Document Overview

This partner retirement deed is suitable for when one partner is no longer a member of the partnership and there are continuing members of the partnership. It is important to document the agreed terms under which a partner retires from a partnership to ensure clarity and avoid potential disputes in the future.

What are the benefits of having a Partner Retirement Deed?

  • A partner retirement deed provides clarity and certainty for both the retiring partner and the remaining partners, ensuring that everyone is aware of their rights and obligations following the retirement, helping to avoid disputes or misunderstandings down the line.

  • It can help to ensure a smooth transition for the partnership by providing a clear process for the retiring partner to exit the partnership and for the remaining partners to continue operating the business.

  • By having a partner retirement deed in place, the risk of litigation and disputes related to the retirement is minimised. This can save the partnership time and money that would otherwise be spent on legal fees.

  • It can help protect the interests of both the retiring partner and the remaining partners by ensuring that each party is treated fairly.

Use this Partner Retirement Deed if:

  • You are part of a business partnership and wish to voluntarily withdraw as a partner. 

  • This document should only be used if a business partnership will remain in operation after the individual’s withdrawal.
