If a company turns a profit, its partners are entitled to receive a share of said profits in the form of interest on their contributions and fees.
In profit-seeking companies, partners are entitled to a share of the profit earned.
In general and limited partnerships, the partners are entitled to interest on their contributions and fees, if this is stipulated in the partnership agreement. This interest can also be paid throughout the fiscal year, even if the company’s bottom line has fallen in the red. As long as the partnership agreement does not stipulate otherwise, all the partners are, in principle, entitled to the same share of profit.
