The contract will form the basis for your cooperation, and thus you will be able to refer to it if a dispute should arise. In addition, a partnership contract will give you an overview of your cooperation and the agreement on the actual operation of your joint company. Since an I/S is a personal form of business, you are personally, unlimitedly and jointly liable. This means that the company’s creditors have the opportunity to pursue their claims by going after the stakeholders personally.
