When two or more individuals engage in enterprise as co-owners, the organization is known as a partnership. This form of organization is popular among personal service enterprises, as well as in the legal and public accounting professions. The important features of and accounting procedures for partnerships are discussed and illustrated below. As ownership rights in a partnership are divided among two or more partners, separate capital and drawing accounts are maintained for each partner. If a partner invested cash in a partnership, the Cash account of the partnership is debited, and the partner's capital account is credited for the invested amount.

Ordinary Partnerships: Partner's Share of Paid-up Capital Pursuant to subsection 61 5 , each corporate partner must include in the computation of paid-up capital, its share of those liabilities and other amounts of the partnership or joint venture that would otherwise be included in the paid-up capital of a corporation. For example, a mortgage liability of the partnership would normally be attributed to each partner in proportion to the profit-sharing ratio of each partner in the partnership.
Limited Partnerships: Partner's Share of Paid-up Capital Clauses 61 5 c and d provide for similar rules to be applied to taxpayers investing in limited partnerships. Each corporate general and limited partner must include in computing paid-up capital, its share of those limited partnership liabilities and other amounts that would be components of the paid-up capital of a corporation. Partners' shares, except for the share of a general partner, are to be determined by reference to the profit-sharing ratio of the limited partnership.
A general partner must report, in addition to its own share, the shares of noncorporate limited partners of the limited partnership who are: shareholders of the general partner members of such shareholders' family related to the general partner, or trusts, the beneficiaries of which are related to any of the above persons.
In a partnership that has more than one corporate general partner it may be that there is a non-corporate limited partner who is related to two general partners. Those two general partners must include in their calculation of paid-up capital their proportionate share of that limited partner's liabilities.
The proportions used derive from the profit-sharing ratios of the general partners in the limited partnership. This is illustrated in the numerical example in paragraph 7.
Definition of "Related" Subsection 2 of the Income Tax Act Canada provides a definition describing the circumstances under which a person or persons are considered to be related. Pursuant to clause 1 1 a , this definition applies for purposes of subsection 61 5. Under that definition, an individual limited partner who is, for example, the controlling shareholder of the parent company of a corporate general partner, is related to that general partner.
Profit-Sharing Ratio The paid-up capital of the partnership determined as if it were a corporation is allocated to each partner in the same proportion as the share of the profits to which the partner is entitled under the partnership agreement. The paid-up capital of the partnership is allocated to the partners using the "profit-sharing ratio" even if the partnership agreement provides for a different ratio "loss-ratio" , in situations where the partnership has no profit or incurs a loss in the year.
Partnership's Financial Statements Corporations that have entered into a partnership or joint venture agreement must enclose the complete partnership or joint venture financial statements with their tax returns. Paid-up capital is measured at the close of the taxation year of the taxpayer corporation. When the fiscal year of the partnership does not coincide with the taxation year of the corporate partner there may be hardship in obtaining a partnership balance sheet at the close of the corporate partner's taxation year.
In such instances a corporation should include in its taxable capital for a year its share of partnership taxable liabilities for those partnerships whose year end falls within the taxation year of the corporation. For example, a partnership's fiscal year may run from April 1, to March 31, whereas the corporate partner's taxation year may end on December 31, The Corporations Tax Branch Branch would prefer a partnership balance sheet as at December 31, , but where this is not available, the partnership balance sheet as at March 31, is acceptable for capital tax purposes.
Using the March 31, balance sheet for reporting the partnerships' "liabilities" for capital tax purposes matches the reporting of the partnerships' income for income tax purposes. For taxation years ending prior to May 20, , when the fiscal year of the partnership did not coincide with the taxation year of the corporate partner and where financial statements coinciding with the corporation's year end were not prepared, previous Branch policy was to accept partnership financial statements at the date "closest" to the taxation year end of the corporate partner.
Corporations that filed prior to based on the "closest" fiscal year of the partnership and that have consistently filed on the same basis thereafter, are permitted by the Branch to continue such filing.
The Branch's acceptance of partnership financial statements falling within the corporate taxation year is based on administrative policy. This policy applies for most corporations. However, in cases where the difference in year ends between the corporation and the partnership results in a substantial reduction in a corporation's capital tax liability, the Branch reserves the right to request that a corporate partner compute its share of partnership capital based on partnership financial statements prepared as at the corporate partner's year end.
Partnership Eligible Investments The CTA does not permit a corporate partner to claim an investment allowance on that partner's share of eligible investments of the partnership. The partners of a partnership each have an interest in the partnership itself but not in any specific assets of the partnership.
This is especially true for limited partners of limited partnerships where the general partner has exclusive control of all the partnership assets until such time as the partnership is dissolved.
However, as an administrative concession, the Branch allows a corporate partner general partner or limited partner to claim an investment allowance on its share of any qualifying investments of the partnership. This share is the same proportion as the partner's share of the partnership paid-up capital and is added to the corporate partner's own eligible investments. Partnership Total Assets Pursuant to subsection 62 3 , the corporate partner's share of the partnership's "total assets" based on the profit-sharing ratio should be added to the partner's own "total assets" and a deduction made from "total assets" for the amount of "investment in the partnership" shown on the corporate partner's balance sheet.
If a corporation is a member of a partnership or a "connected partnership", subsections 68 3 and 69 4 require that the corporation's share, as well as the share of related partners, of the taxable paid-up capital of the partnership or connected partnership be added to the taxable paid-up capital of the corporation when calculating whether the overall taxable paid-up capital falls within the above limits for an exemption from or reduction in capital tax. Subsection 69 5 provides the rules for determining whether a partnership of which the corporation was a member is connected with another partnership.
The corporation's share of taxable paid-up capital of the partnership or connected partnership that is added to the corporation's taxable paid-up capital is computed using the last fiscal period of the partnership or connected partnership ending in the corporation's taxation year.
For purposes of this exemption, pursuant to subsection 69 1 , a corporate partner must add to its own "gross revenue" and "total assets" the corporation's share in the partnership's "gross revenue" and "total assets" for the fiscal period of the partnership ending in or coinciding with the taxation year of the corporation.
Consistent with the definition of total assets in subsection 62 3 , total assets are reduced by the corporation's investment in the partnership. Ontario's Fiscal Cycle. Ontario's Economy.

Accounting for partnerships vs corporations involves the same basic steps. Both must track revenue and expenses, file payroll reports if they have employees, account for inventory, pay property taxes and comply with any safety or environmental regulations that apply. The two critical differences between partnership and corporate accounting involve income taxes and equity accounts. One key difference between partnerships and corporations is how taxes are handled. Corporations must compute federal income tax on earnings, file the appropriate reports and remit payment. When a corporation distributes funds, the individuals receiving these distributions are liable for personal income tax. From a corporate accounting point of view, corporations must track income tax liabilities, make periodic deposits, if required, and at year-end, issue s to stockholders receiving dividends and W-2s to officers or employees receiving salaries.
There are three relatively common partnership types: general partnership GP , limited partnership LP and limited liability partnership LLP. A fourth, the limited liability limited partnership LLLP , is not recognized in all states. There are often distinct reasons why business owners choose each of these partnership types, which are explained below. General partnerships, limited partnerships and limited liability partnerships are all taxed the same. No tax is paid by the partnership. Keep in mind that general partnerships offer no liability protection to the owners. The owners are legally considered the same as the business, and personal assets can therefore be considered business assets.
