Guarantee of profit means a minimum amount of profit to be paid to a partner.

This amount shall be given to him if his share of profit is lower than the guaranteed amount.

The deficit shall be borne either by one of the old partners or by all the old partners in a particular agreed ratio.

If there is no agreement, then in their old profit sharing ratio, if his actual share of profit is more than the guaranteed amount, then, he will be given his actual share of profit.
