    Ownership percentage with foreign partner

    Can someone please help me...I would like to register a pty ltd with a foreign partner who is based in the US...I would like to know what percentage ownership is legally acceptable..is it 51% to me and 49% to him or it doesnot matter...? In order for us to be able to take advantage of business opportunities in the country...what percentage would be favourable...I would appreciate a speedy response from anyone out there...

    When it comes to "exploiting opportunities", the ownership split only really matters from a BEE point of view.

    BTW I changed the thread title - "please help" doesn't help much at all.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
