About this document

This Deed of Retirement will officially relieve a partner from his responsibilities in a partnership. The document has been drawn to address a situation where the retiring partner leaves voluntarily – there are set procedures if the partner is forced to leave.

The document is fit for use in any kind of partnership business – service, trading or manufacturing irrespective of size of the business or industry type.

This document comes with a supplementary document in the form of a letter of resignation from the outgoing partner, which is helpful in retaining and saving the bonafide character of the arrangement and is useful as a safeguard to a potential post retirement dispute being raised in a court of law by the retiring partner.
