At the initial formation of a business partnership, the Partnership Agreement contains mutually approved rules and guidelines of the partnership.
Not unlike a constitutional amendment, or any other amendments, if you have to make any changes to the original agreement, you would use a Partnership Amendment to accomplish this. Once again, per the constitutional amendment example, you are allowed to have multiple amendments, so long as you can get the other partners to go along.
Every time you add an amendment to the Partnership Agreement, the amendment becomes part of the agreement.
An amendment could be as simple as a decision to use another banking institution, agreed on by all partners. Similarly, if a partner alters their contributions, you may need to add an amendment to the original agreement.
Depending on your state, a Partnership Amendment may also be known as:
Partnership Agreement Amendment
Business Partnership Amendment
Amendment of Partnership Contract
Amendment to Articles of Partnership
As said, you may have to make changes to what’s agreed upon in your business partnership. In that event, you will use a Partnership Amendment form. Typical scenarios include changes to the number of partners (leaving or joining) or changes to the distribution of profits or losses.
