CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Generally when a proprietor finds it’s difficult to handle the problems of expansion, he thinks of taking a partner. In other words, once a business grows beyond the capacity of a sole proprietorship  and  or  a  Joint  Hindu  Family,  it  becomes  unarguably  necessary  to  form partnership. It means that partnership grows out of the limitations of oneā€man business in terms of limited financial resources, limited managerial ability and unlimited risk. Partnership represents the second stage in the evolution of ownership forms.

In simple words, a Partnership is an association of two or more individuals who agree to carry on business together for the purpose of earning and sharing of profits.  However a formal definition is provided by the Partnership Act of 1932.

According to Banaji (2007) a partnership is an arrangement where parties, known as partners, agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests. The partners in a partnership may be individuals, businesses, interest-based organizations, schools, governments or combinations.

A partnership is an arrangement where parties, known as partners, agree to cooperate to advance their mutual interests. The partners in a partnership may be individuals, businesses, interest-based organizations, schools, governments or combinations. Organizations may partner together to increase the likelihood of each achieving their mission and to amplify their reach. A partnership may result in issuing and holding equity or may be only governed by a contract. According to Njoku C.V and Nwosu A.N (2010), Partnership is a form of business in which two or more persons share ownership. It is a legal association of two or more persons as co-owners of a business for profit. The Company and Allied Matters Act, (CAMA) 1990, stipulates that membership in a partnership is between two and twenty. However this restriction does not apply to legal practitioners and accountants.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

One of the most fundamental problems currently militating against the success of businesses under the umbrella of partnership is simply the failure of leadership (Chukwuemeka, ( 2006). Ugwu (2009) argues that, many Partnership businesses are very often confrontational in the approach to issues which affect them as a group, such as the leadership and management, even partners not fulfilling some of the contracts between it and the workers.  In their most basic form, some partners enjoy a fixed share of the partnership (usually, but not always an equal share with the other partners). However, in more sophisticated partnerships, different models exist for determining either ownership or profit distribution (or both). The major problems of this of partnership form of business are that some partner feels like they carrying the bulk of the workload (or a partner is falling down on the job) and also when expectations are not being met it brings a huge challenges to the to the group and most especially when a partner has lost interest in the business or changed thinking.
