In general, a joint enterprise agreement would include a termination date. If a joint venture is set up for a specified period of time, such a joint venture would be terminated at the end of that period. But issues related to the liquidation of all receivables and obligations and accounting continue even after such termination. Therefore, judicial dissolution may be ordered, even if the members of the joint venture do not agree with the decision or are not yet willing to terminate the transactions. This is why it is important for the parties to cooperate and understand the redundancy laws of joint ventures. However, even if, at the outset, the parties do not have explicit intentions as to the circumstances and the date of the termination of the joint venture, it is appropriate to take into account events that could terminate the joint venture and the Joint Enterprise Agreement (JVA) should set out procedures to terminate the joint venture if such events occur. A part of a joint venture may be terminated from a joint venture without dissolving the entire joint venture if it refuses to meet its obligations for the most part. In the event of termination, the termination of such a joint venture must be served. Joint ventures can often be large, complex businesses.

From this point of view, we have drawn up the following list of the first ten reflections. The key factors will naturally vary depending on the structure of the joint venture. In the oil and gas sector, for example, contractual joint ventures are on the agenda, so the recitals will deviate from the following recitals. All pension plans set up for the joint venture deserve a review. The necessary measures depend on the change or dismissal of staff to another employer, as well as the nature of existing plans. The joint venture may have entered into its own pension agreements or used those of a joint venture. The nature of the benefits granted by the agreement will be relevant.
A defined benefit agreement with a funding gap could have a significant impact on costs. It is also essential that the current CAPEX and OPEX requirements of the joint venture activities be understood so that the termination does not result in a funding gap. The outgoing partner may also have granted a parent company guarantee for the joint venture transaction, which may need to be replaced. In some cases, the termination or dissolution of a joint venture cannot be done by the agreement of the parties, but by a court decision. Under various statutes, courts may grant judicial dissolution for a variety of reasons, including: As the foregoing shows, the effect of a termination event on the activity of a joint venture can be considerable.
