If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, you may have dreamt of being your own boss someday or building a company from the ground up. Starting your own company or going into business with a partner is a major endeavor, not to be taken lightly. In a business partnership, you and your partner can split the profits any way you want, as long as you both agree to the terms of the arrangement. When business partners start a new company, they typically bring different skills and assets to the table.

    Different types of business contracts define terms of an arrangement, which can be between various parties. Business partners may enter into an agreement that defines their roles and responsibilities and the consequences if one partner leaves the company. The nature of that contract depends on whether the business partners are part of a limited liability corporation, partnership, or corporation. Another type of contract is an employee agreement, which outlines the roles and duties of the employment, salary and overtime pay, hours, paid time off (PTO), medical leave, healthcare benefits, as well as non-compete agreements.
