The Vermont partnership agreement is a legal document that serves as the formalization of the agreement between two or more partners with the common goal of establishing a business partnership.

The partnership agreement, or the articles of partnership, usually include information about partners, their initial contribution to the partnership, and their management, voting, and profit-sharing rights based on their contribution. This prevents potential misunderstandings and disputes between the partners.

The partnership agreement is also referred to as the partnership contract or the partnership deed.
