Timetables shall be laid down including the powers of the project manager, the services in kind provided by the parties for the joint venture and the initial working capital requirements. When structuring a joint venture, it is important to take due account of tax issues, in particular in the case of a project such as an institutional public-private partnership (PPP), in which a joint venture is set up by a public authority and a private company with very different tax profiles. A combination of integrated and non-integrated joint ventures that are used for more complex projects. Each party is assigned a portion of the work and is responsible for its own gains and losses, but members act as partners and can share parts of the work. In 2012, a report by EC Harris warned that one of the UK`s five construction joint ventures would end in a dispute between the parties. This is mainly due to the fact that this clause defines a series of standard boiler plate sub-clauses common to most commercial contracts (e.g. B previous agreements or warranties outside the agreement must be replaced/excluded, fluctuation agreements, exclusion of rights that a third party may have to enforce the agreement). The temptation to create a joint venture to take over a larger-than-normal project is attractive and can create a way to achieve big project goals much more easily. Joint ventures can allow you to grow geographically, increase your working capital, and even spread the risk a bit.
But a joint venture requires a pledge of trust and serious thinking. There are a few points to consider below before taking the “leap” of the joint venture: in clause 10.6, the parties agree to enter into an agreement with the bankers of the joint venture that they will not exercise the right of “set-off”. The aim is to ensure that the bank cannot accept money from the joint venture`s accounts for the offsetting of one of the parties` debts to the bank. In addition, the agreement should address insurance, bond and tax issues. Even with a well-crafted agreement, there can be disputes. So, set up dispute resolution procedures like mediation or arbitration. Both parties agree to maintain in equal shares the same working capital contribution as necessary for the execution and execution of construction projects, by [JointVenture.Name], without the prior written consent of both parties, may not be withdrawn from [JointVenture.Name]. Both Parties undertake to make contributions to the time and work necessary to fulfil the obligations of the Joint Undertaking. Neither party is required to offer a certain period of time to support the joint venture. Both parties are free to pursue business opportunities outside the joint venture and are under no obligation or liable for drawing the other party`s attention to additional business opportunities.
This is an unregistered joint venture, so each JV partner receives its share of profits and becomes taxable….
