Who can use this Joint Venture Agreement Template?

it is intended primarily for use by limited companies that plan to work together through  an unincorporated joint venture agreement.

What is this Joint Venture Agreement Template for?

A joint venture agreement is similar to a partnership: two organisations join forces to work together on a project or series of projects.   Our  agreement  is is well-suited for the construction/engineering industry. And it can be used for other industries.

The joint venture agreement (JVA) sets out the basis on which the parties will cooperate, their relevant duties and scope of work, decision-making processes and financial arrangements.

What are the main issues?

Formation and scope. The parties will cooperate to find projects/contracts where they can work together.

Management. There will be a management board with one or two representatives from each party who will evaluate projects, decide on tenders and contracts as well as meeting regularly to review progress and deal with issues. There will usually be equal voting rights for all participants at management meetings.  The chairman may or may not have a casting vote.

Duration. The JV could continue for a number of projects or it might be abandoned on completion of one or if no project is found within an agreed period.

Tenders and contracts. There will be a procedure for bringing tenders to the board and for contract awards and then the running of those contracts. The parties will probably be required to commit certain resources to a contract and there may be a project director appointed to manage each project.

Financial. The need for working capital and the way in which payments from clients will be handled and distributed will be laid down. Regular management accounts will be prepared.

Problems. If a party defaults either in its observance of the JVA or on a contract with a client, there is a mechanism for dealing with this.
