    Business partner can be any individual or a corporate who is interacted with your business on some way or other. The master data of the Business partner will essentially include their name and address and other contact details.

    A business partner can take various role. For e.g you can enter into a contract with person who is a business partner (assigned to role; tenant) to lease out your property, In this case you would also create cutomer account to post his dues. Besides their can be a guarantor for the rent, In this case, the persson/company giving guarantee, will be created as a business partner and assigned the role "Guarantor".
