Pay the required registration fee at the time of submission of your partnership form. This can usually be paid by cheque, credit card or payment order. However, as with all other things, you need to log in to your state before depositing the payment, as not all states accept all payment methods. Create a partnership agreement. Several forms are available online as a proposed starting point. As a general rule, the social contract should include the full legal name of each partner, the name of the company, the percentage of capital that each partner contributes, how profits are distributed, how new partners are admitted and how to end the partnership. Partnership agreements provide each partner with a legal document that they can rely on in case of major problems. Ask the office of the Minister of Foreign Affairs for a „Doing Business as“ or A DBA form that you must submit to claim your company name. You must submit it separately from your partnership agreement following your state`s instructions. Contact the Secretary of State`s office in your state to ask for documents related to the creation of a partnership. Note that there are different types of partnerships. Most often is a general partnership contract, a pact in which at least two people agree to start a business. You can also create a limited partnership which is a company that is only involved in one project if you do not expect it to be a long-term activity.
