A “partner division” has also been set up, allowing partners to withdraw from a partnership without causing the partnership to dissolve itself. Rupa notes that a partnership contract (unlike partnership law) defines the obligations and rights of the partners. One of the most important aspects of the UPA is that when a partner visits a company, a majority stake of the remaining partners can agree to continue the partnership within 90 days of unbundling. The Uniform Partnership Act effectively protected partnerships from dissolution after a partner had been dissolved. The UPA and RUPA set rules for many aspects of a partnership relationship, including the creation, ownership of partnership assets, valuation of fiduciary duties, settlement of partnership disputes, and termination. Each allows these rules to be modified in the individual agreement between the partners.

RUPA also clarifies the very nature of a partnership by clearly defining it as a unit and not as an aggregation of individuals. There are also a number of other important differences between UPA (1914) and subsequent versions.

The Uniform Partnership Act was created in 1914 by the National Conference of Commissions on Uniform Acts of State (NCCUSL). As of the latest iteration of the law, 37 states in the United States are complying. The Uniform Partnership Act only applies to general commitments and limited liability partnerships (LLPs). It does not apply to limited partnerships (PRs). The partnership continues, unless a partner acts to dispose of the partnership within 90 days of the date of dissolution. The revised law also has the following attributes: the basic direction of the UPA is to create stability for partnerships that have continuation agreements.
