    No I wouldn't. But then again I don't have a business partner.

    I would say it all depends on what you all agreed on when you set up the partnership. If you use jointly owned equipment and if you all discussed moonlighting. Family, friends etc. Are you charging them to do it and using partnership equipment, then he might be entitled to his share, all thaught for consideration.

    Normally family ought to be charged double!!!!!!
