Form a new Limited Partnership in Ontario Division and Distribution of Partnership Profits

A Limited Partnership is formed in Ontario according to the statutes of the Ontario Limited Partnership Act. A limited partnership is a partnership governed by statute and any governing documents agreed to between the parties (e.g. limited partnership agreement).

Absent an agreement, partners equally share in the capital and profits (as determined by the firm’s auditors/accountants) of the business and contribute equally towards the losses (see s. 24(1) of the Act). It is important to carefully consider both (a) the manner in which profits/losses will be shared among the partners (whether by simple percentage, detailed formula or other quantitative or qualitative methodologies) and (b) the timing of distribution of profits (whether as regular draws or periodic distributions) (see below also). It is important to consider (with the partnership’s tax advisors) the timing in which partners are deemed to have received their share of partnership profits and required to pay taxes/tax installments in respect of same so that distributions of profit can be coordinated with the timing of the payment of tax liabilities by individual partners, etc.
