    A partnership is generally a relationship between separate persons carrying on a business with a view to profit. Broadly speaking, a trust exists where a person, the ‘trustee’, is under an obligation to hold property or derive income for the benefit of another person or persons, known as ‘beneficiaries’.

    The Partnerships and trusts section contains the following tables:

    We also have a set of more detailed tables available, in the form of Excel spreadsheets containing partnerships and trusts data at a much finer level.

    Data for each income year includes data processed up to 31 October of the following year. For example, data for the 2011–12 income year includes data processed up to 31 October 2013.

    The numbers of partnerships and trusts have been rounded to the nearest five and totals may differ from the sum of components, due to rounding.
