General partnerships operated under the Partnerships Act 1890 are common in family farming businesses but are operated across other businesses.

It is recommended that partners acting in partnership have a partnership agreement which sets out specifically the terms in which the partnership is to operate, but some partnerships will operate ‘at will’ and will simply be governed by the Partnership Act 1890.

The purpose of this virtual classroom seminar is to look at some of the main aspects of the operation of a partnership including the ownership of heritable property and how the changes in the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 may affect partnerships and oblige them to register under the Trust Registration Service.

The intended audience are those who act for partnerships. The primary focus will be farming partnerships, but it would appeal to anyone who acts for general partnerships formed under the Partnerships Act 1890.
