Introduction to Partnerships and Partnership Taxation: profit sharing arrangements

Profits, losses or other income may be shared as the partners may mutually agree from time to time. Partners are free to agree the sharing ratios between them, although the allocation of profits or losses for an accounting period cannot be varied retrospectively after the end of that period (see BIM82055).
