Partnerships can be divided into two parts –
1. Simple Partnership : All partners here invest their respective capital for the same time. Therefore, the profit or loss received from the business in such a partnership is divided among the proportion of the capital invested by the partners.
2. Compound Partnership: In this, all partners place their respective capital in the business for different times, hence the profits gained by the business in this partnership or the capital imposed by the partners. The profit or loss is divided into proportion to the product of time and investment.
