  • General partnership – A partnership in which all associates participate fully in the operation of the business, are equally liable for all actions, and share equally in profits and losses, regardless of the actual contributions made.
  • Limited partnership – A partnership in which one party (made up of one or more people) called general partners, having unlimited liability, manage the business and, another party (of one or more people) called limited partners, contribute capital and share in the profits.
  • Limited liability company – A company in which the members and managers aren’t liable for a debt or obligation of the company.
