Partnership agreements in Hong Kong

The two parties that wish to enter into a partnership should conclude a partnership agreement. This document can be legally binding and will act as a guideline for each one’s rights and obligations during the duration of the partnership

The agreement can include details about the commencement date and duration, the place of business in Hong Kong, the development of business meetings and the individuals who will perform management duties, any limitations on authority, expulsion from the partnership and various other information about managing the business venture, such as banking arrangements between the partners. 

Small partnerships will typically have less stringent clauses and the agreement can be adjusted as per the needs of the founders and the particularities of the field in which the partnership will activate.
