These entities, from a taxation standpoint, are partnerships. As such, the equity or ownership side of the balance sheet is different. Partnerships are defined as two or more entities that share ownership in another entity. When various owners own different percentages of the company, this can become difficult. One of the most common reasons for legal actions and lawsuits between partners is accounting being completed improperly. If the accountant that you have chosen is not experienced and knowledgeable in how to complete this type of accounting, it can cost the partnership enormous amounts of money in legal fees.
