You have not to query full facts.  As per heading of your query, two or more persons may enter into partnership business.  In the partnership deed agreement, (1) the name and nature of partnership business, (2) place and address of business, (3)investment of partners (4) ratio of profit or loss, (4) commencement of business, etc.,  shall be noted.  It is an optional registerable document. The partnership deed shall be executed on stamp worth Rs.500/- maximum in most states.  But it is advised to register it before the Registrar of Firms. for other details consult a local CA.

Thank you for your question

Partnership Agreement- It is a contract between two or more business partners that is used to establish the responsibilities, and profit and loss distribution of each partner, as well as other rules about the general partnership, like withdrawls, capital contributions, and financial reporting.

Partnership Deed- It is awritten document which specifies the terms & conditions of that partnership(Along with basic informat). It is not necessary to have a deed but it is advisable to have one.

Hope this will help you
