SURINAME | The Partnerships

The forms of partnerships under Surinamese law are the general partnership codified in the Surinamese Civil Code and the limited partnership as codified in the Surinamese Commercial Code.  The partnerships are construed on the basis of an authentic (notarial) deed or private deed and are required to be registered with the Surinamese Chamber of Commerce when the partnerships act as a business. A Civil Code partnership is not a legal entity, a Commercial Code private partnership neither, but the Commercial Code limited company is a legal entity.
