The Florida partnership agreement is a legal document that defines all the details of how the business partners will operate within the business entity.

The partnership agreement, or articles of partnership, is often used when applying for loans from financial institutions or in the process of business expansion since potential investors often want to see the existing relationship in the business partnership before investing.

In Florida, this document is also commonly called the “partnership contract” or the “partnership deed.”
