The Virginia business partnership is a legal document that outlines the essential details of the relationship between the partners within the business partnership.

Partners often choose to draft the partnership agreement or the partnership contract to minimize the possibility of any misunderstandings and disputes in the future since the document outlines all the important details about the partnership and its operation.

These are often the details about each partner's initial investment in the partnership, as well as their management, voting, and profit-sharing rights within the partnership.

The Virginia partnership agreement is also called the “articles of partnership” or “partnership deed.”
