Closure of Partnership Firm

2450* Basic Package



Closing a Partnership Firm

A partnership firm in India is an entity that has sole purpose of having profit from the business. In a partnership firm, two or more than two parties collaborate with a legal agreement to establish a business. This legal agreement is known as partnership Deed. Once the partners achieve the purpose, they decide to wrap up the partnership firm. In such cases, the firm is dissolved, and the partnership comes to an end.

Once the partnership firm shuts, all its affairs can be wind up by selling the assets. It leads to the payment of the liabilities and discharging the claims of the partners. The closure of partnership among all the partners of a firm is known as the closure of the partnership firm. This is usually initiated by signing a dissolution agreement between the partners. 

Modes of closing a partnership firm in India

Closure with the intervention of the court

When the closure of the company is initiated by one of the partners by suing any other partner, then the court involves itself. But a court in India can only conclude a partnership firm if the partnership is listed with the registrar of firms. Thus, any unregistered partnership entity cannot be dissolved by the court.

In such cases, the court may intervene and help in closing the company when one of the partners becomes incapable of carrying out his responsibility. On the other hand, if a company's partner is guilty of misconduct that may harm the business, or in case of a repeated breach in partnership, the court can intervene and help in closing the partnership.  

Closure without the intervention of the court

Mostly all the partnership firm closes through the closure agreement between the partners. In this mode, all the partners of a company come forward and sins an agreement that indicated the closure of the company. Such a closure involves the mutual settlement of all the pending liabilities. The partners also settle all the accounts among them. Thus, in this mode, there is no third party intervention. The closure without third party interference may happen due to numerous reasons such as:

1) Insolvency among the partners

2) Unlawful business practiced by one of the partners in the name of partnership firm

3) In case of the term of the partnership expires

4) Death of one of the partners

5) Resignation of the partner 

It can also be done when one of the partners sends notice in writing to another for dissolution
