The Kansas partnership agreement is a legal document that defines all the details of how the business partners will operate within the business entity. It will define their contributions, rights, and responsibilities towards 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. Third parties and potential investors will often require the partners to see the partnership agreement and get to know the operations inside the business partnership before investing in or giving a loan to the business entity.

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