Partnerships are fiscally transparent. This means that the partnership itself does not pay taxes on its profits. Instead, each partner is taxable on their share of the profits. There is no joint and several liability for the tax debts of other partners. Where the import and distribution of fabrics has been carried out by a group on a common basis, if sales and profits have been established on a common basis and then distributed according to the capital contributed by each member of the group, the fact that the Deputy District Commissioner has appointed the members of the group to import and distribute the fabric in the district, There is no difference in the determination of this group as an association of persons-C.I.T. Vs. Buldana District Main Cloth Importers Group,  42 ITR 172 (s.C.). A joint venture is not required to register with a state or federal government. In this case, it was found that persons who use their assets in a mixed profit enterprise, but not as partners, form an association of persons because of their common purpose or joint action. In such a company, the distinction between a company and an association of people can often be thin and sometimes very ambiguous. Joint ventures can be structured differently. These include the creation of a joint venture, the creation of a partnership or the prevention of any type of joint venture and a simple cooperation agreement on a particular project. “A joint commercial enterprise of several persons” (in English L.
Dict.) “A commercial or shipping enterprise conducted jointly by several persons.” (Dictionary of Black Law) A joint venture is a joint venture undertaken by several people (Cyclopedic L.Dict). A joint venture is a cooperation agreement between two or more commercial entities, often with a view to creating a new business. Each undertaking contributes assets to the joint venture and agrees on the distribution of income and expenses. There are many reasons to create some kind of joint venture, including real estate investments or developments, operating a business, designing a new product, or combining resources to apply for a contract. Tax issues must be taken into account in the context of the creation of the business, the operation of the joint venture and the possible termination of the business. In order for the joint venture to be financed by loans from the members, various anti-avoidance provisions could prevent the joint venture from benefiting from a tax deduction on interest paid. These include transfer pricing rules, which limit tax relief for payments between parties linked to the amount that should have been paid on an at-our-length basis. For loans, transfer pricing rules may also apply if the interest rate is what an independent third-party lender would have charged. You can apply if a loan between related parties exceeds the amount that would have been lent to the joint venture by an independent third party. The choice between a partnership and a joint venture should take into account tax treatment.
In a partnership, all profits and losses of the partnership in relation to their percentage of ownership are transferred to the partners through the company. This means that each partner is responsible for reporting tax on their share of profits (or deducting their share of losses) in their individual income tax return. The termination of an enterprise joint venture poses similar problems to those of creation when assets are transferred from the joint venture. . . .
