your partner, you may want to consider selling the business. You can liquidate the assets and distribute them accordingly. Alternatively, you can bring an heir to your partner`s estate to replace it. The partnership agreement can (and should) also have provisions on what happens when a partner dies. In most cases, partnerships involve buying from a partner after death, because partners do not necessarily want to deal with a person`s family members.
Therefore, the redemption rules can be described in detail in the agreement. A partnership is an association of individuals who come together to run a business.
