The Arizona partnership agreement is a legal document used by the business partners to define their rights and duties in their business organization.
The form of the partnership agreement, or partnership deed, will largely depend on the business model that the partners have and the federal and state laws that regulate the business formation.
This document will then formalize all the details regarding the decision-making process, the distribution of profit and loss, the capital contribution of each partner, and more.
When referring to the partnership agreement, people often use terms like “partnership contract” or “articles of partnership.”
